Garden Fronds

Hello, it's Jenn today! I am sharing a card that was inspired by our challenge this week which is to use a stencil on your card.  I sure hope you will play along with us! 

I started my card with a pre-made Kraft card base. I cut a piece of white cardstock that was 1/4 inch smaller on all sides than the base.

Using a low tack tape, I secured the plastic Memory Box Garden Fronds stencil to the white cardstock. Using the Dreamweaver's Paste Spreader, I scooped out some Translucent Embossing Paste and spread it over the stencil. Using the edge of the spreader, I smoothed the paste down and removed any excess and put it back into the jar. 

Now, it's time for the fun to begin!  I removed all the tape and slowly lifted up the stencil.  I saw a lovely white paste imprint of the Garden Fronds.  Using some chunky glitter I had in my stash, I covered the white paste with glitter. Once I was certain I had all the paste covered, I turned the cardstock over and tapped off the excess. Oh how pretty the reveal was! 

Once I was certain the glitter and paste were set, I distressed the edges of the white cardstock and then inked them with chalk ink. 

In the bottom right corner, I stamped a little sentiment, one that is perfect to brighten anyone's day.

Oh how sparkly and gorgeous! Thanks Jenn!
