Yesterday I did a CASE of the picture in the catalogue. Today, because of the horrendous heat here, I thought I would make a card that makes you feel cool just looking at it.
I started out by making the background. Using a sponge dauber, I applied first Crisp Cantalope and then Strawberry Slush to the Whisper White card stock, leaving a slightly mottled appearance. I then embossed the background using the Wildflower Meadow folder, but you don't notice it at all so I would suggest that you omit this step. Then, using a stamp-a-ma-jig, I stamped with Versa Mark and embossing the entire stamp using white embossing powder.
A 3/8" white taffeta ribbon and bow was attached to the lower card. The overall effect is one of coolness.
This was matted with White card stock, and then to the base card with is Crisp Cantalope.
