Welcome to another week of Christmas inspiration with the Art with Heart team.
This week I’m playing with holly: holly paper, holly embossing folder, holly embellishments, and holly stamps, including a stamp set I hadn’t inked up yet.
I was really attracted to the Every Good Wish stamp set because I’ve got a soft spot for holly. It’s just so classic and timeless…and so very Christmassy.
Here’s my first card. I’ve used real red and garden green for all of my holly cards…it’s such a great colour combination, at once both classic and crisp.
Don’t you just love the texture the Holly textured impressions embossing folder gives to this card?
I love all of the stamps in the Every Good Wish stamp set and the inside sentiments are as lovely as the main images. I don’t usually ink up the inside of my cards but I just had to use these lovely sentiments to decorate the inside of my holly cards.
For my second card I made a variation of my first card, altering the colours and the orientation of the first card, and I also stamped a greeting on the inside of this one too. The gorgeous Quilted Christmas ribbon makes the perfect embellishment for this colour combination.
I was on a roll with my holly theme so I made 2 more cards…and I actually think these are my favourites! I used the same little holly stamp to make a wreath, this time mounting it onto holly DSP from the Quilted Christmas DSP.
My final card uses the holly embossing folder again, this time with a stamp from the Oh, What Fun stamp set, embellished with a holly stitched felt embellishment.
And here’s all my cards together! Which is your favourite?
To see what the rest of the team have made hop back to Claire’s blog and I’ll be back with some more Christmas inspiration next week.
