Hi there, just a quick post of a thank you card I recently made using a technique I saw on YouTube...
The video is by Jennifer McGuire (sorry, I looked for it again but couldn't find it to share the link) and she uses a stencil, texture paste and embossing powder to create a really cool embossed image for a card front. So, following Jennifer's instructions, this is what I did:
I used the 12' x 12' Damask stencil by Kaisercraft and placed it over a piece of plain white cardstock. First I applied texture paste over the stencil and then carefully removed the stencil whilst the paste was still wet. Then I covered the wet paste with Stampendous Kaleidoscope embossing powder and set it aside to dry for a few hours. Once dry, I heat set the embossing powder with my heating tool.
I stamped the sentiment and added a thin strip of red cardstock with a few Kaisercraft pearls before adhering it to the card base.
The raised areas stand out so much and it looks really cool - especially with the Kaleidoscope embossing powder. I think I'm in love with this technique and hope you like it too. I just know I'll be using it quite often in the future.
Thanks for stopping by!
