Dry Embossing

Last week one of the cards Judy and made was one I had seen while looking through Stampin' Connection, a resource for Stampin' Up! demonstrators similar to Splitcoast Stampers.  You can see the original card HERE.  We first embossed a piece of whisper white card stock with the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder that had been inked up with Marina Mist classic ink.  You can get the full details by following THIS link.

We decided not to use the ribbon embellishment in the original card and rather than using the Smooch Spray we made our own "shimmer spray" by mixing Frost White shimmer paint with Isopropyl alcohol.  We also decided to put our sentiment at the top of the image panel.

This is our card
