This card came together a bit organically. I realize as I look at the picture it has lots of layers, but that's because I kept adding to it. It didn't seem to pop enough so I added a layer of Copper Foil to the base and also across the card. I really like the finished product.
The Embossing Paste made me "squeal" when I saw it. I love mixed media and textures and have always hoped there would be a way to combine it on my cards. It was so easy to add some texture with the paste. You do have to let it dry, but mine dried quite quickly so by the time I was finished with the card I could assemble. One tip I found is that you should make your embossed piece larger than you want it and then cut it down to make the edges a little cleaner.
Did you notice the Copper Trim? It comes as 1/4" but you can pull the edges apart and spread it to 1" or more. I love this trim and know it's going to become one of my staples. You can tie a lovely bow with it or use it to add some interest to a card like I did on this one.
