I began today’s Christmas card with a Thick Very Vanilla card base, and a layer of Very Vanilla Cardstock. I embossed the layer with the Scripty Embossing Folder at an angle.

Holly & Berries


The Toile Tidings Designer Paper has a Very Vanilla background, so a perfect choice to complete my design.

I used a Beautiful Boughs Die to cut a fancy rectangle from a piece of the DSP with Garden Green branches and berries.


To add some colorful berries, I used a Light Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend. I layered the rectangle for thickness, and threaded some Braided Linen Trim through its cute, little, holes.

Can you see the branch I fussy cut from the DSP?


After placing the rectangle on Dimensionals, I taped the ends of the trim to the back of the Scripty embossed layer, tied a knot at the top, and fringed the ends.

“Christmas Cheer” is from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set, stamped in cherry Cobbler ink, and cut with an Ornate Frames Die.


The layout for my card is from the Global Design Project.
