Kylie's International Blog Highlights Daisy Lane Encouragement Card

Hello and welcome to my second post today; I am going to share with you a card that I made for Kylie's International Blog Highlights.  I used my Featured stamp set the Daisy Lane Stamp set for my card today.  I am going to sharing with you all types of cards you can create with it this week.  The theme for the Highlights was Encouragement and the Daisy Lane Stamp Set has some great sentiments for just that reason.  Plus some wonderful images as well.  Okay okay here's my card.

A Little Shine: 

For this card I used the fern image from the stamp set and stamped it onto a piece of Pretty Peacock (2019-2021 In Color) cardstock with Versamark ink.  Versamark is a clear sticky ink used for embossing or watermarking.  I then added silver embossing powder to the sticky ink and heat set it.  If you haven't ever watched a image heat emboss it's so much fun and amazing to watch the powder go to a molten liquid and then harden again.  After I had that done I went ahead and heat embossed the sentiment that reads "it's your time to shine" with the silver embossing powder on a strip of Basic Black Cardstock, and sat it aside to cool completely.  I then added my peacock layer to a Basic Black mat cut at 4 x 5 1/4 and added it to my thick Whisper White card base (5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4). 
I then added some silver thread loops to the front of the card using just a little snail behind where the sentiment was going.  I then added the sentiment on a couple Stampin' Dimensionals.  At this point I felt like it still needed a little something something.  So, I got out my clear wink a stella brush pen and flicked on some glitter.  This added just the right touch, sadly it doesn't really show up in the photos.  You can kind of see it here in the close up.  
For the inside of the card I stamped a few of the ferns in Pretty Peacock ink on a piece of regular whisper white cardstock.  I also stamped Friend from the stamp set for the inside sentiment and then attached it to the inside.  I also did the same thing to the envelope.  
I can totally see me at Christmas using this card but having changed the sentiment to a more Holiday Greeting instead of the encouragement one I used today.  I think it would make a very pretty Christmas Card.  
I just love how it turned out and I hope that you do too.  If you love my card please vote for me as your favorite over on the highlight page.  If you find another designers card you love more please vote for them; they are all great.  And, by the way have created some fabulous cards for you all.  To vote for my card and check out what everyone created click here.
