I love the template from Papertake this week and thought I would use it for a very special birthday card I’ve been asked to make.

I had in mind to use my lovely Penny Black Lily stamp but when I started to look didn’t really have any patterned papers in the yellow and Orange shades that I needed for it. Then I remembered the ‘Now That’s Funky’ DC I brought from Funky Hand little while back and managed to find the perfect colours in the Sunrise collection.
Instead of printing the paper and sticking it to card as I would usually do I decided to have a go printing directly onto the card. I was really pleased with the results especially as it was printed onto a hammer effect card and as an added bonus, it made the card look posh because the back has the pattern on it too!

To go over the top of this I made a matt by putting some cream card through my Cuttlebug in an embossing folder and gave it a quick swipe with an ink pad to emphasize the design.
