Pool Party Lovely as a Tree Winter Wishes

I used Iridescent Ice Stampin’ Emboss Powder and a Brayer to create my card share today.  My card design was inspired by the Monday Lunchtime Sketch 275.

Lovely as a Tree

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Snow Day stamp set in Pool Party ink on a Whisper White panel, then embossing the panel with the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Silver Foil Sheet with SNAIL, then to a Pool Party card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lovely as a Tree 1

I stamped the image from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set in VersaMark ink on a Whisper White panel, sprinkled it with Iridescent Ice Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  Then I rolled my Brayer across my Pool Party ink pad to load it with ink, then rolled it across the image.  I reinked the Brayer once or twice to get the full image covered, then wiped the ink off the embossed images.  I adhered the stamped panel to the card front with SNAIL, then added a Frosted Finishes Embellishment with a Glue Dot over the sentiment.

More Merry Messages

I stamped the inside of the card with a sentiment from the More Merry Messages stamp set and I adhered a strip of Pool Party card stock and a strip of Silver Foil Sheet with SNAIL to finish the inside of the card.
