Card 1 embossing paste

Number 1 in a series of 3 cards using the Artistic Mix Stencils and only three colours, Very Vanilla, Copper Clay and Basic Black, perfect colours for male cards!

Take a piece of copper clay cardstock measuring 13.8 x 9.5 and position in grid paper. Apply a little amount of adhesive to back just to hold in place. Position the first large stencil by masking tape and using your blending brush, blend with Copper Clay. Apply all over this piece of cardstock

Take the matching stencil and align so that the design fits into the sections of the larger stencil.

On your silicone mat take about 1 teaspoon of shimmery white embossing paste and add one drop of memento black ink refil and mix with a palette knife.

Spread the embossing paste over your stencil and ensure a good coverage. When complete wash immediately your palette knife and stencil to remove all embossing paste. Put aside to dry.

Using black cardstock die cut the shadow piece of Happy Birthday from the Wanted to Say dies and then in Copper Clay cardstock.

Apply double sided adhesive sheet to back of some copper clay cardstock and die cut the word Happy Birthday from the Wanted to Say dies and then attach to the shadow die cut.
When embossing paste is dry, attach your happy birthday sentiment with stampin dimensionals.
