I used Ellison Texture Plates for the embossing of the background here and my white prismacolor colored pencil to highlight a few of the embossed parts. Woo! I changed it up a bit and added an extra branch! : )
And here I used Stampin Up! photo corner punch. I wanted to take a close-up picture to show you the layers. I really used 3 punched pieces, two Chocolate Chip and one Certainly Celery (although it looks a bit more Wasabi in this picture!) Anyway, I glued them just a bit staggered to show a tiny bit of the green and I love the effect I got with it. I messed up on this card and didn't get a good cut with my nestabilities....apparently I didn't line it up right, anyway, that is why the sentiment is in sort of a weird place! I had to cover up my mistake! As you can see, I didn't do a close up of that part!
So there you go! The other two cards! Wowser! : ) I think I might get a few minutes before bed tonight to try to make a few more birthday cards! Thanks for looking!
