The Joyful Holly stamp set is a lovely stamp set for holiday cards. For this card I used Garden Green card stock cut at 5-1/2 X 8-1/2 and scored at 4-1/4. I cut a liner out of Whisper White card stock measuring 4 X 5-1/4. For the card front I used a 4 X 4 piece of Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper and a 2 X 4 piece of ‘Tis The Season Designer Series Paper. I adhered these pieces to the front of the card with a piece of Real Red Sheer Ribbon as shown below.
I cut an oval of Whisper White card stock using the Layering Oval die set. I cut a scalloped oval out of Garden Green card stock to use as a mat. I stamped the holly leaves on the white oval using from the Joyful Holly stamp set and Garden Green ink. I stamped the holly berries using Real Red ink. I colored and shaded the holly leaves using a Blender Pen. (You could stamp them). I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink.
Adhere the white oval to the Garden Green oval. Adhere the ovals to the card front using dimensionals to add height. Slip a piece of Real Red Sheer Ribbon under the Ribbon on the card front. Tie a single knot in the ribbon and trim as desired. Add Red Rhinestones if desired. Adhere the card liner to the inside of the card. Decorate the envelope as desired.
Tips and Tricks: Plan your oval carefully so you have room to stamp the sentiment.
