Flourishing Phrases, Friendship Card, Embossing Paste Technique

I am learning to like the Lemon Lime Twist color cardstock. I'm not a big fan of the greens as it is, but the darker they are the more I like them.  The lighter they are the less I like it. Maybe come Halloween this color will grow on me and be used in some fun cards.  

This card was one that I made for the Stamping Extravaganza a couple of weekends ago.  I was demonstrating the new "Embossing Paste" and I played with the "Eastern Medallions" Thinlits Dies.  

First I die cut the larger outer image from scrap cardstock. Then I used colored "Embossing Paste" and filled in the template with that.  I let that dry while I worked on the rest of the card.  I made another template using a smaller image from the "Eastern Medallions".  Once that first outer ring was dry, I used the Lemon Lime Twist ink with some "Embossing Paste" and filled in the smaller template.  I set it aside to dry. You can use your heat tool to speed up drying but remember not to get too close to it or the paste will bubble and blister.  Unless that's the effect you are looking for!!!

The base of this card is a folded half sheet of Whisper White cardstock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Lemon Lime Twist" card stock that was dry embossed using the new "Garden Trellis" folder.  I did emboss first and then cut it to 4" x 5-1/4".  Next I used the new Decorative Ribbon Border punch and a piece of Fresh Fig cardstock. I taped the strip in place on the card.  I used the largest circle die and cut out the "Embossing Paste" image.  I set that in place using Dimensionals.

For the final part of the card, I stamped the "Hello" from the "Flourishing Phrases" set.  I die cut it out with the circle die and behind it is a Fresh Fig scalloped circle.  I set that in place in the center of the medallion using Dimensionals and that was it.  Not one of my favorite cards, I was just showing what you can do with the "Embossing Paste".

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
