Christmas Card Club - The holly and the ivy
I've used my trusty retired Stampin' Up! set Watercolour Winter to simply stamp in black Staz On ink onto kraft card. I've coloured in the leaves and berries with mossy meadow and real red ink respectively. A little 'smudging' to soften the edges of my piece and the the base card made with kraft corrugated paper. I also stamped in tip top taupe, but second generation, having stamped off the small background stamp from Holly Jolly Greetings with dots and stars and I've also added some glitter using my fine tip glue pen to add just spots of glue before the glitter was sprinkled on top.
My sentiment I bought today at Horncastle's Christmas Market and it's some printed tape a bit like sellotape which is a recurring run of Merry Christmas, but I liked it for my cards.
A couple of loops around the card with gold cord and it's got my touch of bling that you know I like.
Apologies to my lovely friends at the club for my tardiness, I'll do better next weekend when I'm host and next year. Thanks all for your patience.
Enjoy what's left of your weekend.
