To create today’s cards, I started by creating my own embossing glittery paste mixing Ranger Textured Transparent Clear Gloss Paste, and Your Carriage Awaits Embossing Glitter. Once, the mixing paste the consistency texture that I wanted I adhered the Bouquet of Roses Stencil on top of a white card stock panel, and I carefully applied the paste on top of the stencil making sure to evenly distribute the paste. As, soon as I finished distributing the paste, I carefully removed the stencil, and I cleaned it up. Then, I set the card panel aside to let the paste dry, in the meantime because I had so much paste left, I repeated the same step to create a second card panel. However, this time I used the Mesh Stencil which you’ll see in the next example down below.
Once, the first card panel was dry I wrapped a few times metallic rose gold thread which I finished it off with a bow in the middle as you can see in the picture above. Then, I adhered the card panel with foam mounting tape to an A2 size side folding white card base. Finally, I used one the dies from the Classic Words Dies Set to die-cut out of white card stock 2X the top layer, and vellum to die-cut the shadow layer for the card sentiment.
For the second card as I mentioned earlier I used the card panel that I previously embossed with the leftover paste from the previous example. So, for this card I started by heat embossing on of the images from the Home Sweet Home Stamp Set with Metallic Platinum Embossing Powder. Right after the heat embossing was melted, I fussy cut the wreath, and I adhered it to the card panel with foam mounting tape. However, before I adhered it, I decided to add the same thread that I used on the previous example as embellishment. Then, I adhered the backing of the card panel to an A2 top folding white card base with foam mounting tape as I wanted to add more dimension to the card. Finally for the sentiment, I used another die to from the same Classic Words Dies Set to die- cut the shadow layer from vellum, and its top layer out of white card stock.
For the last card, I mixed a different paste by mixing once again Ranger Textured Transparent Clear Gloss Paste, and A Girl Best Friend Embossing Glitter. Once the paste was ready to distribute I used the Radiant Stencil which I adhered to a Kraft card panel, and carefully removed it once the paste was evenly distributed. Right after the paste was dry, I adhered the backing of the card panel to an A2 double sided white card base with foam mounting tape. Finally, I used another die from the same set to die-cut the Happy Birthday sentiment, which I adhered it in the center of the card as you can see in the picture above.
To finish the cards off, as usual I adhered some Moonshine Sequins here and there for an extra touch of shine.
So, that’s all for today friends, I hope these cards inspire you to give these designs, and the challenge a try! As, always I appreciate the time you take to read my blog posts.
