Another fortnight another Christmas Card Club challenge, but I've been really organised this week and have 3 to share with you. Rachel set the challenge of Festive Foliage, all my cards use the Stampin' Up! retired set Holly Berry Happiness, but if you like Holly the punch is still available. Above I've used the fabulous Stitched Shape dies and the Layering Circles which includes some scallop edged circles to create a focal point. I used the 3 step stamping set to create the image and added a separately stamped bow which you can punch out easily. Love the metallic enamel shapes for my bit of bling. Do you ever stamp your envelopes too?
This card uses the same holly set with another sentiment from Tin of Tags set. I've heat embossed the image with copper embossing powder and added night of navy holly berries. A simple matting layer onto a base card also in night of navy card stock.
A vintage version of card number 2 with the outline of the holly again embossed before I stamped in the leaf colour and berries. A little smudging with a sponge around the edge of my base and matting layer of crumb cake with the same ink to soften the edges.
A veritable trio of wreaths sharing plenty of festive foliage.
Have a great week. Zx
