To begin, I used the PPP Happy Birthday To You die on a panel of Hero Arts Nautical cardstock. I wanted to inlay the sentiment, so if you do too be sure to hang onto those interior pieces you weed out. Next, I die cut the sentiment again using Altenew Gold Foil cardstock. On the back of the Nautical panel, I used a bunch of washi tape so that I could piece everything together.
Next, I used the candle border stamp from the PPP Birthday Borders stamp set to heat emboss using Hero Arts Gold embossing powder. For a small pop of color I used a blue, white, and yellow Polychomos pencil on some of the candles.
As I wanted this to be a masculine card I resisted my urge to embellish with “sparkleys”. 😂I applied the panel to a white card base and done!
