The background on this was done in the wax paper resist (crumple up a piece of wax paper, open it back up flat. Place wax paper over a piece of glossy CS and iron (a piece of paper between the iron & wax paper might be preferred). Then brayer ink over the glossy card stock.). The wax-paper resisted CS was run thru a crimper. The "Happy Birthday" was embossed.
Here's another little 'trick' I learned from a friend to keep that cord in place: nip the tiniest notch that you can in the edge of the CS. The cord will 'rest' in it but the cut-out won't show and the cord stays exactly where you put it.
