HIGHLAND CHRISTMAS Ephemera pack CO726286 (one tag)

1. Create a base background with the HIGHLAND CHRISTMAS paper CO726279 (reversed side)using the  C'est la vie - background stencil - spread embossing paste over the stencil -randomly in the centre and a little on the side of the paper.

2. Heat dry the embossing paste with heat gun, once dry and still warm, cut a piece of red activated foil and gently rub over the embossed paste design with your finger. The foil will rub off onto the embossed paste.

3. Cut the bottom and top of the design from the  HIGHLAND CHRISTMAS  paper CO726282, distress the edges with the sanding block.

4. Cut four more strips from the reverse side of the  HIGHLAND CHRISTMAS  paper CO726282, distress edges with sand block. Adhere these strips along the top and bottom of the page, as shown in the photo.

5. Matt your photograph with 3 different papers from the paper pad - creating a framed border around the photograph. Photograph measuring 7.5cm x 10cm. Adhere matted photograph in the centre of the page, on a slight angle.
Spread some cheesecloth around the bottom of photo, secure it with glue.

6. Cut 8/9 holly leaves from the HIGHLAND CHRISTMAS  paper CO726285, Adhere around the photograph as shown above with foam tape.
Attach assorted red flowers.

7. Apply dots of Couture Creations Rouge Liquid 3D drops on the holly leaves, leave to dry.

8. Adhere one Tag from the HIGHLAND CHRISTMAS ephemera pack.

9. Dab a little White gesso over the red flowers to soften the appearance of them. Adhere randomly gemstones around the top and bottom of the layout.
