Another Fall Birthday with Day of Gratitude!

Hi Stampers! 

I created this card using the CCMC168Sketch at Create with Connie and Mary and for a second submission to the SUO28 Fall Challenge.  Again, I cannot emphasis enough, how great the other entries and Design Team samples are at both sites- check them out! :-)

To create this card:

Use the Big Shot™ with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to  emboss a piece of the Spice Cake Designer Series paper and with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Pool Party cardstock. 

This picture shows the texture of the background Spice Cake DSP
Use a Sponge Dauber with Soft Suede ink to distress the Pool Party pieces and cut for the horizontal layers on the sketch.

Ink the large medallion from Day of Gratitude with Pool Party Classic Ink and pounce Soft Suede Classic Ink onto the stamp (over the Pool Party) with a Sponge Dauber.   Stamp the image onto Very Vanilla cardstock and carefully cut around the edges of the medallion.  Sponge more Soft Suede around the edges of the medallion and also sponge the edges of the Pool Party card front.

Spray the background DSP, medallion image and sentiment with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint spray (mixed with 70% alcohol).  Once the paint spray dries, adhere the layers to the DSP, mount the medallion (with SU! Dimensionals), the Soft Suede Taffeta Ribbon, sentiment and add the pearls to finish off the card.  

You can see the Shimmer Paint a bit better in this one :-)

Stamp Sets: Day of Gratitude, Sincere Salutations
Cardstock: Pool Party, Very Vanilla
Ink: Pool Party, Soft Suede
Accessories: Big Shot™, Vintage Wallpaper and Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folders, 3/8” Soft Suede Taffeta Ribbon, Large Oval Punch, Sponge Daubers, Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint,  Pearls
