Pear Pizzazz C/S size 3-3/4″ by 4-1/4″,

card base Lost Lagoon 4-1/4 by 8-1/2
Rub Embossing Buddy(103083) over C/S. Re-ink stamp with Versa Mark(102283) Use stamp unmounted / off block, lean face down to C/S and possession stamp just a little higher than first stamping. Take your time, it will be worth it in the end.
Shadow stamping – Ink stamp, hold on to stamp that is NOT on a block (easier to see for placement, check top word (just) then look at bottom word (you) BEFORE letting stamp touch paper. If you bring the stamp up-just-a-little higher than First-stamping, gives a shadow effect…..looks like it it popping off the paper after you heat emboss.
Embossing powder is Pool Party (discontinued) but keep your eyes open on the Clearance for they may have it there.
If you don’t have the Pool Party, try Silver embossing powder (109131).
Back Ground :VersaMark(102283) largest flower in set, close to embossed letters (3 times) Gives a beautiful “Water-Mark”.
Gorgeous Grunge stamps (W 130514 / C $130517 ) If you don’t have this set WHY ? One of my go to sets for background effects.
Rubber Stamp facing you: Tap Pear Pizzazz ink (131180) in a few places on stamp; come back with Lost Lagoon (133644) tapping in areas not inked, Lastly , sparely tap Island Indigo ink (126986) only on a few of the larger dots, I used this TOP stamp with all the small speckles in this set.

I love DETAILS that sets my card apart form everyone else.
Tiny strip of Pear Pizzazz the length of card, put thought Zig Zag Embossing Folder (133738) to add texture, glue on left side .
Variegate Thick Baker’s Twine…you need enough to cover front twice with a little to adhere on to back.
Pull twine over Lost Lagoon ink pad from one-end-to-the other. Only inking certain spots.…making sure your leaving areas that are not inked. Set aside to dry. If you can’t visual this I will make a video to show you!
