SSS September Card Kit - Scratch Here!

Good morning! I'm super excited today to share a card using the brand new September Card Kit of the Month from Simon Says Stamp - It's a Birthday Surprise!

I had fun using the contents of the kit and some distress ink blending for this card: 

Wonder what's under the scratch off part? I took one of the scratch off stickers, put it on a scrap of acetate, then scratched it off so I could lay it over the card and take a photo, before attaching the ACTUAL scratch off sticker over the word! So I can take the photos and you can see what it looks like - but I can still leave the card intact to give WITH the scratch off portion!

I first stamped the circle, and top and bottom sentiment with clear embossing ink, then stamped the black portions with black pigment ink - THEN sprinkled on clear embossing powder and heat set everything. That way I could add the blended ink and reveal the images underneath - isn't it fun?

I love the possibilities with this kit! SOOOO fun!
