When the Occasions catalog came out, I HAD to have the Shimmery White Embossing Paste. Have you seen all of the cards and projects I made using it? NO, neither have I. Somehow, it got a little lost and I forgot about it. I rediscovered it yesterday and am so happy that I did. Something different was called for in making a card for this week’s Global Design Project challenge.

Design Notes for Shimmery White Embossing Paste Card:

Can you see the elements of the inspiration card that I used? The shape appealed to me. I really just cut down a standard A2 card. The card base for my sample measures 3 1/2″ x 11″ and is scored at 5 1/2″ . I also centered my design on the right side and left some open space on the left side.

I pulled out the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and used the Shimmery Paste. The paste really does shimmer! Next, I wanted to add some more shimmer and shine so I looped some Silver Baker’s Twine behind the sentiment. Finally, I added a few Glitter Enamel Dots over on the left. I debated with myself about stamping the sentiment in Basic Black or adding just a hint of color. Cherry Cobbler won the debate.
