The project for week 4 of my Countdown to Christmas 2023 series is this fun holly card.
It is a CASE of a project I’ve made previously. Check out my video all about the concept of CASE-ing.
This card uses Crumb Cake with Real Red, Garden Green, Early Espresso and Basic White.
All of the images are from the Christmas Classics Stamp Set from the September-December Mini Catalogue. I’m really enjoying this set as there are lots of different sentiments and a few images too, so it’s quite versatile.
To begin, the holly leaves are stamped in Early Espresso, then the berries are stamped in Real Red.
Next, using Watercolor Pencils, the leaves are coloured. If you wanted to, you could stamp a full sheet of cardstock, colour, then cut the sheet into 4. Great if you want to create a few in a production line style.
A touch of sparkle is added to the berries with some Wink of Stella.
For the sentiment, this is stamped in Garden Green and punched out using the 2″ Circle Punch. This punch is available from the Online Exclusives range.
To mirror the berries, a larger 2 3/8″ circle is punched out to layer the sentiment.
Using the Real Red and Garden Green Ribbon Combo Pack, two strips of the Garden Green Ribbon are added, with a length of the Real Red across the middle.
Finally, the sentiment is stuck to the project using Dimensionals.
