So I cut the 'Birthday' out with the new Happy Birthday Thinlit trimmed it up a little where the Happy normally sits as I didn't want that on there.
I water colour washed the Lemon Lime Twist ink on some Shimmer cardstock (don't think you can see the pretty shine on the computer screen well). When that was dry I embossed the word HUGS on the front of the card.
Black embossing - but wait we don't have black embossing powder? How did I do this? The same way I did on the font on my cards HERE where you ink the stamp with Versa Mark, then coloured ink then stamp, cover with clear embossing powder, heat and watch the magic happen.
Along with your trimmer and adhesives you will need these goodies to make this card.
