Card Sketch #37 - Make a Wish

Here is sketch #37. I decided to get out of the Christmas card making stretch with this one, and went totally in a different direction.

First of all, use your embossing buddy and go over your card stock. Stamp images with versamark and sprinkle with embossing powder. I just love the Glacier white EP I bought from CHF, it's the best on the market in my opinion. See link below. Anyway, I had a little bit of the EP left on the card stock when I heated it up, but thought that it looked like someone had blown on the dandelions to make a wish! I didn't plan it that way intentionally, but it worked out great in the end!

I cut the main panel in three separate equal parts and mounted it on white pearlized glimmer paper. Then popped that up on the yummy designer paper! I added the gray ribbon and cut out the sentiment with the window word punch and attached it on the ribbon!
