- 4" x 5-1/4" from Pool Party Cardstock
- 2 pieces each 3-1/2" square from Whisper White Cardstock

Shake the bottle of Frost White Shimmer Paint while the lid is on tight. Remove the lid and place it on some Grid Paper on your work surface open end up. Poke a Sponge Dauber down into the lid to pick up some of the shimmer paint. Lightly push the inky Sponge Dauber straight up and down on top of the dry embossed stars. Get more shimmer paint on the dauber as needed. Put the lid back on the bottle and shake again if necessary.
Cut a 4-1/2" piece of Pool Party 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon.
Lay the ribbon across the bottom of the dry embossed and shimmered rectangle so the ribbon is about 1" from the bottom edge. Flip the layers over and fold the ends of the ribbon over. Adhere the ends of the ribbon in place with pieces of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Remove the protective backing from the Tear & Tape strips and add more SNAIL to the back of the cardstock. Adhere it to the front of the Pool Party card.
