Brusho Birthday

The Brusho Crystals create fun, unique backgrounds.  I used a combination of Prussian Blue, Gamboge, and Yellow crystals for the background of this birthday card.  The bright colors just seem to say “Celebrate!”

A couple of tips when using the Brusho Crystals:

  1. Use a light touch when shaking the crystals onto the paper.  The pigment in the crystals is intense.  You can always add more color.
  2. Another very important tip is to NOT remove the lid of the containers. You can use a push pin to pierce a small hole in the lid which will allow you to sprinkle lightly.  This will also prevent a disaster if the container is accidentally dropped.

To make this card:

  • Card base – Lemon Lime Twist cardstock cut 5.5″ x 8.5″, scored at 4.25″
  • Island Indigo cardstock cut 3.75″ x 5″
  • Watercolor Paper cut 3-5/8″ x 4-7/8″
  • Spritz the Watercolor Paper & sprinkle with the Brusho Crystals. Sprintz again to blend the colors.
  • Using the Happy Celebrations stamp set, stamp the outline letters with Versamark ink onto a 1.75″ x 4″ strip of Island Indigo yardstick.  Heat emboss with White Embossing Powder.  Fussy cut the individual letters and adhere to card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Stamp the rest of the sentiment with Island Indigo ink onto an 1/2″ wide strip of Thick Whisper White cardstock.
  • Layer this onto a 3/8″ strip of Pumpkin Pie cardstock.
