Vintage Vogue Tues Trigger Trial

Sometimes I like to use the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger as an excuse to try a new technique.  So, I'm making excuses to neglect the housework today!  One the techniques I have been wanting to try is embossing paste with a template.  I love the look but did not have a template.  And rather than buy a template, I decided to create one with my Cricut!  What a great way to save money and still get a great look!  I used SCAL2 to make a grid of circles and cut them in chipboard with my deep cut blade and housing.  I then used embossing paste and Yellow Art Glitter.  I was trying to get the look of the vintage fabric in Moxies challenge, by embossing on vellum.
The Butterfly is actually an ornament from Michaels, that I glammed up with some dew drops from the Robin's Nest, Creative Charms and some Stickles.  MOM is some old Basic Grey stickers I have had in the stash forever.  The lace paper is Paper Wishes, and a bit of Hobby Lobby.
