Velveteen technique Birthday Card

One last post today, since I missed posting a few days. I used the velveteen technique once again, with the Hero Arts 3 Ferns stamp to make a birthday card. Spellbinder Octagon shapes were used to cut & mat, then I had a new Sizzix embossing folder I thought I'd try. I inked the folder with Archival Veridian dye ink, then embossed. I thought the effect was pretty. Then had to try a way to use it on the card so that it didn't overpower. The butterfly is an MS punch, and I used Glossy Accents on it (only one coat, could have used another coat to get better shine) to try to get it to show up better. The sentiment was cut with a S/binder fancy tag, brushed the Veridian ink around the edges, applied some pearls.
