The Mixed Media Card Challenge #30 Reminder – December – Gold

Challenge Badge

Hi! I’m here with a reminder post & card for The Mixed Media Card Challenge for December:

Here’s my card:  img_3752_edited-1


I started by making a homemade stencil with a star die.


 Then I stenciled gold embossing paste onto the smooshed background panel.


I had used a variety of paints, some Smooch Spritz, some gold embossing paste to create the smooshed background. After the gold stars dried. img_3756_edited-1I fussy-cut some of the stars and attached the panel onto red cardstock. I embossed the panel with a chevron embossing panel.

As you can see, I designed, and then printed, my own digital sentiments on vellum. img_3751_edited-1

I included a PDF of the sentiments for you to use. Please click here or on the image below to be taken to the printable version.

slide1I fussy cut the sentiment and added gold gel pen.


I attached the sentiments and then added the panel to a gray card.
