Hb Birthday Wishes


I’ve been playing with paint and chipboard ever since I created the framed greeting in my last post.  Here’s another quick frame – this one painted with glossy black.  This card uses embossing, too.




Note: finished card size is 4 1/4” x 5 12”

Basic Black (SU!)

4 1/4” x 11”, score at 5 1/2”, and
2 1/2” x 1 1/2”

Taffy (CTMH)

4” x 5 1/4”

Urban Garden DSP (SU!)

4” x 5 1/4”

Whisper White (SU!) 2 1/2” x 2 1/2” and 2 1/2” x 1 1/2”


Basic Black (SU!), Versamark (Tsukineko)


Party Punch (SU!); Kokopelli (PSX)


Designer Label punch (SU!); Chipboard Frame (SU!); Glossy Acrylic Craft Paint – Black (Anita’s); Foam brush (Hobby Lobby); Terra Cotta Tapestry Embossing powder (PSX); Clear Embossing powder (Stampendous); Heat gun; Scor-Pal; Adhesive Transfer Gun 714 (Scotch); Glue dots; Rotary trimmer with straight blade (Fiskars); Scissors



Paint the chipboard frame in black, and let it dry.

Using the embossing ink pad, stamp the kokopelli image on the larger white cardstock panel, and emboss with the terra cotta embossing powder.  Using glue dots, mount the image centered in the chipboard frame.

Prepare the Hb greeting by first inking the stamp with the embossing ink, then black.  Stamp on the remaining white cardstock.  Emboss with clear embossing powder. Trim the greeting closely. Punch a label tag from black cardstock, and mount the greeting in the center of the punched label.


Mount the taffy paper on the black card base.

The designer paper is cut at angles – I wanted the right angle of the paper to form the point at the top of the card.  I rotated the paper until I like the pattern of the paper, the cut the paper to fit.  Use the pattern of your chosen pattern to help you determine where you cut the paper, and mount it on the taffy mat layer.

Add the kokopelli image in the upper right corner, and the Hb greeting in the lower left area.

Final Notes


I cut a taffy layer for the inside (4” x 5 1/4”), stamped my sentiment directly on the taffy in black.

Thanks for stopping by!
