Holiday Holly

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs Holly Jolly aI am back with another project from the new Suzanne Cannon Holiday release from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  Today I am playing with the new Flourished Holly die set and the Let Your Heart Be Light stamp set.

Below you will find a full pictorial tutorial on how to create this simple Christmas Card.

IMG_7809Step One:  Die cut the new Flourished Holly die with some 100lb Soft Finish Cardstock.

IMG_7810Step Two:  Color the holly leaves and berry with alcohol markers.  I used copics.  The berries were colored with the Rich Red Nuvo Creative Pen Collection and G24, G28, and G29 copics for the holly leaves.

IMG_7811Step Three:  Using some Kids Choice Glue, adhere the leaves and berries to the back of the die cut.

IMG_7812Step Four:  Trim a piece of 100lb Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×11 inches and trim and fold it to create an A2 card.  Die cut a piece of Ladybug Red Soft Finish Cardstock and a piece of Forest Green Soft Finish Cardstock with the Stitched Rounded Rectangle die set.

Step Five:  Using some 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the rectangle to the card frame.  Then using some Kids Choice Glue, adhere the die cut holly to the card frame.

IMG_7813Step Six:  Add a sentiment to the card using the new Let Your Heart Be Light stamp set to the card.

IMG_7814Step Seven:  Using a white gel pen, add some detailing to the stamped sentiment.

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs Holly Jolly cI now want to recreated this card in a collection of other colors that and not the classic green and red holiday combination.  Let me know in the comments below what your favorite color combination.  Until then, Happy Crafting.
