I used the ARTploration Christmas Reindeer stencil with transparent texture paste then covered it with gold metal magic and heat embossed once dry.....I love the testured finish you get.  Simply matted and layered with Spellbinder dies. Sentiment from STAMPloration Holiday Artsy set, stamped on vellum and heat embossed. Brads from my stash.
