Well only 2 more Christmas cards to add after this one and then I’m putting my Christmas stash away for awhile :0( This card was made using the Black base card stock of Stampin Up! While the Red background is from BoBunny’s “a gift of love” collection. The holly was punched using the Sizzix Die “Festive Greenery” and BoBunny’s “Wasabi Vintage” Double Dot Designs paper. I sketched the banner on a “6 x 6” sheet of Graphic 45 solid “Come Away With Me” paper. The bow I sketched and cut using the dimensions given by the lovely Bona on her youtube channel “LiveLoveScrap”. It was then covered using Kaisercraft Washi Glitter Tape. I didn’t like the seam after applying 2 strips of the gold and that’s when I added the red. The gold elastic cord is from Stampin Up! as is the black embossing powder. My Versamark pen was used to adhere the powder. I used TH Distresss Inks on the banner & holly leaves: Tea Dye, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Black Soot & Mowed Lawn. For dimension I used pop up squares, for adhesive I used Glossy Accents & Elmers quick dry glue. The gemstone stickers are from Forever In Time & the rhinestones are from Recollections. I brushed all of the holly leaves with Wink of Stella ‘Clear’ brush pen.
