I started with a Very Vanilla card base cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″.  Then I cut a panel of Pool Party Core’dinations Card Stock to 4″ x 5-1/4″, embossed it with the Northern Flurry Embossing folder and sanded the raised areas.  I cut a strip of More Amore DSP to 1-7/8″ x 3-3/4″ and I adhered it with SNAIL to a strip of Pool Party Card Stock cut to 2″ x 3-7/8″.  Next, I cut a strip of Very Vanilla Card Stock to 1-7/8″ x 3″, stamped the Snowflake Soiree images in VersaMark ink, sprinkled them with Pool Party Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed the images.  Then I sponged the edges of the snowflake embossed panel with Pool Party ink and I adhered the panel with SNAIL to a Pool Party Card Stock Strip cut to 2″ x 3-1/8″.  I adhered the two layered strips of card stock to the embossed and sanded panel with SNAIL.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the Apothecary Arts stamp set onto a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock cut to 1/2″ x 2-1/4″ using VersaMark ink.  I sprinkled the sentiment with Pool Party Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it, then adhered a strip of Pool Party Card Stock cut to 5/8″ x 2-1/4″ to the sentiment strip with SNAIL.  I trimmed the flag end with my scissors and adhered the sentiment to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional on the left side and SNAIL on the right side.  I finished the card by piercing the upper part of the panel and placing a Designer Builder Brad through the hole.  I placed a Large Rhinestone in the center of the brad and added 3 smaller rhinestones on either side of the brad and I adhered the card front to the Very Vanilla card base with SNAIL.

I really like the new Pool Party Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I feel like I’ve been embossing everything this week!  Hope that you’re enjoying your new items from the Spring Catalog too and I hope that you’re getting excited about Sale-a-bration, it’s only a few days away!  Be sure to post a comment about your favorite Sale-a-bration item for your chance to win some blog candy.
