Woodware Magic Anti-Static Pad WW2352

Method:
1.    Dust the surface of a 105x148mm piece of Coconut White Foundation Card with the Woodware Magic Anti-Static Pad to eliminate any static.  Ink the Daisy Illusion Background Stamp (UMS803) in Versamark ink and stamp in the centre of the panel.  Sprinkle with Clear Embossing Powder.  Tap away any excess powder and heat with a heat tool to melt the powder.
2.    Use a Mini Blending Tool to apply Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio and Squeezed Lemonade to the heat embossed panel, as shown.  Trim the panel to 90x130mm 
3.    Stamp the “Hello Sunshine” sentiment from the Summertime Gnome stamp set (CEC843) onto a 27x130mm strip of white vellum.  Wrap it around the bottom of the heat embossed and inked panel, and secure to the reverse.
4.    Create a white 108x140mm card base (fold at the top) from Coconut White Foundation Card.  Fix the embossed and inked panel along the top edge of the card front using foam tape.
5.    To finish, fix clear sparkling sequins around the sentiment using Cosmic Shimmer Glue.
