Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Beautiful Backgrounds

Hi Everybody,

Todays card was shown in the video that I added last week using stencils that are available from Craft Stash

I really loved this little card once it was finished and it was very quick and easy to do.

The longest part was waiting for the embossing paste to dry ... and I left that overnight to make sure it was really dry.

I mixed Dusty Concord Distress Ink with my paste and added it to the card than dressed it up with my usual Flowers,  Ribbons and Pearls

The flowers and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts  and the ribbon is from Mei Flower

All the layers are raised up with foam pads and that gives depth and interest to the card.

It is much prettier in the hand that the photo shows ... hope you like it

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  11. Hi, Christina,
    It certainly is a beautiful background. I love the colour you've achieved with the distress ink mixed in with the texture paste. I really want to give this a try as I'm useless with stencils and texture...maybe one day I'll get something that kind vaguely resembles the wonderful cards you create.
