I also wanted to do some stenciling with embossing paste in the background. I love my stencils but I mostly use them with ink-blending so I wanted to get out the embossing paste and add a touch of color to it. I filmed the making of this card if you're interested - link down below.
So I colored my embossing paste with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink and then appied it over the Plaid #1 stencil from Carta Bella to a panel of white cardstock cut with a stitched die down one side. Once that was dry, I added the die-cut sentiment and popped the whole panel up on craft foam for some added dimension. No embellishments as this is a masculine card.
All in all, a very quick card (for me!) . You can watch the video over on YouTube or below.
