Embossing Paste Anniversary

Here's a card "letting the paper do the talking." :)

I was looking through my brass stencils one day last week, and came across this Happy Anniversary one. It had been a while again since I'd used embossing paste, so I decided to get it out again. For this card I used white glossy embossing paste. The stencil is from Dream Weaver. I scored two lines on the top and two on the bottom using my Scor-Buddy, matted with white and mounted on foam squares. Then I didn't know what to do with it! It was kind of big. I looked through my neglected patterned paper and found this piece from Die Cuts With a View Cafe Mediterranean matstack which coordinated very well with my sentiment and finished up the card very simply.

I had such a nice time yesterday. An "on-line" friend came over to stamp. So awesome! It was fun exchanging ideas and techniques. Hope we can do that again! Hi, Deb! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Only someone who has worked with embossing paste will recognize what a good job that you did with this piece. I love the addition of the DP, a perfect choice!

Isn't it just the best when you can play with online friends IRL?! Lucky you!! Your Anniversary card is fantastic, Lynnette! I love the simple design where you showcased the sediment and the beautiful patterned paper! Enjoy the weekend!! Hugs, Darnell

Thanks, Lynette, for a great day of fun and stamping. I learned so much about stamping and even more about how much we have in common! Love the embossing paste technique!
