The Confetti Textured Impressions Embossing Folder creates a nice background for your card. The opening is large enough to place your favorite sentiment, and by sponging a few colors around the embossing you get a colorful, happy birthday.
My card base is Mossy Meadow Card Stock that I layered with a piece of Whisper White. The colors I used on my embossed layer are Pear Pizzazz, Bermuda Bay, Lost Lagoon, and Crushed Curry. You can add any colors to suite the person receiving the card, leave the layer the way it is, or just sponge with one color. Another technique for this folder would be to ink the folder before running it through your Big Shot to emboss the color right into your layer, or you could use sponges to get a few different colors. A few stars added a bit more fun to the card.
Tip: When adhering small embellishments, the Fine Tip Glue Pen works great. You can get just the right amount of glue needed without having left over residue. The unique cap design keeps it clog free too.
