Nuvo Shimmer Powders + 12 Days of Christmas Day 5


Happy 12th Anniversary to Ellen Hutson! This is such a huge milestone in the ever-changing crafting world and I am so excited to celebrate! Over on Instagram (@justinehovey) you will find an instagram hop full of inspirational projects with the theme Warm Fuzzies to celebrate all things Ellen! I thought a warm fuzzy Christmas card would be perfect since I am far from being finished making my Christmas Cards.

I used the Mondo Holly Exclusive Set by Ellen Hutson to create this card. I created the background first on watercolour paper using the Nuvo Shimmer Powders (see video), then I heat embossed the gold on top of the holly. On a separate sheet, I stamped the red background in black ink and trimmed out the berries.

I glued the two pieces together and looked for ways that I could incorporate the black ink and the gold embossing powder into other elements of my card. I started by die cutting the Fine Frames dies by Altenew in Gold Mirror Cardstock, embossing the sentient in gold and adding it to a gold background.

Lastly I added some Nuvo drops to the card to give it that last pop of elegance. I mounted the whole black cardstock panel onto a card base and called it a day!
