Jolly Holly

Hi there everyone, Jennifer here again.

Hope  you are all well and happy, if not I'm sending out a hug to those who may need one - did you feel that hug ?   good lols.   Well today's card that I would like to share with you is one I made in June of 2012 for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Crafts   I'm now back in the Christmas mode lols !!  So here goes, this card is quite a quick card to do but not if you are making a batch of cards !

The base card is made from dark green card.   Cut a smaller piece of white paper and paint all four edges with gold mica powder mixed with water.   When dry, matt this onto the green card.  Take another piece of green card a little smaller than the gold edged paper and punch all four corners with the corner punch.   Put this aside for the moment.

Put a piece of white card and the poinsettia stencil and put through an embossing machine.   Gently rub the Versamark pad over the embossed card and brush the mica powder over it.    Remove the excess powder.

Randomly stamp the holly with black ink (second stamping !) as we don't want the holly to stand out too much.   Do the same with the mistletoe sprig but this time use the green distress ink.   Fix this panel into the four punched corners you did earlier.

Stamp the main image onto some white card using Versamark and heat emboss using green embossing powder.   Colour with mica powders, brush and water.   Cut out and matt onto a piece of green card, slightly larger than the image.   Fix this to the base card.

Stamp out the holly, only this time, cut out, colour and 3D onto the original image.   Cover the red berries with Magi - Glaze.  Use the Edgeabilities dies and a die - cutting machine and cut out and emboss a border.   Paint it with gold mica powder.   Rub the Versamark pad down the outer edge of the cut strip and heat emboss with green powder.   Glue this to the right - hand edge of the central image.

Well that's it folks, not too much work but more a one off lols.   Hope you like it.  Thank you so...much for visiting our blog.   We look forward to hearing your comments.   Until next time, take good care of yourselves.

Happy Crafting,  
Jennifer xxx
