Happy Birthday Mixed Media card

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my Sin City stamps new post.
This is Irit here today and I am going to share my Mixed Media card made with two gorgeous sets of Sin City stamps.
Usually I don't make too many cards, but sometimes the sentiment are just perfect for a card or two or even many.
So here is my Birthday card made in Mixed Media style with a lot of background stamping, hand cut stamped images, misting, heat embossing and more. 
It's perfect for any gender as the colors can fit any person of any age. 

As you know this new adventure is not age connected,  I began my crafty adventure when I was a pretty old lady and it has been a success so far.

Supply list:

And as usual- here is a full Step by step tutorial for you to follow if you want to make a similar card for your loved ones:

1. Die cut the  cardstock to 6" x4 1/2'' rectangle using any stitched rectangle die.
Mist the  cardstock with a mix of three green- blue- yellow mists.
Let this dry before adding the next color.

2. Stamp the hot air balloon and the clocks using Sin City stamps , with black pigmented ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.

3. Mat your stamped card with black cardstock and attach with staples at the corners.

4. Stamp the clock and two sentiments on the white cardstock with the same pigmented ink and heat emboss the stamped piece. Hand cut the clock and the sentiment strips as shown.

5. Mist the hand cut images with yellow mist and when dry glue them onto the card.

6. Stamp the part of Collage stamp image (the letter part mostly) over white chipboard hot balloon using the same heat embossing technique as on previous steps.
Paint the stamped chipboard with distress blue ink.

7.Adhere the stamped chipboard piece onto the card. Add a few metal cogs and some clear glaze drops. Finish by adding the metal winged charm over the stamped crown.
