We are challenged to use embossing paste on our cards.
If you aren't familiar with what embossing paste is, do a search. I actually had a jar of this that I bought a long time ago. I was more shocked that it wasn't dried-up.
Originally, the stencil that I used was an entire present. But I was having trouble fitting it onto a card that I liked. So, I cut off the bow.
The paper is From K& Company-Sweet Nectar, The Doily Die-Papertrey Ink, The leaves and Sunset Alphabet-Sizzix.
Have a great day!
