How to Make Black and Metallic Happy Birthday Card

I love this project that Glynis has created using the latest products from Chloes Creative Cards! In this project Glynis has created a stunning background using our NEW Flowerburst Background stamp along with Onyx pearl card and a range of metallic embossing powders! Why not try recreating this project at home, you could even put your own spin on it by changing the colours! I would love to see your projects inspired by this card in the Stamps by Chloe Facebook group.

You can shop all of the new products on the website right now!
