{Paper Smooches} Congratulations, Retro Arrow & Stars Dies with Inlaid Embossing Paste + Video!

Kim shared this card on the Paper Smooches blog this week. It features the new Congratulations Word Die on a dual-colour Retro Arrow Die with pearlescent embossing paste inlay.

I die cut the Retro Arrow Die to use as a stencil for the embossing paste. Once that was dry, I adhered the lipstick and sunshine panels on top. Then I die cut the Congratulations Word Die from dark chocolate cardstock and Stars Dies from glimmer cardstock, adhering them to the card with liquid adhesive.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I love how this card just pops with colour! The different levels of shimmer with the embossing paste and glimmer cardstock add a lot to the fun design, too. This is great!

A light bulb went on in my head when I saw how you lined up the 'Congratulations'. That really is a great crafting idea. I will definitely take another look at my dies to see what I can do with the negative die cut spaces. Thanks for adding to the grateful that I found your blog site.
