VIDEO: Christmas Cards with Embossing Paste

Have you been watching my 12 Days of Christmas video series? I have been sharing a new project every day from December 1-12. See the video archive.

Earlier this week, I featured Embossing Paste. I have to admit that I had never completed a card using embossing paste, so it was a little bit of a challenge for me! And I learned a lot! Here are the cards that I made.

For the first card, I used the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks to create a background with the embossing paste. I added a colored image from the Gnome for the Holidays stamp set.

Embossing Paste is also a fun way to add "snow" texture to a winter-themed card like this In the Pines card that I created. I add the embossing paste to the tree die cut as well as the die cut snowhill. Allow the embossing paste to dry completely before you assemble the card.Stampin' Up!

Watch the replay to see how I made these cards.

Here are some more tips from viewers: 
  • My embossing paste was definitely thicker than it should have been. In hindsight, I would add more water! The consistency should be creamy.
  • Keep the foil cover intact (don't remove it) and use it to re-seal the package when you're done.

Use a piece of saran wrap across the top of embossing container before you put on lid, that helps to keep it fresher for a longer time.
