Here’s the full view.
First stamp the “You’re Amazing” sentiment in Versamark. Then sprinkle Melon Mambo powder on the center, pour it off, and add Tangerine Tango to the sides. Heat, then die cut with the Apothecary Accents framelits. I pierced around the inside with the Piercing Essentials pack. Just a quick note – the new paper piercing tool works a lot better with the piercing templates than the old one. It’s a little thinner, and the thinnest part is longer, so you get a better “pierce.” The old one works with them, but not quite as well. And, of course, you’re going to want the new, larger Stampin’ Pierce mat, too!
I embossed the top and bottom of the Whisper White layer with the Delicate Designs scallop folder. To avoid a crease where the edge of the folder crossed the card stock, use a shim made from 5-7 strips of cardboard. I use the cardboard from the designer series paper packs. Cut about 7 slightly narrower and longer than the folder, and glue them together. With your card stock in the folder, place the shim over the folder, making sure the area you want embossed is fully covered, but not the edge of the folder. Then run it through the Big Shot on Tab 2 without a bottom cutting plate. It works great! (Thanks, to France Martin for the tip!)
The “Love” button is from the Pennant Parade set. I stamped it in Early Espresso and punched with the 3/4″ circle punch.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.
