I had some fun with lots of layers on this card. I'm not sure who I will send it to or exactly what I will use it for, but it's cute! This also uses several retiring products. 

  • Pool Party card stock 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
  • Pool Party Core'dinations 4" x 5-1/4"
  • Stamps: Layered Labels
  • Ink: Summer Starfruit, Pool Party
  • Accessories: Honeycomb embossing folder, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Stampin' Dimensionals, Stampin' Pierce Mat, Paper Piercing Tool, Essentials Paper Piercing Pack, Dazzling Details, Sanding Block
Start off by folding the Pool Party card stock on the score line. Then run the Pool Party Core'dinations card stock through the Big Shot in the Honeycomb embossing folder. Take the sanding block and sand off some of the raised texture. I love the grungy distressed look that this gives. I sure will miss having the Core'dination card stock.

Next run the largest Apothecary Accents Framelit through the Big Shot with a scrap of Whisper White card stock. Take you Stampin' Pierce Mat, Essentials Paper Piercing Pack, and Piercing Tool to add the piercing around the edge of the label.

Next take a scrap of DSP (I think this is some retired Sycamore Street DSP from last year) and cut it out with the next smaller Layered Labels Framelit. Now take the second from smallest Layered Labels framelit and use it on a scrap of Midnight Muse card stock. Finally stamp the create image onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock in Pool Party ink and cut it out with the smallest Layered Labels Framelit. Finally I stamped the create image again in Summer Starfruit ink and used a circle punch to punch out the center.

The labels were glued together with a combination of glue stick and Stampin' Dimensionals to make the labels pop up off the card front. Then the stack of labels were stuck onto the card front with a few Stampin' dimensionals. Finally I added some Dazzling Details around the edge of the Pool Party label just to add some sparkle.
