1- Emboss the 4” x 5 ¼” Whisper White cardstock with the Old World Embossing Folder. Add a little Shimmer Paint to a ¼” piece of Stamping Sponge, rub the paint along the edges of the cardstock to add some shine. Let dry.

2- Cut some houses and a small tree from the DSP using the coordinating dies. Cut the 3” x 4” Whisper White cardstock with the curvy tree dies, one on top and one on the bottom.

3- Add the embossed Whisper White cardstock onto the front of your cardbase. Add the Pool Party Cardstock behind the piece of DSP, then place them in the center of the embossed cardstock.

4- Add the white tree cut cardstock to the bottom area with a little of the pool party cardstock peaking out at the bottom. Arrange the Houses and tree on this white piece with dimensionals.

5- Stamp the large greeting on the scrap cardstock with Misty Moonlight ink and fussy cut out. Stamp the smaller greeting on the ½” strip and flag the ends with the Banner Pick a Punch. You may need a post it note to hold the strip in the punch (see video below for details).

6- Add the greetings to the vellum circle, you can add dimensionals to the larger one if you want. With 12” of ribbon add a faux bow behind the vellum. Then adhere to the bottom left side of the white tree die cut cardstock with dimensionals.

7- Add three stars.

All Done!
