Brayered Birthday Card




I belong to a local stamp club and we do monthly card swaps.  I thought I would post the card I made for this last month's meeting.  Our theme was "Brayered/Birthday".  I have to admit that I had seen a simular card and wanted to try out their technique (sorry I can't give credit since I do not remember where I saw it and read about the technique).  I started with a simple white card and ran it through an embossing folder.  This was a new one by Fiskar.  I then used my hand rotary tool and cut off about 1/3 using a curvy design.  I brayered each piece a different color and then mounted them together onto a blue card base.  I love how the brayered color brings out the embossed design.  The butterflies are punched out and then also embossed and brayered.  The message is stamped and mounted on white and blue cut out with nestabilities.  Simple and fun!!
