CASE Study 182: Happy Birthday Emboss Resist

Hi friends! This week is going FAST! I've been working on lots of things behind the scenes - so many ideas, so little time!

Of course I made time to play along with CASE Study again this week - it's so fun guesting with this amazing team! Here is the inspiration from Joni for this week...

Ohhh, distress inks and emboss resist, yes please! I broke out my Reverse Confetti supplies and got inky!

I embossed the feather from Peacock Pretties in white and blended on Iced Spruce, Evergreen Bough and Weathered Wood Distress Inks. I sprayed with Olive Glimmer mist and spritzed on some plain water. I cut a window and embossed a pattern from Whole Lotta Dots on vellum to layer behind. Gold foil paper borders the window and also the fabulous Beautiful Banners die cut. The sentiment is from Beautiful Banners. Finally, I finished with some sequins.

Here's a peek inside the card...

I hope you'll play along at CASE Study this week, and make sure to stop by and see what the amazing design team have created!
