Embossing Paste Tree


I made this card for My Father-in-Law, Roger's recent birthday.  I used Dreamweaver stencils for both the tree and the sentiment.  The embossing paste is Dreamweaver Gold but then I sprinkled it with various autumnal shades of Perfect Pearls then heated it up with a heat gun - its gives a lovely texture.  The background is embossed with a new Anna Griffin Chicken Wire embossing folder - I think it is going to be one of my favourites!  I hope you all have a lovely weekend.  I will be visiting you all over the next day or two.  Thank you so much for visiting me.  Enjoy the lovely weather (if you are lucky enough to have it) and take care.  Christine xx

What a beautiful card, Chris. The embossing paste through the stencil looks so effective with the Perfect Pearls. I can also see why you like that Anna Griffin embossing folder. I bet your father-in-law will love it. Jx

Wow, Chris, your stencilling is so precise and dimensional ... the different shades of Perfect Pearls over the top gives it so much texture! Anita :)
