I have created this background using the new Embossing Paste (#141979) and Palette Knives (#142808), which is another way to add texture to your project. All you do is apply the embossing paste over a Decorative mask, remove the mask and then let it dry - this doesn't take long. You can also colour the white paste with re-inker which I have done with a drop of Crumb Cake Stampin' Ink Refill (#121029).
The base card is Very Vanilla (#106550) and the cardfront is Crumb Cake (#121685). I have used one of the 4 Pattern Party Decorative Masks (#144103) to create the background. Happy Birthday is cut with the Happy Birthday Thinlits (#143700) from Cherry Cobbler card (#121681) and attached with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals (#144108). The boots from Country Livin' stamp set (#c141925, #w141922) are stamped with Soft Suede ink (#126978) on Very Vanilla card. I handcut these and attached them to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).
Till next time,
