Lift Me Up Birthday Card using Embossing Paste

StampinByHannah Lift Me Up Birthday Card using Embossing Paste


I LOVE a bit of embossing paste as much as the next person, but I do have to admit that my pot has been a little (by this I mean a LOT) neglected over recent months…. to the point where when I opened it I thought it has completely dried out… and after I made this card I decided that it had got to the end of it’s life and that it needed to go! However… I will be re-purchasing because the effects you can create with it are fabulous!

So, using my rather dry Stampin’ Up! Embossing Paste, and the cloud mask from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks, did allow me to create some extra texture as the dry paste holds a shape better than when it’s really wet. It also dried a LOT quicker… not that I would recommend using dry embossing paste of course! It’s MUCH easier to spread when it’s fresh… it’s also much easier to clean off your mask and palette knife!

Because the background is so busy, I’ve kept the rest of the card simple, with a die cut balloon and sentiment from Lift Me Up! die cut using the coordinating Up and Away Thinlits.
