A trio of holly cardsPosted: October 29, 2012
A friend asked me to make her Christmas cards this year, a task I happily took on. She does not want a huge amount but enough that I am definitely doing some mass production. I found this weekend when I started to make numerous versions of the holly card above it wasn’t long before I had adapted it a little. I actually prefer the one below, my second version.
I had created quite a few of the version above when I accidentally scored the white cardstock in the wrong direction, hence version three below.
I created the tiles first by inking the holly stamp with red and green markers and stamping it on white card. I then added the music background stamp in grey ink which had been stamped off on scrap first to make it lighter. I used a punch to cut out as many tiles as possible then a larger punch for the mats. I sponged the tiles after they were punched. The background holly on the base was just stamped in green.
Stamps: Winter Bough, Joy.Hope, Flourish Christmas (Penny Black)
Cardstock: Penny Black Mix & Match Rose Garden and Sea Breeze
Inks: Memento Rhubarb Stalk, Cottage Ivy, London fog, Lady bug(Tsukineko)
Also: Grosgrain ribbon
