Top Layer Whisper White - 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
Scraps of Whisper White for stamping & die cutting
*Stamp heron, lily pad, boats and greeting from Lily Pad Lake onto Whisper White using Stazon black ink.
*Use dies to cut out stamped images as well as several pieces of reeds/grasses.
*Use water die to cut waves in the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Whisper White panel 3 times starting at the bottom and working your way up the panel. Try to keep the margins aligned.
Color die cuts using markers.
*Stamp water in Bermuda Bay on the bottom of the inside of the card. Stamp boats on envelope in Stazon Black ink and color with markers.
Glue Bermuda Bay panel onto front of Thick Whisper White card base.
Put strips of foam adhesive around the outside of the die cut Whisper White panel. Adhere onto the top of the Thick Whisper White base covering up the Bermuda Bay panel.
Trim greeting if necessary.
Layer die cuts and greeting on top of the die cut Whisper White panel with dimensionals. If you place the heron's feet under the water and the base of the grass/reeds also under the water it helps hold the waves up, especially if you put 1/2 mini dimensional on the bases of these die cuts. Embellish with epoxy droplets.
