Thanks Birdie Card - Dry Embossing with SU!'s Texturz Plates

Fun & Fast Notes is really such a versitale stamp set, but rarely do I stamp with it!  I really should change that up! 

Not sure if you can see it or not, but the Basic Black CS is dry embossed with SU!'s Flower Texturz Plate [one of many].  Here is a tip to getting a super good impression.  Ready?  I learned this at Convention!  Wait for it.....

Spritz the CS with a bit of water BEFORE you run it through the Big Shot and the impression will come out super clean and extra deep!  "Water!?!  Seriously?  That is the big secret?"  Yes, indeed-ee-do!  Give it a go!

1. Fold your Whisper White CS in half and crease with the Bone Folder.
2. Use the Flower Texturz Plate to Dry Emboss “simple flowers” on the Basic Black CS with the Big Shot. Build your “Big Shot Sandwich” from bottom to top as follows: Multipurpose Platform on TAB 1, Textured Plate, Basic Black CS, Silicone Rubber and Impressions Pad. Adhere to gift card.
3. Stamp “birdie” in Black Staz On Ink onto Whisper White CS. Clean stamp with Staz On Cleaner.
4. Color in the “birdie” image with the following Stampin’ Write Markers:
        • Flower – Bermuda Bay, Stem – Old Olive, Bird – Crushed Curry, Beak & Feet – Pumpkin Pie
5. Layer onto Bermuda Bay CS.
6. Punch the flower center with the 1/16” Circle Punch and insert an Earth Elements Brad – More Mustard. Adhere to Old Olive CS with three Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere to gift card.
7. SNAIL, fold in half & trim a 2½” piece of Black Gingham Ribbon. Adhere under Bermuda Bay CS.
