French Horn by Louise Healy


  1. Fold a 7" x 10" piece of red cardstock in half to form an A7 card.
  2. Stencil the Holly Flourish image around a 4 3/4" x 6 3/4" piece of cream cardstock using 1/4" stencil brushes and Brilliance inks, use the Picasso tool to keep colors clean.
  3. Attach a piece of sheer gold May Arts Ribbon around the Holly Flourish layer, then attach that layer to the front of the card.
  4. Paste emboss the French Horn stencil on cream cardstock (3 3/8" x 4 1/2") with Gold Embossing Paste using a Palette Knife and Paste Spreader, remove stencil and place in water for cleaning.
  5. While the paste is still wet, cut a straw at an angle and use it to carefully apply Lime Micro Glitter to the pasted holly leaves, and Ruby Red Embossing Powder to the berries, apply only a little at a time to prevent it from getting on the French Horn, don't try to tap off any extra yet, let paste dry.
  6. Tap off any extra glitter and powder, use a heat tool to set the powder, be careful not to heat too long.
  7. Tape the French Horn layer to a red mat (3 1/2" x 4 5/8"), then to the front of the card.
