Here's some cards I made for my husband and Father-in-law for Father's Day. It was painstaking hard!!! You have to be careful with "guy" cards not to make them too feminine. No Bling!!! No Ribbon!!! That's a problem for me!!! lol
I did get to use my new Embossing Paste from Dreamweaver. I love this stuff!!! It's thick and glides over the stencils really well. Be sure to scroll down and check out the close-up. Did I mention this is my first time using both the Embossing paste and the Stencils. It's not perfect but hopefully I will get better with practice.
Details: Dreamweaver's Metallic Gold and Silver Embossing paste.
The Paper Company Black Linen Cardstock (really nice and heavy)
Gold Metallic Paper
Silver Washi Tape
EK Success border punch
Cameo Sketch Pens - Gold & Silver
DCWV Glitzy Glitter Stack (yucky paper, but I have so much , I have to use it)
A closer look
Here's the inside
I cut a separate piece of cardstock about 4 inches high, rounded the corners, decorated and stamped it. I left a 2.5 inch opening in the middle to slide in a gift card.
This is the Embossing paste that I used. You just tape the stencil down on your cardstock and spread with a craft spatula, lift slowly and let it dry. It took about 30 minutes t dry.
Here's the Stencil. There is no name on it, so I can't tell you what it's called.
Close up shot. You can see how it raises up off the cardstock.
Thanks for looking and I hope everyone enjoys Father's Day with their loved ones!!
