Holly Branch

Hello, everyone! Jenny here! Today, I would like to share couple of Christmas card I created using our new Holly Branch stamp set. This set is so versatile and it’s so fun to layer stamp like I did on today’s project, or you could just stamp the outline image and color with any coloring medium you’d like!

Let me show you the cards!

First, I created the main panels by stamping all the layers on kraft cardstocks. The Couture ink colors I used are: Soft Garden Dye, Bright Fern Dye, Basil Mojito Dye, Valentine Red Dye, Lipstick Red Dye, Found Topaz Dye, and Dark Roast Dye. When all the layer stamping was done, I stamped the outline image slightly off-set in Versamark and heat embossed with Gold Sparkle embossing powder. Then, I stamped the sentiment in Noir Dye ink and trimmed both panels down to 4″x5.5″.

For the first card, I embellished the vertical edges of the stamped panel with Glossy Fine Gold Glitter adhesive paper. I popped it up on a red A2 card base with fun foam. I embellished the card with gold thread and some Deck the Halls Couture Mix and the card was done!

For the 2nd card, I added light coat of Warm Hazelnut Dye ink (only on 2 corners) and splattered some gold paint over the stamped panel. I let it dry completely and heat embossed the vertical edges with gold sparkle embossing powder. I popped up the panel on a black A2 card base with fun foam. I finished the card by adding some Christmas twine and sequins from Deck the Halls Couture Mix.
