Coverplate Stencil Anniversary Wishes

Good Morning! It is freezing here today, so a good day to stay inside and craft. I have a card for the   Papertrey Ink Make It Monday challenge. This week we are asked to use a coverplate die to create a stencil and then to use that stencil and embossing paste on your card - you can see Laurie's video here.



I really didn't have a plan when I started this card. I made a couple attempts with dyed paste that I wasn't happy with then I decided to try adding glitter to my embossing paste (I actually used modelling paste - don't know if there is much difference between the two). I added fine gold glitter first and quickly realized I wouldn't get much sparkle with it, so I added some coarse gold glitter as well and am quite happy with the result. I needed a 50th Anniversary card, so this turned out perfectly. It's hard to see in the picture, but the glitter does sparkle in real life.






Supplies:
Stamps - Wet Paint (PTI)
Coverplate - Vertical Chevron (PTI)
Paper - Stampers Select White CS (PTI), Gold Foil CS (DCWV), Vellum
Ink - VersaMark, Balck EP, modeling paste
Other - fine and coarse gold glitter, gold thread
