Floral Birthday Card with Tinted Embossing Paste Background


I am still playing with embossing paste here. For this background, I mixed a little bit of Almost Amethyst ink into the clear embossing paste before spreading it across the stencil.

I die cut a flower out of green, and used the “petals” for leaves.

Almost Amethyst (retired), VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangles), Provo Craft (flower), stencil – Neat & Tangled, embossing paste – Dreamweaver/Wendy Vecchi/Studio 490 clear, embossing powder – Ranger Silver Pearl.

  1. Works a treat, Kathy! The soft lilac is really pretty. I like how you made the leaves too.

  2. Such simple design, but so pretty at the same time! Great work, I would love to see more ideas from you 🙂
