Expressions in Ink Happy Birthday

Here's another beautiful card using the Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the Biggest Wishes stamp set. 

I was inspired by Patty Bennett's design but changed up the design a bit by using a Pale Papaya card base and an additional layer of Magenta Madness behind the DSP. I used some very retired 1/8" gold ribbon, plus the new Scalloped Contour Dies for the Basic White layer. I have to say I'm not crazy about this specific die as I couldn't get the loose edges to lay down following the heat embossing of birthday. (I love all the rest of the dies in the set, however!) I also learned I needed to heat set the happy to dry the ink, so no specks of gold embossing powder would stick to the Magenta Madness ink accidentally. Oh well, live and learn. The card is embellished with 2021-23 InColor Jewels.

I hope this design inspires you to design a similar card to send out to your friends and family!
