A card like this one can be given for so many occasions...a birthday, a new job, a promotion, a new home, I'm proud of you, You did it. There are so many reasons to say, "Hooray"!
This card was a blast to make, I combined quite a few techniques but still kept my design ultra-CAS!
To make this card I first cut white cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4. Then I masked that piece off at 3/4 of an inch on all sides. I placed the Dotlets stencil over the masked area and pressed my Versamark Pad into the circles. I covered that with white embossing powder and heat set.
Next I used Distress Inks to add the background color. The embossed areas resist the ink and you get a really fun, "How did you do that?" look!
Since my masked, emboss resist piece is the focal point, I didn't want to do much else to my card. I die cut "Hooray" 5 times, once from white card stock and four times from black. These were layered together and adhered with liquid glue. The black behind the white helps make the sentiment really pop. A scattering of sequins just adds to the celebratory feel of this design.
