Stampin' for Christmas Blog hop

Peaceful place dsp for christmas card making with holly stamp

Welcome to the 

You might have just left Nina's blog. Isn't her share great!  It is now allowed to say Christmas I think now we've past Bonfire Night and so time to start making your cards and other festive paper craft items if you haven't like me been doing them all year.  

Today I'm sharing a card using the very popular Peaceful Place DSP (patterned paper) and a simple addition of a sentiment, ribbon and partially fussy cut holly sprig from the Happy Holly-days stamp set.

I used a Real Red card for a square card base and added a matt layer of black card before adding my DSP layer with the ribbon fastened behind this layer.  
I stamped the sentiment and holly sprig on the same piece of white card and then used my Stampin' trimmer to remove excess white around the sentiment and keep the holly attached to the sentiment.  I used that good old punch/die called scissors to remove most of the white around the holly, but left it attached to the sentiment. 
Below I've  adapted the ribbon usage by just looping it across the back of my sentiment, used a banner punch to decorate one end and added a few rhinestones to coordinate with the silver embossed background DSP.  This paper is so beautiful and one sheet makes 4 good sized square cards, you just have to cut it which I know for some is very challenging as you prefer to stroke it, but at least this way just about the whole sheet is used and minimal wastage.  Even the thin strips cut off can be used for another card or too as borders.
