Lovely as a Tree - Polished Stone

This is almost a duplicate of a card that I made back in 2002-2003.   Glossy card stock is back, so it was a perfect time to show my customers yesterday at the club workshop how to do the Polished Stone technique using the Glossy card stock. Even the Lovely as a Tree set was available back then.  It's been around ever since I've been a demo.  The card stock back then was Glorious Green which is a close match to the Emerald Envy. 

1.     The base of the card is Emerald Envy cardstock cut at 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” and scored at 4-1/4” in the middle.
2.    The Glossy cardstock is cut at 2-1/2” x 4-3/4”.
3.    To do the Polished Stone onto the Glossy Cardstock:
Saturate a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and set on the E clear block.  Add 3 drops each of the reinkers (Emerald Envy, Soft Sky and if you wish Lemon Lime Twist) to the cotton ball that is saturated with alcohol.  Now, dab the Glossy cardstock with it until you like the desired look.  You may take another dry cotton ball to dab off the excess and/or use the Heat Tool to dry the ink.
4.    Once it is dry, ink up the Lovely as a Tree stamp with Black Memento ink. Let dry or use Heat Tool again before adhering to the 2-3/4” x 5” Basic Black cardstock with Adhesive. 
5.    Attach to the top of the Emerald Envy base card leaving room for the “Happy Birthday” message from Happy Birthday Gorgeous or Milestone Moments stamp set at the bottom that will be stamped with Black Memento ink.
