Oh So Eclectic Card Embossed Three Ways

Hey peaches! I wanted to share a card with you today that is jam-packed with texture! It's actually a fairly simple card in that there's not a lot to it, but appears to be so much more because of all of the texture. I have used 3 different types of embossing. See if you can spot them all.

Today I'm featuring the Oh So Eclectic Stamp Set and Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies. This set is one of my favs if you couldn't already tell, haha. It's definitely gotten a lot of use!

I began with a piece of Whisper White Cardstock for my first panel. I wanted to create a bright, tropical background with plenty of white space and since I had a lot of leftover colored Embossing Paste that I had saved from my last Technique Tuesday posts (You can find that post here), I wanted to pit it to good use. 

First I needed to create a stencil for my background. I used a piece of Window Sheet and the largest die in the set with all of the diamond shapes. After running the die and Window Sheet through my Big Shot I was left with a stencil. I used my previously colored embossing paste (I used Melon Mambo, Mango Melody, and Pineapple Punch Re-Inkers) to spread over my background, and allowed it to dry. I noticed that I smeared a few areas, but i didn't mind because I think it adds charm to the card.

While it dried, I used a stitched circle and ran it through my Big Shot with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I love adding more than one type of embossing! There are actually 3 types on this card. I used embossing paste, an embossing folder, and embossing powder (for the sentiment). I think that by adding more than one type of embossing, you get so much texture, easily!

To finish off my card, I added the sentiment and a few embellishments. And that's it! See, I told you it was simple! I'm so happy you stopped by my blog today and I'll see you next post!
