Welcome to Share it Sunday Blog Hop where The Crafty Collaborations team shares any project we’ve recently been working on. I’ve chosen to share the first Boughs of Holly Christmas card I’ve made and my first Christmas card of the year.
When I’m unsure of a layout to use with a new stamp set or bundle, I fall back on one of my Go To Layouts. This is one of my favorites. Almost every patterned paper and stamp set will work with this and it’s easy to do! So pick a patterned paper, a coordinating color of card stock and start to make a card! The best part….it also works in Landscape orientation! You can even change up the width of your patterned paper! Really, give this a try!
The Boughs of Holly Suite is amazing. I am loving the papers, dies, and stamps. It also comes with a ribbon and textural elements. We will be using this amazing suite at our next Creativity Abounds Stamp Camp. You can see details below.
- Start with a Basic White card base cut 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″.
- Cut a strip of patterned paper 2 3/4″ x 5 1/2″.
- Then add a strip of card stock to the back of the patterned paper, along each of the long sides- cut 1/2″ x 5 1/2″.
- Adhere this to your card base.
- Next add the die cuts and a greeting. The Holly Berry dies comes with this great combination of leaves and a sentiment shape. The leaves were cut in Evening Evergreen and Mossy Meadow. The berries were stamped in Real Red on Real Red card stock and die cut.
- Easy Peasy! You’ve made a card.
