Happiest of Days

A week or so ago I decided to do something that I've wanted done since I was a teen.  Here's the story: I have two baby teeth which is apparently not all that uncommon. Well, these baby teeth are large, thus crowding the teeth in my lower jaw.  So, I had those two teeth removed yesterday, and as it turns out, I am a BIG BABY!  I wanted attention, someone to take care of me, bring me homemade applesauce I made the day before and blankets and, and and..  See - big baby.  But, that was yesterday.  Today I'm almost back to being my usual self.  By the way, the story doesn't end here.  In a few weeks I'll be sporting braces.  Not the train-track kind, they'll be invisible.

Enough about my teeth, and on to today's card!  I've been having so much fun playing with the new Embossing Paste from Stampin' Up! Creating cool textured backgrounds is a snap!  You'll soon be seeing more cards I've made using the Embossing Paste. 

This 'diamond' pattern was achieved using one of the Pattern Party Decorative Masks.  I used Washi Tape to hold down the cardstock and mask, then applied the Embossing Paste using SU's Palette Knives.  How easy is that!!

Isn't this font lovely!  The stamp is from the Happiest of Days set <--gorgeous stamp set!!
 Once I stamped the sentiment, I die cut it using my Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I had previously die cut flowers from the Support Ribbon Framelits Dies, and on a whim, placed them behind the die cut sentiment.  Pretty darn tootin' cute! 

A close up of the texture.   What's also great about this is if you don't yet have a Big Shot, adding Embossing Paste to the card will give your cards pizzazz!
