Birthday Blooms & Celebrate You - Shadow Word Die Technique

It's pink and pretty.

Soft subtle Pink Pirouette card stock with matching stamping using the Birthday Blooms stamp set creates a gorgeous monotone background for this card and that die cut sentiment just takes centre stage.

I used a new favourite technique, picked up from the fabulous Jennifer McGuire and die cut the sentiment in Whisper White, clear heat embossing it several times for a super shiny finish.  Then I layered it upon three more die cuts of the same word in Pink Pirouette to create a pink shadow which blends with the stamped layer below, yet sits very proud above it, creating great dimension due to the four layers of card making up that word sentiment.

Its just a very simple, yet cool way of creating an attractive centrepiece.

The Celebrate You Thinlits Dies are available free from the Sale A Bration Brochure if you place an order of £90 (not including shipping) between now and 31st March.  I have used mine many times for Blog Posts throughout the current Sale A Bration promotion.  The three words in the pack are very versatile.

Hope you like it.

Thanks for looking and please pop back again.

Bye for now.
