Manhattan Flower

Oooooh, aaaaah I wish you could see this card in person. And it took under 15 minutes to kreate. No joke!! Sorry the first photo is a tad blurry, I was trying to play with my photo program the best I could to try and get the glisten of the Iridescent Ice to show. If you click on the photo you may be able to see it a bit more clearly.
*I ran a piece of Vellum Cardstock through my Big Shot with my very neglected Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder. That in itself was so pretty, BUT I needed more :)
*I cut out the flowers and then lightly went over the embossed area with my VersaMark pad. Getting it all over the raised edges of the flowers and also hitting inside some petals.
*Sprinkled Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder all over and set the sparkle with my Heat Tool. SO pretty!! The shimmer and glisten from the Iridescent Ice screamed Rich Razzleberry.
*Placed the Vellum on just a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 piece of Rich Razzleberry with a single Clear Rhinestone Brad which allows you to swivel the vellum to reveal my message. *My sentiments were inked in Craft Whisper White and again given some pizazz with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder.
If you have the Big Shot and this folder, give yourself a few minutes and try this, you will see just how pretty this is in person. Hope you like it!
