One more sample

Here is one more sample using the Holly Flourish (LG731) and the Christmas (LL3009) stencils. A completely different look than the distress card I showed the other day. For this look, start with paste embossing the Christmas stencil with green glossy paste (make your own by adding green acrylic paint from a tube to the Translucent Paste). Let the paste dry, then place the clean stencil back over the green paste and apply Stamp and Stick to the paste with a finger dabber. Remove the stencil and let the glue get tacky for a couple of minutes. Place gold leafing over the glue and pounce it down with a 3/4" stencil brush. Brush away extra leafing and save it to a container for another project. Edge with gold Krylon pen. Dry emboss the Holly Flourish on smooth cardstock and deckle the bottom edge. Edge with gold Krylon pen. Layer the holly layer onto a dark green card. Layer the Christmas image on a matching piece of dark green cardstock and adhere to the holly layer for a much more "traditional" look.

Happy Creating,
