More "Holly-Day" glitz with this charming holly stamp from Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Trinkets. I have gotten so much use out of this little set. Remember the magnets?
I inked each holly leaf in VersaMark, stamped on Sage Shadow card stock, then heat embossed in gold. Red berries came to life using a 1/4" Circle Punch and Riding Hood Red card stock. Very vavoom. Both circles were cropped using Nestabilities Circles and a Big Shot Die-Cut Machine.
The circle is adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals to a horizontal panel of Always Artichoke Textured card stock. I added three jubilant musicians and a sentiment from Stampin' Up!'s Old St. Nick Rub-Ons.
Tucked behind is a Brushed Gold (Stampin' Up! card stock) Top Note Bigz Die Cut. I layered it on Whisper White that had been stamped using the Bella Toile Background stamp (inked up in Sage Shadow). A layer of Riding Hood Red and card base of Always Artichoke (4.25 x 5.5, scored at the top), finishes things off. I used a neat sketch from Jen Del Muro for inspiration.
For this week's Ways to Use Challenge (WT195, envelopes), I used the Bella Toile Background stamp (Sage Shadow) to turn it from plain white to custom coordinated. TIP: For your convenience, all Splitcoast Daily Challenges are available on my left side bar.
Do you have your holiday cards done? I still have quite a few to go . . . however, I plan to do some mass production this weekend.
