2. Make your card front.
~Put SNAIL on your Whisper White card front around all four edges, two strips down the center both horizontally and vertically.
~Start with your Light Color Cardstock. Place it at the top of your card front at an angle making sure to cover both corners and the sides so no white shows at the top or sides.
~Add you Medium Color pushing it up against the Light Color so no White shows in between them.
~Next, add your Dark Color pushing it up against the Medium Color making sure there is no white showing between color strips or around any of the side.
3. Turn so you can see the Whisper White card front. Cut off all the colored cardstock from around the edges using either scissors or your Paper Trimmer. Admire the Gradient/Ombre Colors!
4. Put your Gradient or Ombre Card Front inside your Embossing Folder and run it through your Big Shot.
5. Glue your Embossed Card Front onto your Card Base.
6. Add your sentiment. Just a note: I liked the larger sentiment better than the smaller one.
Your Card is finished!
