A Beautiful, Pasted, Christmas!

I don't often post projects made with paste, but today I am posting two.  This one has the more traditional approach to pasting.  The other is on Paper Craft Planet here.
This card actually has a couple of different techniques.
The Holly Sprig in the background is Holly Fourish Stencil LG 731.  I simply ran the cardstock through my Cuttlebug after spritzing it with a little rubbing alcohol.  The Sandwich is A Plate, upside down stencil, face down cardstock, Stamping Details Embossing Mat, and two B Plates.  Then, berfore I removed the stencil, I brushed it with a little Distress Ink, using two different colors .  I highlighted the berries with a little Stickles. 
The word is the Christmas Script Stencil LL 3009.  I taped the stencil over brown cardstock onto my craft sheet with removable tape.  Then, I used my paste spreader to "pull" the Metallic Gold Embossing Paste over the whole thing.  I removed the stencil and let it dry.  Then, I added red Stickles to the berries.  After everything was dry, I cut around it and assembled the card. 
For a completely different approach to using Gold Metallic Embossing Paste, check out the Molten Magic Tutorial on Paper Craft Planet.
