For our February Swap, we were to use a special technique or special fold. I chose to use the Bokeh technique and heat embossing. I'm not totally happy with the card--I think it would be better with darker colors. Fortunately that is an easy fix for future cards--just lay more background color on! I love the Big on Birthdays stamp set--it's so easy to make pretty cards using this stamp set.

I also made a thank you card using the So Very Much stamp set (FREE with a $50 order) from the Sale-a-Bration catalog.
You can see how the backgrounds change depending on what colors you use and how much of those colors! This card was made the same as the birthday cards except for a few additions. I cut a banner of black and stamped the "so very much" in versamark and covered with white embossing powder to heat emboss. I also added the 3 small dots at the bottom.
