Anyway, onto my card...with one of the new items I purchased at the stamp store. I used a stencil to create the leaves and sentiment.
Red glitter backround paper: The Paper Studio
Gold background paper: Paper company
Stencil: Dreamweaver. "greetings"
Dreamweaver Metallic Gold Embossing Paste
The stencil needs to be taped on all sides. Don't be stingy. Cover all sides with the tape. I also used a palette knife to spread the embossing paste over the entire stencil. It took until the 3rd try for me to get it right. The first two I either didn't use enough, or my technique wasn't right. I think I found a video on you tube and watched a few to get it right. After spreading the paste, I used a paste spreader to remove the excess paste. Removed the stencil and than sprinkled gold glitter over the embossing paste and let dry.
Thanks for visiting!
