Peace on Earth with Dreamweaver

This week, the Stampendous team is "Playing with Paste." Embossing Paste that is! When working with stencils, embossing paste is a basic supply that is easy to work with, and you can do so many cool things with. Today, I am sharing a lovely holiday card that uses the Peace on Earth stencil, and lots of glitter. 


Instructions:

I started off with navy blue cardstock and taped the Peace on Earth stencil to it. I applied Pearlescent Embossing Paste using her paste spreader and immediately sprinkled the Multi Crystal Glitter Mix (from the White Encrusted Jewel Kit) to the paste. I then let that layer dry.

Once dry, I cut the navy cardstock down and rounded the corners. I then cut out a mat of white cardstock and rounded those corners as well. Next, I used her Versamark Watermark ink pad to "wet" the edges of the white cardstock, and applied Crystal Embossing Powder around the perimeter. I next heat set the powder and adhered it to the top layer using foam dots.

To make the card base, I cut cobalt blue cardstock to 10" x 6 1/2" and folded it in half. I applied Texture Gems by Faber-Castell around the entire perimeter, about 1/4" in from the edge and then sprinkled Shaved Ice on top. With each layer, my glitter gets larger in size, which lends a pretty cool effect. Lots of great sparkle and texture!

Once the card base dried, the other layers were adhered to it.
