Good morning Saturday. WOW – big temperature drop. It’s actually cool here. Tuesday it was 104; today we waken to 60! Big, big difference. Perhaps I can actually do some work outside today :O) My card… speaks of Christmas. It mostly uses Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper and a bit of stamping using the Leaves of Holly stamp set. My card tomorrow shows off that stamp & die bundle.
Cards look so different in a photo… I started with a card base of Soft Succulent, then a layer of Evening Evergreen and Basic White – all adhered together. The next layer is all on dimensionals.
- top left: Soft Succulent layered with Boughs of Holly DSO then a Textured Element adhered directly. I used the Pearlized Enamel Effects on each of the tips of this element for a bit of added sparkle.
- top right: Soft Succulent base, clean with Embossing buddy to remove any static, stamp the two sentiments from Leaves of Holly stamp set in VersaMark, sprinkle with White Embossing Powder and heat set with the SU! Heat Tool. Once this has cooled, stamp the holly leaf in second generation Soft Succulent ink. Dot with Pearlized Enamel Effects.

- bottom right: Soft Succulent base with holly leaf stamped in second generation Soft Succulent ink then dotted with Pearlized Enamel Effects.
Spacing is especially important in this kind of project so lay them out before attaching! The most difficult part for me on a project like this, is determining the sizes of the front layer. Once I do that, the rest is easy!!
This holly leaf from the Leaves of Holly stamp set are just beautiful! I stamped them in second generation Soft Succulent ink then stamped the sentiment (yep, Leaves of Holly stamp set) in full strength Soft Succulent on a Basic White piece. This I adhered to Evening Evergreen then attached it to the inside of the card.
More of the same pattern of Boughs of Holly DSP on the envelope flap, then second generation Soft Succulent ink stamped holly leaf from Leaves of Holly stamp set. Love the colors in this. The stamp bundle, Designer Series Paper, Pearlized Enamel Effects and the Textured Element may all be found in the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog. You’ll see more of these in tomorrows post – hint, hint.
