The Boughs Of Holly Designer Paper is so pretty; it can be used to make Christmas cards in a jiffy. You can see all of the patterns by clicking on its picture in my Product List below.

I began today’s card with an Evening Evergreen card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. It was layered with Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″, and Boughs Of Holly Designer Paper, cut 1/8″ smaller, giving it a 1/16″ white border. Then, I cut a horizontal piece of Boughs Of Holly Designer Paper, 4″ X 2″, and glued it in place.

Joy & Peace


The sentiment took a little extra time, because I decided to heat emboss it. “Joy & Peace” is from the Leaves Of Holly Stamp Set, stamped in VersaMark on Evening Evergreen Cardstock. Then, I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder. After it was set with the Heat Tool, I used the second smallest, square, Stylish Shapes Die for cutting. Lastly, I glued the square sentiment to a Wonderful Snowflake, and attached it with Dimensionals.

The snowflakes have an iridescent shine, which isn’t showing in the photo, come 24 in a pack, and very handy to use.


 For the final touch, I added three Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels, mimicking the red dots in the Boughs Of Holly Designer Paper. The white pearls were made red by coloring them with a Real Red Stampin’ Blend.


I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.
