Hello friends. 'Tis the season to be getting started on your handmade Christmas cards. I really value sending handmade cards to my friends and family. I love the tradition of giving and receiving cards, and having them displayed among my Christmas decorations. It brings warmth to my heart. That is worth devoting time to.
I really love traditional Christmas colours for creating. The Boughs of Holly DSP ticks all the boxes for me, as it coordinates with 3 of our red colours, and 3 of our green colours. I also added in an additional green in this card. Here's a look at the delightful Boughs of Holly DSP. The imagery is so gorgeous and I love the Poinsettias especially.
Here's a look at the card I made using this DSP and the Leaves of Holly bundle from the suite.
I have used Evening Evergreen and Old Olive as the greens, and coloured the berries on the Textural Elements embellishments with Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends. I love the dimension you get with these pressed wood embellishments.
I have used gold metallic trim (from the Simply Elegant Trim Pack) on this card, but the suite also includes Natural Woven Ribbon which can be coloured with Stampin' Blends. Linen thread would also be a fabulous embellishment to use with this DSP.
Here's a look at the Leaves of Holly bundle and the the whole Boughs of Holly suite. Look out for many more creations from me using this suite for Christmas.
You can view the Boughs of Holly Suite, and the individual items (which can be purchased individually also) HERE in my online Stampin' Up! store.
Here's some additional samples using the Boughs of Holly Suite, which were created by the Stampin' Up! Concept Art team. These are the ones you will also find on page 24 of the Stampin' Up! July to December Mini Catalogue.
