For this label, I die cut a piece of thin cardboard with one of the Apothecary collection framelits with my Big Shot. Then I dunked it in versamark ink and heat embossed it with silver powder. After repeating this 2-3 more times, I mottled it by using a thick embossing powder the last time. I used Glassy Glaze, a wonderful product that Stampin’ Up! retired a few years ago. I’m hoarding what I have, but it’s almost gone. It’s another of those misunderstood and underused products that I loved, but it didn’t sell well enough to stay in the catalog. *sigh* That’s okay, though, because there are tons of other products to keep me happy!
Here’s the rest of the card.
I stamped the middle snowflake with our Illuminate watermark glimmer ink, then used heat & stick powder and Dazzling Diamonds glitter on it. I stamped the snowflake a few more times in the Illuminate ink, then matted it with brushed metallic silver card stock.
I embossed the front of the card with the Petals-aplenty embossing folder and added a brad to the center of the snowflake. I thought the Whisper White organza ribbon would be a nice touch, and soften the boldness of the white punched sentiment.
I got a sneak peek at the Spring catalog and the Sale-a-bration flier. You’re going to love it!! I saw a couple things in there that my mom has been asking for! All I can say is – 40 pages of cuteness! My bank account is in trouble. I’m going to have to show great restraint this time.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy – and have a wonderful day!
