Hi card making friends and welcome back. Today I have a couple of cards to share created with the Spellbinders May Embossing Folders of the month Clubs. As always they are fabulous again this month with a Birthday Theme, so it was fun stock piling some birthday cards as I really need them. I used a couple of different ink techniques for today’s cards, I hope you like them.
PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. See below for my full disclosure.
I’m carrying on with my May color theme of green, blue and purple. It does really test your creativity to try and stick to these colors all month, haha, but I did it.
Both of these ink techniques are a fast and easy way to add interest to an embossed image without a pile of work.
So let’s jump in with directions for today’s cards.
Spellbinders May Embossing Folders – Candles for Every Birthday
Start by ink blending the card front (4-1/4 x 5-1/2″) with Simon Says Stamp Pawsitivly Saturated Inks in Surf, Pearfection and Iris
Next, place the card front into the Candles for Every Birthday embossing folder and run it through the die cutting machine.
Then, use Gina K white pigment ink, and gently rub the ink pad across the embossed candles to highlight them. Set aside to dry (pigment ink takes awhile – I use my heat gun).
Finally, use Yellow stickles to highlight the flame on each candle.
Embellish with die cut balloons from the Large die of the Month kit, Balloons and Birthday Wishes.
Add a sentiment using the Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month Silhouette Balloon Greetings. And a little white gel pen to highlight.

Spellbinders May Embossing Folders – 3D Folder Balloons and Banners
Start with a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ card front cut from Waterfall cardstock.
Next, place inside the Balloons and Banners 3/D embossing folder and run it through the die cutting machine.
Then, using a blending brush, lightly add Pawsitively Saturated Surf Ink to the embossed areas.
Finally, die cut the balloons using the Large Die of the Month Kit Balloons and Birthday Wishes and use foam squares to overlay them onto the piece
