Wax Paper Resist Birthday Card

I learned how to do wax paper resist on glossy paper in the newest issue of Through the Craft Room Door and am thrilled with how this card turned out. I will be sharing it in the monthly classes I teach in my home. The embossing folder I used for the technique is from Cuttlebug and is called Roses by Anna Griffin. I sponged on red Distress ink and attached a Memory Box butterfly. The birthday sentiment die is also from Memory Box and I put white behind the word openings before attaching to the card.

I am entering this card in the Things that Fly challenge at Simon Says Stamp and the 2 Word Sentiment challenge at Aud Sentiments.

Very pretty background. love the colouring and I do believe I have that embossing folder too untouched I might add. So much gooodies and not enough time to play. Off to log onto Through The Craft Room Door. Not had a chance yet to read the new magazine articles.
Hugs Mrs A.

A beautiful card design. I love the look of the background as well. It has been ages since I tried that technique so thanks for the reminder.
