Succulent Texture Paste Card

Hello everyone today I have a card I created with texture past and reinker. It is very easy to make.

If you want to make this you will need:

Making The Stencil

I firstly began by designing the stencil in design space. I chose the succulent image from the Flower Market Cartridge. I placed one image on my canvas and removed the silhouette backing. I then selected the contour button and hid the outside line of the image. By doing this it stops the whole flower being cut and only the inside petals.

I duplicated the image so I had enough images to form an image I thought would be great for a stencil. I then selected all the succulent images and selected weld. This makes them all one image. I then inserted an square and modified the shape until it was a rectangle and would cover the succulents in a way I wanted. I then selected both the succulent and square image and selected slice. I then deleted the parts I did not want to keep.

If you want to keep the image on a larger sheet then you can cut it as it is. I wanted to keep a smaller piece so I added a larger rectangle and attached the images. If you do not want to do this yourself feel free to use my file in design space Here.

I the used the cricut to cut out the design.

Making the card

On a mat on my table I used a small amount of the texture paste. I added two drops of the reinker to the paste and mixed it through. The more reinker you add to the paste the darker the colour. I then placed the stencil over the card. I then used the palette knife to spread the paste evenly over the stencil. Once it is all covered I lifted the stencil off and let it dry.

I used the thanks from the October SOTM set to stamp thanks on a scrap piece of white cardstock and edged it with the Mint Shimmer brush. Once the paste was dry I then stuck the ribbon down with Liquid glass and used 3D foam tape to stick the word thanks down. I then added a ribbon bow and placed a glitter gem in the centre.

This is a real cute fun technique to try and I hope you all have a try.
