Glittering Holly

Hi there!

For my second card today, I wanted to play with some new Nuvo glitter paste that I bought with Christmas in mind. Can’t believe that I didn’t get round to playing with it until a week before Christmas!

Anyway, I chose the sketch from the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge and used a stencil fromEcho Park Paper Company. Lots of masking with this as I masked off the berries when I did the leaves and vice versa. Totally worth it for the effect!

Unfortunately, when I ran this through my Big Shot, it flattened/dulled the red berries a little – I think the paste may have still been a little damp, althought it felt quite dry to me. Anyway, I popped a little bit of red Nuvo drops on top of each of the berries to make them glisten again! I actually really like the effect, although it did take quite a while to dry!

I added a couple of strips of patterned paper and a die cut from Concord and 9th to finish it off!

Thanks for stopping by!
