Happy Birthday
by Donna Sledzik


Hello everyone!  Today's card features a fun Gel printing background.

I began by using the new Curlicue Die Plate to die cut white cardstock, and used it as a mask on the Gel Plate.


I applied Distress Oxide Inks directly onto the gel plate and used a brayer to blend the colors.  Next, I placed the die cut on top of the gel plate and used white cardstock to pick up the print.  I removed the die cut and rolled the brayer across the gel plate to spread out the remaining ink and placed the pulled print on the plate to add more color to the print.  (Ignore the yellow fish on my gel plate.  It's stained from another printing)


I trimmed the printed background and used foam tape to adhere it to a white card base.

The words "Happy Birthday" were die cut from Gold Foil Paper, and the shadow from white cardstock.  I glued the words to the white shadow and then adhered it to the center of the gel printed background.


To finish the card I used some Fairy Crystals to add a little shine.

Thanks for stopping by today!
