Hello everyone, I'm back from a long holiday and here is my first project. I made a birthday card with Rupert, the dragon. I have had this die set for a while but it remained untouched. Now I thought he deserved a birthday card.
My goal was to give a background to Rupert which will emphasise him. So in the end I decided to choose a white background with embossed roses on it. And why roses? Because in Hungary there is a famous dragon, Süsü who's best friend is the little prince and who wanted to be a rosebud because then the butterflies would fly on him. He adored the butterflies. He was a very gentle dragon and I assume Rupert is a kind spirit too.
The text is from one of my favourite stamp sets, because I use the Crazy Talk a lot. I stamped the texts on black card with embossing ink, then I heat embossed with Super Fine white embossing powder. Don't forget to use the Ranger Anti-Static pouch!
