Birthday snow queen


This week's theme for Facebook Sunday's with Santa is 'Christmas birthday'. I thought it was a good opportunity to use the gorgeous IndigoBlu 'Rebecca - snow queen' stamp inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail silver powder on to black card.

This has been simply mounted on to a 5 x 7 card that opens landscape, with just the addition of a birthday greeting. The card was white, so I went round the edges with spectrum noir CR10 to match the sentiment.


As ever, it's difficult to get a photo that really shows the embossing, but here is a close up of part of the image:


This is also for:
