Henna Mango Birthday!

Hi there my crafting friends, I know I am early but I have decided to change the post I did have scheduled so I could enter this card into, the post is only delayed by a couple of days so I am sure none of you would mind.

I love these little CAS cards and I am guilty of not doing a lot of them so I decided to give it a go.

I folded an A4 sheet of White card in half to make an A5 card then cut that in half again to give me an A6 card for my base.

Using another piece of White card I adhered my mask on top with masking tape and spread some paste over the top, not completely covering the mask as I only wanted a small section, I then left that to dry overnight.

I originally was going to leave the pasted leaves White but then decided to add just a spot of colour so I stenciled over the leaves with Crushed Olive distress ink then attached this to my base card.

On more White card I stamped the Henna Mango and painted it in using Mica Pigments. When finished and dry I cut round the Henna Mango but chopped off the trailing branches as they were too thin to cut round. 

Using my Versamark Ink Pad I inked all over the design and heat embossed it three times with Clear Embossing Powder, this gave a nice glaze appearance.

I placed this in the center of my card then along the bottom I stamped my sentiment using Crushed Olive again.

There you have my finished card. Dimension are roughly 4.2" X  6".
