Spellbinders - Stay Fabulous

Hello friends, seems we can never have too many birthday cards in our stash.  I am always using up recycled bits and bobs that gather on my desk, along with current products to upcycle and bring back the 'pretty' in a new style.

I have recycled a tulip image and layered it onto the Spellbinders Em-bossing Fold'ers Flowers & Leaves 4.25 x 5.5 in Single Sided.  The folder had been sponged using Imagine inks - I love the way it makes the embossing pop!

The birthday sentiment is from the Classic Spellbinders Special Birthday Sentiments Stamps.  This has been cut/embossed using the Nestabilities Oval Bliss Etched Dies using the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6" and sponged around the edges using Imagine Memento Luxe in Rose Bud.  I have added highlights t the sentiment and the embossed front cover using Chameleon Pens
