Happy Congratulations - Brayer card

Here is a Brayer card using the new Happy Congratulations stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog. This stamp set has only 4 images - the string of paper lanterns, the lantern and the two sentiments. I love the string of paper lanterns and the font of the congratulations, but I especially love the sentiment may happiness be your destination.

For this card I started with a 4 x 5 1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock. I inked up a Brayer with Daffodil Delight ink by rolling it repeatedly across the Daffodil Delight ink pad, picking it up at the end and starting over at the front of the pad to load it evenly with ink. (NOT rolling it back and forth.) Then starting at one corner of the Whisper White cardstock, I rolled the Brayer back and forth laying Daffodil Delight ink heavily on the very tip of the cardstock and then rolling toward the center just a little. I repeated this for the opposite corner, leaving a large area of white in the center of the cardstock. Then using a different Brayer (or after cleaning the first one) I did the same thing with the Brayer and Melon Mambo ink. Finally, I used the same Brayer and added a little Rich Razzleberry ink to the very tip at each of the Melon Mambo corners to darken them a bit more.

Then I stamped the string of lanterns in Rich Razzleberry ink across the top and lower corners, filling them with a variety of bright paper lanterns. The sentiment Congratulations is stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink and Heat Embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. Be sure to use your Embossing Buddy before stamping anything you want to emboss or you will have Embossing Powder all over. I covered the paper lanterns with Crystal Effects and set that aside to dry. Finally, I added the happiness sentiment banner with an anchor of Daffodil Delight Rolled Flower. These Rolled Flowers use the Sticky Rounds, with twisted and wrapped Daffodil Delight Seam Binding.
