New Holly Flourish

This new holly flourish (LG731) from Dreamweaver is so versatile. You saw it in the background of my last post, but it is fabulous as the focal point as well. For this technique, you start by paste embossing the holly flourish with yellow matte embossing paste on white cardstock. Remove and clean the stencil and let the image dry. Place the clean stencil back over the dry paste and use small stencil brushes with pigment inks to add color on top of the yellow paste. Remove the stencil and coat the pigment ink with clear embossing powder. Tap off extra embossing powder and heat set. Layer on red and green mats then onto a 5" x 7" card. Repeat the steps for the Seasons Greeting stencil (LS91) and attach to main card with foam mounting tape. Simple but beautiful.

Happy Creating,

This card is another beautiful example of the holly flourish. What fun seeing different ways to use the same stencil - the possibilities are just endless!
