I tried some diamond glaze on the circles to make them look raised and/or epoxy like. Problem was there were air bubbles so it's not completely smooth. Maybe I was shaking it around too much beforehand because the tip always gets clogged and I have to stick a pin in it.
Eva, I don't know how your kids don't get into your craft things and mess stuff up. This is my son's version of the birthday card. He basically went around gathering all my scraps while I was working on my card (some were big scraps that I didn't even realize he was using!). The number 40 was even stamped on a piece of scratch paper - I was trying to test the color of the ink - then I adjusted the "0" because it looked higher than the "4," and then it ended up crooked on mine :(
So before we made the cards, I asked my son, how old does he think Daddy is? He goes, "63." Ha ha! Then he said "no, wait, 53." Ha ha ha! Maybe I shouldn't laugh so hard until I ask him how old does he think Mommy is.
OK, I have one more birthday card to make, not sure if I can make it on time. At least I think I wrapped all my Christmas presents...
