I always like to take a paper collection and try and use it for themes that are different than what it is intended.  The floral prints of the Rustic Elegance line by Carta Bella and the pretty, soft feminine colors made me think of my sweet little girl and this photo of her.

I wanted to add some sparkle and shine on the background with some gold DecoFoil™.  I love how the texture of the paper shows through.

Here’s how to recreate this look:

Place your stencil in the desired spot on your background paper.

Apply some of the DecoFoil™ liquid glue to a cometic sponge or other type of dauber.  Generously dab the liquid adhesive through the stencil and onto your background paper.  Try to get an even distribution of adhesive. Remove your stencil and wash immediately.

Let the glue dry for 30 minutes to an hour depending on the thickness of your glue.

Place a sheet of gold DecoFoil™ Transfer Sheet over the adhesive areas and rub with a hard edge, like a credit card.  Remove the foil sheets and enjoy!

I also used some 3D White Foam Squares to pop up my flower and heart garland.

    Loved the embossing on wedding card will try it if I can find heat bonding. I have never seen it in my craft stores.
