Doodling with Debby Stencil + Embossing Paste Wedding Card

Hi friends! Thanks for stopping by today, and welcome to the latest edition of Doodling with Debby! Today Debby is making an absolutely gorgeous embossing paste stenciled card! Be sure to watch the video and enjoy!

Debby's DoodlesHi it’s Debby here today and I’m delighted to be joining you with this month’s Doodling With Debby feature. I have a video below creating a quick and easy wedding card using the gorgeous Circular Lace stencil and my favourite embossing paste.

A card I created way back in 2013 inspired this card. I’d seen embossing paste used in mixed media and wanted to try it for card making. At the time there weren’t many stencils and I created a DIY stencil by die cutting card. Now 4 years later we have a wonderful array of stencils available and I’m still very much in love with swiping embossing paste through a stencil as I was then. My favourite embossing paste is the one by Wendy Vecchi. I started using it four years ago and really haven’t felt the need to search for alternatives, as I love this one so much.

Embossing Paste Wedding CardTo start my card I cut a piece of Bazzill Marshmallow card (I like this one as the white of the card is very similar to the white of the embossing paste) and laid the Circular Lace stencil on top. I used a palette knife to sweep embossing paste over the centre of the stencil, lifted the stencil and then dried the paste lightly with a heat tool. With the embossing paste now touch-dry I dabbed on Heidi Swapp Color Shine in gold.

Embossing Paste Wedding CardWhile the panel dried I cut a Wonky Heart from Vellum and a Love die from DCWV gold glitter card. I also cut the embossing paste panel with a Wonky Rectangle. Note – learn from my mistakes and ensure the spray is dry before doing so!

Embossing Paste Wedding CardTo complete the sentiment I stamped the ‘Forever & Always’ from the Floral Bliss set in clear embossing ink on Black card and white heat embossed. I trimmed the sentiment to a skinny strip (see the video for how I like to do this) and then added all the elements with foam adhesive. I mounted the panel to a Marshmallow card base and then accented with gold sequins.

Thanks for joining me today and I’ll see you for next month Doodling With Debby feature.
