For my card today, I combined our Amazing Gardenia and Holly Branch stamp sets to create a festive Christmas card.

Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

I started off by rose gold heat embossing the gardenia and branch clusters with our Rose Gold Embossing Powder. Then I painted them with some Ken Oliver Color Bursts (Alizarin Crimson, Wisteria, Sap Green, Terre Vert) using the wet in wet technique. Once dried, I die cut all the clusters using their coordinating dies.

Next, I stamped our new best selling Modern Plaid background stamp (which is back in limited stock) onto an A2 white card panel with our Smoky Quartz Dye Ink. To give my plaid panel a more polished finish, I die cut the edges to add stitching with the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangles die collection. Then I used the three tiered banner from our Basic Banners for my sentiment. I also used the Add On Holiday mini set for the christmas sentiments. The banner was stamped in our Smoky Quartz Dye Ink to match the plaid background. Then I stamped the sentiments in our Light Onyx Ink for a nice dark and crisp look.

Then I assembled my card using some dimensional foam tape. Lastly, I added some of our Medallion Gold sequins. I even tucked some of the larger 10mm and 8mm sequins into the holly branches for added interest.

I loved creating this Christmas card using a regular floral stamp set. The holly branches and plaid background really gave it that christmas-y feel! I hope you all enjoyed today’s card and video!
