For my card I used a pieced of sticker paper, but all of the adhesives listed above can be used since they can all handle the heat of embossing. I remove the top protective layer and laid the lace on top of it. Then I used the protective layer to help press down the lace firmly. I covered the whole piece with Cayenne Star EP, tapped off the excess, and gently removed the lace. I heat set the embossing powder and when it had cooled I covered the entire sheet with Tuscan Sun EP. Once again I shook off the excess and heat set. I do like to use the protective layer to press the EP’s into the sticker paper each time to help it stick real good. You can do this same technique with glitters or even a combination of EP’s and glitters. Head over to SNS’s Tips and Techniques section to read more on this technique here and here.
The sentiment on this card is Single Flower, embossed with Cayenne Star EP in the center of the Flourish Oval Frame. I added a single Swirl Butterfly and some black pearl swirls for embellishment. You can go here in my gallery to get full details on how to make this card.
