Happy Birthday Rachel

This card was for the birthday of one of my nieces, Rachel. I was doing some experimenting with Distress Inks, and it grew from there.

Take pale pink layering cardstock, use a scallop border punch and Pumice Stone Distress Ink on the lower edge, and affix to a white base card using double-sided tape.

The main topper was created by dabbing Shabby Shutters and Victorian Velvet Distress Inks onto a craft sheet, spritzing with a Perfect Pearls + water mix, and then smooshing watercolour paper into the ink. When almost dry, smoosh again, until the paper is covered.

When inked paper is completely dry, trim lower edge with Martha Stewart Doily Lace border punch, and ink all edges. Stamp Hero Arts Border Messages stamp in Versafine Sepia.

Embellish with lace ribbon bunting, pink pearls and pink sparkly butterfly.
