Garden Fronds

 The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.
~Isaiah 58:11

Hello friends! Today I am sharing a card that I designed for the Classy Cards N Such Store. It was inspired by our challenge this week which is to use a stencil on your card. I sure hope you will play along with us.





I started my card with a pre-made Kraft card base from Recollections. I cut a piece of white cardstock that was 1/4 inch smaller on all sides than the base. Using a low tack tape I secured the Memory Box Garden Fronds stencil to the white cardstock. Using the Dreamweaver's Paste Spreader, I scooped out some Translucent Embossing Paste and spread it over the stencil. Using the edge of the spreader, I smoothed the paste down and removed any excess and put it back into the jar.

Now, it's time for the fun to begin! I removed all the tape and slowly lifted up the stencil. I saw a lovely white paste imprint of the Garden Fronds. Next, using some chunky glitter I had in my stash from Stampin' Up!®, I covered the white paste with glitter. Once I was certain I had all the paste covered, I turned the cardstock over and tapped off the excess. Oh how pretty the reveal was!

Once I was certain the glitter and paste were set, I distressed the edges of the white cardstock and then inked them withVersaMagic chalk ink. In the bottom right corner, I stamped a little sentiment. One that is perfect to brighten anyone's day.

Sentiment from Verve Stamps: Small Phrases
