Have a dazzling birthday

One of the first products I bought from the new Stampin' Up! annual catalogue was the new Embossing Paste.  I've previously used other brands of paste and was looking forward to trying the Stampin' Up! paste on this card.

To create this card I started with a Stampin' Up! Bermuda Bay card base and added a layer of Berry Burst card stock on top.

Taking a piece of Whisper White I then had some fun with the Embossing Paste.  Using the diamond mask from the Patterned Party Decorative Masks set, I applied the Embossing Paste over the Whisper White card stock. This paste is so smooth and easy to use.  It also dries fast - you don't have to wait long to continue making your project but do drop your palette knife and mask into water as soon as you've finished using them so it doesn't dry on your tools. Before the paste dried, I sprinkled some Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter over the paste to give it extra shine.  Unfortunately the photo doesn't show how much this sparkles in real life.  I applied this Whisper White card stock piece onto the card base.

To create the focal cluster I diecut the flower from the May Flowers Framelits set and berry sprigs from the Flourish Thinlits set.  I then stamped the birthday sentiment from the Birthday Banners stamp set and built the cluster.  A Bitty Bow completed the card.

Here's a close up of the card.
