I love a textured card, and especially one with texture that shimmers! I will share the steps to create your own textured card! I began by selecting a patterned paper from Honey Bee Stamps Marvelous Moments 6×8.5 Paper Pad. I chose this pattern because it looks like linen, and its a nice neutral color. I placed my card panel onto my Brutus Monroe Stick and Stamp Mat, and used highlighter Tape told the stencil in place.
Next, I scraped translucent Distress Grit-Paste over the stencil and then poured gold embossing powder over the entire thing. Do not remove the stencil before adding the embossing powder. I do this to avoid having to use anti-static powder. Once the paste is fully coated with powder, carefully remove the stencil, and use a heat gun to set the paste and powder. The embossing paste will bubble as it heats up.
Next, I chose the sentiment “Thinking of You” from the Honey Bee Stamps Fall Foliage Frame Stamp set and stamped it in “Icing on the Cake” Catherine Pooler ink, and I used the coordinating Fall Foliage Frame Die Cuts to cut the sentiment.
