Gilded Falalala with Holly

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a quick and simple Christmas card featuring two of the new dies released by Quietfire Design and two of the new gilding powders.  These gilding powders come in six colours and are a lovely fine embossing powder.

I die cut the Falalala and the flourished holly leaves and berries out of inexpensive white cardstock.  (Frugal tip:   I go through so much cardstock, I buy the large packages of 8.5x11 110 lb cardstock at Staples. You get 250 sheets for $21.99 CAD, so it works out to about 9 cents a sheet).  I coated the die cuts with Versamark embossing ink before sprinkling with the gilding powders and heating to melt.  I did this twice to get a nice smooth coat.

The 'berries' in the holly are some Robin's Nest dew drops I had laying around.  Beads, sequins or even a dab of glitter glue would also work to accent the berries.  Add adhere the diecuts to the cardstock base and layer it up as desired with silver paper or dry embossed white cardstock. That's it - all you need are dies, cardstock and gilding powder.  Have fun!
