I stamped the birthday image on a piece of vellum and then heat embossed it with a clear embossing powder.
Hehe, I just realized the glue on the knot hasn't completely dried yet when I took this picture. I like to put a small dab of glue on knots and bows to make sure they don't come undone in the mail (or ever =P).
These are Studio Calico's wood veneer shapes that I stained with Distressed Inks in Tea Dye and Barn Door.
