Happy Holly Days

>> Tuesday, November 22, 2016

Hi Everyone,

After a very mild fall in my part of the country, winter really came roaring in this weekend.  I definitely feel in the mood to show off some of the Christmas themed cards I've been working on.

I colored up the Holly Jingle Bells stamp, die cut it and matted it using my oval dies.  I added a dab of glitter glue to the berries and set it aside to dry while I began on stamping my background papers.  I always find it so satisfying to make custom, perfectly matched papers for a special project.

For the base background I used Easy Dot Background, stamping in dark red and green ink and then stamping on top of that using the Splatter Background in a yellow.  I then took those same ink colors and made a piece of plaid using the Woven Plaid Background stamp and added a punched border to it.


I wrapped my background paper with a piece of matching ribbon, adding a button from my neglected button stash.  I then topped it with the plaid piece and adhered the image with dimensional tape.

I chose the new Holly Days Christmas Greeting and added that at an angle to finish off the card.

Thanks so much for looking!
Karin
