Count My Blessings Birthday Card

This fall birthday card glowed in the setting sun coming through my craft room window as I photographed today's card.  I fell in love with the Count My Blessing stamp set from the Holiday catalog as soon as I saw it, but today was the first time I've had time to create something with it.  I needed a fall Birthday card and the combination of the Copper Foil Sheets, the Happy Birthday Die and the Count My Blessing stamp worked very well to create a very fast, yet stunning-looking card. 

Copper embossing and Copper foil die cut Happy Birthday

The basecard  is Night of Navy, then a layer of Copper Foil and followed by a layer of Night of Navy embossed in Copper using the Count My Blessings stamp set.  The Happy Birthday Thinlit Die was used to cut the words Happy Birthday from Copper Foil sheets and Night of Navy.  I layered the Copper Happy Birthday on top of two layers of Night of Navy slightly offset from the Copper Happy Birthday creating a drop shadow.  I tried several ribbons on the card, but decided the card didn't need anything else.

A few tips when embossing:  Dredge your Night of Navy layer with the powder in the  Embossing Buddy before stamping with  Versamark to ensure that the embossing powder only sticks to the wet Versamark ink.  If the Versamark in starts to dry while you stamping, just before you add the embossing powder, huff on the Versamark to re-wet the Versamark.  I mounted all three flowers and leaves on one large clear block to stamp my first impression to save time.  Then I moved the leaves stamp to a smaller block and stamped around the edges of the layer to fill in the design on the edges of the layer.  I used a very small brush to remove any stray embossing powder before I use the Stampin' Heat tool to set the embossing powder.

It was difficult to photograph the shimmer of the Copper Foil, but with the setting sun steaming through my window, I think I captured the detail of this beautiful card.  This is just how I imagined this card in my mind.  I'm always so happy when my vision turns out as well as my mind pictured it!
