Sandy Beaches with Embossing Paste and an Adirondack Chair

Sandy Beaches with Embossing Paste and an Adirondack Chair

I am having SO much fun this week playing around with Embossing Paste. Today’s card is no different and it is super simple to recreate!

Here’s How I created my beach scene:

I started with a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and my embossing paste. I just grabbed a little paste and added one drop of Soft Suede reinker to the paste and using my palette knife I mixed it all together thoroughly. I then took my fingers and make a streak on my scrap paper. I patted it and played with it so it would dry looking like sand. It worked perfectly! After I was satisfied with my results I let it dry completely. (about an hour!)

While I was letting my “sand” dry I die cut out an Adirondack Chair in Real Red and a little lemonade in Daffodil Delight. They both come from the die set: Seasonal Layers.

I also took a piece of So Saffron cardstock measuring 5″ x 3.75″ and ran it through my die cutting machine with our Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

I wrapped several pieces of Real Red Baker’s Twine around the So Saffron mat and attached it at an angle onto my Crumb Cake card base with snail.

Last but not least, I attached a sentiment from Good Morning Magnolia, “enjoy today” that I stamped in Real Red and cut out with the Rectangle Stitched Dies. By then, the sand was good and dry and I assembled the rest of the card.

Still unsure how to use Embossing Paste successfully? Check out this video here, for more information!

What a fun project! It will mail perfectly and without extra postage. That is always a plus.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you come back soon!
