For my card, I chose to rotate the sketch 90 degrees because of the stamp I wanted to use. The card base is Cherry Cobbler card stock. A layer of Petals-a-Plenty embossed Whisper White card stock was spritzed with retired Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint mixed with alcohol and attached to the card front. A piece of Snow Festival designer paper was matted with Cherry Cobbler card stock and added to the card. The image from the
Bells and Boughs stamp set was heat embossed on Whisper White card stock with VersaMark and Gumball Green embossing powder mixed with Dazzling Diamonds. I'm a diabetic and I have lots of empty test strip containers. That's what I use to mix and store the different embossing powders mixed with Dazzling Diamonds - tight lid and small enough to not take up a lot of room. The sentiment is from the Petite Pairs stamp set and also heat embossed using Gold embossing powder. The layer was matted with Cherry Cobbler card stock. Gold brads were added to the center of the flowers and the layer attached to the card using Dimensionals. The heat doesn't seem to be letting up any time soon so what else can you do but stay inside keeping cool and being creative. We have to conserve our energy, don't we? Enjoy your day.
