3. Cut two 2" x 4 1/4" strips of white cardstock. Cut and emboss the edge with a die from the A2 Border 1 Brackets set. Attach to the top and bottom edges of the Ice Silver.
4. Stamp 'EspeciallyforYou' on white cardstock, using Cyan ink from the Surf's Up Queue. Cut and emboss with Labels Nineteen Spellbinders cutting dies. Add pink chalk. Layer onto a piece of Malibu Glitter cardstock cut and embossed with the same die. Layer on the piece created in steps 2 and 3.
