Hugs & Kisses!

Second post for today! Here is my first post.
Sharing another card I made using stencils and embossing paste. I loved Debby Hughes video and more so the layout of her cards. So I tried the off-center cluster layout.
Hugs & Kisses
I don’t own many stencils so I used MFT’s Damask stencil once again on my card. I first sprayed Seafoam Mr. Huey then clear shine spattered on the card front before I used the gold embossing paste on the damask stencil. I masked off all the damask except one. This makes it easier to apply the paste into the desired area. While the paste dried, I die cut couple flourishes and a small doilie die all from MFT. Also white heat embossed the sentiment on the black card stock and trimmed it. I am impatient, so I went ahead and dried the paste using the heat gun. Then I glued in the flourishes and doilie then foam mounted the sentiment strip. Finally accented with enamel dots and sequins. I was not sure about the card then. But when I photographed it and saw it on the laptop screen, I liked it 🙂

Such a cool layout and love the texture of the gold damask.

Now I am going to cook my cuttlebug plate to remove the marks and make it flat.
 Fingers crossed it turns out good.

Thanks for stopping by!
