poppystamps O Holy Night and Holly Frame and Stencil Card…

Are you singing yet? I’m not out-loud at the moment but I am inside! lol

I started this card by die cutting the NEW poppystamps Holly Frame die in white cardstock and using the stencil that came with the die to color the holly leaves.

I’m really happy with this green!  I used the mini ink blending tools and 3 Distress Ink pads in Evergreen Bough first, Pine Needles second and the last one over the top is Mowed Lawn.  I love this combo and it’s even prettier IRL!  I colored the berries with R27 Copic Sketch marker, then laid the stencil back on and spattered with Heidi Swapp’s Gold spray.

The circle of white cardstock you get when you diecut the frame, I colored with Red Distress ink pads and mini ink blending tools.  I started with Worn Lipstick, then Candy Apple, then Festive Berries, then a little Aged Mahogany around the edges. I love how this combo worked up too!  I spattered it with gold ink also.  I use a dropper to get the gold out of the spray bottle and put a little out on a clear block and brush it off the edge of the block with a paintbrush to spatter the cardstock.

I die cut the NEW poppystamps O Holy Night Flourish die in metallic gold cardstock, just one layer this time.  I did put little pieces of mounting tape under some of the letters though so it wouldn’t fall in.

A pretty card but not real labor intensive either!  YAY!  I just love how it turned out!

I used mounting tape under the holly leaves and cut strips of mounting tape to go around the outside rectangle part of the frame. Then on to the cardbase.  I glued the red piece directly onto the cardbase, it’s not mounted up.

An A2 size card and it should go through the mail great, I like using a larger envelope such as an A6 or 7 to protect the corners.  Still the same price. I love the presentation of it being in the right size envelope though and if I remember, I put it in an A2 envelope first then into the larger one.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I have another Winter scene card going up tomorrow.  Then it’s Thanksgiving with the family and then some Christmas decorating around the house, which I’m sure most of you will be doing too!  YAY!  See you tomorrow!

  1. I love this one too. I swear-you never make an ugly card!!! I have learned when I don’t like a card-I just keep working on it and adding a little here and there until I can tolerate it-ha ha!! It’s always debatable if a card I am not wild about ever gets sent!!! Happy Thanksgiving – hope you have a wonderful week-end with your family!!

  2. Absolutely wonderful Pam! I love your pristine scene and that’s a great idea for colouring the holly. I’ve been thinking about dies and not really knowing what to look for so Memory Box is definitely going on my search list! Thank you 🙂

I love hearing from you! Thank YOU!
