Embossing Paste Card

Hello there!

I hope you have a good Saturday.

I am sharing a card that I made as an entry to both PTI Make It Monday challenge as well as Taheerah's Cure For The Monday Blues challenge.

For the PTI Make It Monday challenge, we have to use some embossing paste in a card. On the other hand, we have the following inspiration photo for Cure For The Monday Blues challenge.

So here is my card.

I take my inspiration from the pillows and the comforter in the photo.

Using Wendi Vecchi embossing paste and Studio Calico mask, I created the falling star background. I then die cut the "hip hip hooray" phrase using PTI Block Alphabet die set twice. I took the first set of letters and temporarily adhered them on a piece of scrap paper and colored them using a fine paintbrush and various re-inkers and mists. Once the paint is dry, I adhered the letters on the other set of die-cut letters to make the letters thicker. I placed the letters on the grey background.

I then adhered the grey piece on a white base using some dimensional adhesive.

- Studio Calico Mask
- PTI Block Alphabet die set
- Wendi Vecchi embossing paste,
- Wink of Luna Gold

  1. I love to use my embossing paste! I really like your silver stars and the classic layout!

  2. Fantastic way to bring out the colours and texture from the pillows/duvet! Love those embossing paste stars and those awesome bright letters! Thanks so much for playing to find a Cure For The Monday Blues!
