2015 Convention Swaps - Part 2

My second card made heavy use of the Big Shot for embossing and die cutting.

Stampin' Up! supplies used:
Stamps: Dots for Days, Tin of Cards.  
Ink: Indigo Island, Versamark.  Cardstock: Cucumber Crush, Hello Honey, Indigo Island, Whisper White, Whisper White Thick Cardstock.  Tools: Big Shot, Boho Chic Embossing Folder, Lots of Labels Framelits, Banner Framelits, Magnetic Platform, Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool, Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder, Stampin' Dimensionals
  • I used the new Whisper White Heavy Cardstock for the background piece.  It has a nice, heavy weight that is great for the base piece of cardstock.
  • Before die-cutting the banner, I embossed the Dots for Days stamp on the Cucumber Crush paper with clear Stampin' emboss powder.
  • I wanted a longer banner than the Banner Framelits can cut.  I cut the banner in half and hid the cut behind with the Hello Honey piece.
