Honey Bee Frappe

Honey Bee Stamps is the sponsor this week at the Modsquad Challenge. I had to use the NEW  Frappe Shape Card Dies. I started with cutting the base on my large Gemini. The die is 12" tall. I also cut 1 whip cream and a card front all from white cardstock.

My plans mostly changed LOL. I originally covered a piece of acetate with Crystal Crackle. It didn't crackle! Not even when I tried to twist and crack. The idea was the cracking would resemble crushed ice.


 

But it had good dimension and some air bubbles so I used it. I cut a frame from 1 front and adhered the acetate then colored with pink and orange alcohol ink.  Here I stamped with a TH tool & felt.


It wasn't vibrant enough so I cut another card front from a watercolor staming with a block in my stash.



 I still wanted an ice look so I embedded some holographic grass between the front acetate and colored panel.




 For the cream I used a crystal glaze and snow texture embossing. It wasn't enough for me and I couldn't find my Snow Marker. I has these tiny sequins in an unmarked package. Darn it, I want more. I glued all over cream and the acetate portion.

I had intended to stamp Enjoy on the acetate but added the sequins already so I used the "Just For You" from the Enjoy stamp set. I used the Shake It Off sentiment set on the inside. Also the inside of the front is a great place to put the Gift Card Pocket.
