It’s time for our Create with Connie and Mary Inspiration Monday challenge. Isn’t this a pretty holly garland? LOVE the colors!
LEAVES OF HOLLY
Here’s what I did with the inspiration! I was going for a single layer card, but then decided it needed a little dimension, so used a white holly leaf and berries!
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Garden Green cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Basic White cardstock was stamped with the Leaves of Holly small solid leaf in Coastal Cabana and stamped off Garden Green Inks randomly along the edges. The detail leaf images were stamped over top in Bermuda Bay and full-strength Garden Green.
- Christmas Wishes from Leaves of Holly stamp set was stamped with Memento Black Ink.
- The solid and detail holly leaves were cut with the Holly Berry Dies and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- A trio of large Iridescent Rhinestones were added to the stem for the berries, and one medium to the background above the greeting.
Inks: Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, Garden Green, Memento Black
