Happy Birthday

Hi Bloggers.

An easy peasy card today as long as you're patient!

The background is some Warm Gold Sparkle Texture Paste through the Lattice Mask. Once dry, I inked around the edges with Scattered Straw Distress Ink.

I stamped the frame from the Mini Scrollwork Frames Set onto Coconut White Card using Perfect Medium and added Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I stamped the sentiment from the All Occasions Stamp Set using Perfect Medium, added Gold Detail Powder and embossed the lot. I cut it out using Spellbinders Classic Squares Small and inked through the die with Scattered Straw. I cut a Spellbinders Captivating Squares Die out of Custard Card, inked through the die with Scattered Straw and then rubbed Enchanted Gold Gilding Wax over the surface.

I cut a couple of leaves out of Custard Card using Sue's Curled Vines Die Set and rubbed Enchanted Gold Giding Wax over the surface. I made a couple of flowers out of White Crochet Ribbon.

I assembled the card as shown adding a White Pearl to each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Cosmic Pearl PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  13. Morning Julia,
    Never used textured paste myself but I do like the results, so perhaps in the new year I will invest in some.

  14. Morning Julia
    Must say texture paste is a must try technique for all the bloggers who have not tried. Be patient and it gives a gorgeous effect just like on this beautiful card. Put mica in with the white or sparkly pastes to get fantastic.colours.
    It's a bit messy but it's fun!
    Thank you Julia.

  21. Glitter paste through a stencil means you don't have to do much more to a card to get something nice - it is waiting for it to dry is the problem!

  22. Hi Julia, A beautiful card, at first glance I thought it was glitter card showing through a die-cut background card, this texture paste is truly stunning, I love it !!
    I got my gilding wax out yesterday and it had dried up, is there any way of 'softening' it ?
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
