Check out this giant textured medallion using Embossing Paste that I created!!! I think this would be super cool on a gift bag or something that could really show the entire thing!
I started with a Lemon Lime Twist card base. Then I took a piece of Melon Mambo (4″ x 5-1/4″) and placed it on some Grid Paper. Using the medallion from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks, I placed it on top and smeared the Embossing Paste all over. There are 3 different styles of Palette Knives to use for smearing the paste on your project. I just pick the one available or my favorite one. I haven’t really found that one is better than another. Once you are done applying the paste, be sure to rinse the items so it doesn’t dry on your tools.
While the image is drying, I worked on the greeting. I used the Layering Circles Framelits in Whisper White and Lemon Lime Twist. This color combination is so beautiful and makes me happy! Next, I stamped the greeting from the Just Add Text Stamp Set in Melon Mambo Ink. After layering the circles together, I added some loops of Copper Metallic Thread to the backside. Simply wrap it around your fingers, slide the loops off and twist in the center creating a figure 8. Place this on the back of the greeting and secure with Stampin’ Dimensionals. That twist is what really makes the loops fan out so nicely.
Now to assemble it all together. I added the Melon Mambo medallion piece to the card base. If you find your cardstock curled a lot, be sure to use a strong adhesive like Tear & Tape or Fast Fuse. Next, I added the greeting with the Stampin’ Dimensionals securing the loops! I love it!
