This week's challenge started for me with this beautiful Creative Imaginations paper. I really liked it, but thought that it would be difficult to use. The silver foiled patterns reminded me of old fashioned Valentine cards and luxe materials. I was considering which materials would be simple and elegant--and an idea was born--velvet paper and metal!
Although I was concerned that the Dreamweaver paste might not work well on the velvet material, I discovered that I was very wrong. The silver paste worked like a dream! I used the Dreamweaver stencil LM 241, which reads "Happy Valentine's Day." I masked out the additional letters with Scotch removable tape and pasted as usual.
The metal is a Quickutz (Lifestyle Crafts) product. I used it in the Revolution machine with Dreamweaver stencil LM 272, Dangling Heart. It was very easy. I put the stencil down, followed by the metal (face down), a rubber embossing mat and the blue plastic embossing mat. The metal is adhesive backed, so once it was embossed, assembly was a breeze.
