World Card Making Day ~ FotoBella DT

     Happy World Card Making Day! I made a card using the KaiserCraft Pen & Ink Bundle, KaiserCraft Pen & Ink 6.5" Paper Pad, and Prima Marketing Metallique Waxes from

      I took my design inspiration from the #109 Sketch at Card Mania Challenges, fussy-cutting the star from the KaiserCraft Pen & Ink 6.5" Paper Pad.

     Starting with a black card base, I applied Prima Marketing White Gesso to the Tim Holtz Gothic Stencil. Once it was dry, I rubbed over it with Prima Marketing Metallique Waxes (Old Silver, Brushed Iron, and Vintage Gold).

     I applied the numbers to the Tim Holtz Numbered Stencil using Prima Marketing Black Gesso, rubbing over it with Metallique Wax (Vintage Gold). HAPPY was cut from one of the stickers, and inked around the edges, along with the star, using the KaiserCraft Mini Ink Pad (Black). The rest of the sentiment was embossed in black with Emerald Creek Onyx Frost Embossing Powder. Then I followed the star design with hand-stitching using gold and silver thread.

     Most of the flowers and leaves are die cuts, but some were fussy-cut from the Specialty Black Foil Sheet included in the bundle.
