Decorative Christmas Holly
Completed top fold card measures 5” x 7”. Cut one piece of white card stock measuring 5” x 7”, and a second piece measuring 5” x 7 1/2". Score the longer piece of card stock at 1/2" and adhere two pieces of white card stock together to create top fold card base. Select a decorative piece of paper from the Festive Christmas Paper Collection. Cut a mat measuring just slightly smaller than the card front. Adhere mat to card base.
Next, cut a coordinating decorative piece of paper from the paper collection measuring 4” x 6”. Using the larger circle from the Circle Basics Large Die, die cut a circle in the center of the decorative paper. Continue matting by adhering the decorative paper with die cut center onto a piece of slightly larger white card stock, and again onto a slightly larger piece of Gold Luxe Card Stock.
Using Memento Danube Blue ink, stamp sentiment from Berry and Birdies Cling Stamp Set using acrylic block or MISTI into center of layered mat just assembled. Apply dimensional foam tape to back and set aside.
Next, using white card stock, create the decorative die cut embellishment piece from the Decorative Circle Frames Die using the decorative insert and the largest circle in the same set, creating a frame for around the sentiment. Repeat a second time using Luxe Gold Card Stock. Using Dries Clear Adhesive, adhere the two decorative die cuts together, offsetting them slightly so the gold peeks through from behind the white die cut. Adhere the decorative die cut frame to the matted panel, and now apply to card front.
Stamp one inking of large bird image from the Festive Berry and Birdies Cling Stamp Set onto Bristol smooth marker paper using Ranger Archival Jet Black ink. Color using Zig markers, and die cut with coordinating die.
Stamp four of the holly images from the Christmas Holly Accents Cling Stamp Set onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using Ranger Archival Ink Olive. Color using Stack and Store Daubers and a combination of Ranger Archival Ink Leaf Green and a hint of the darker Olive color the images have been stamped in. Die cut using coordinating die. Shape using Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and set aside.
Stamp five of the slender leafy accents from the Christmas Holly Accents Cling Stamp Set onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using Ranger Archival Ink Leaf Green. Color using Stack and Store Daubers and the same color they have been stamped in. Die cut with coordinating die. Shape using Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and set aside.
Next, stamp the two smaller petal sizes from the Christmas Poinsettia and Holly Cling Stamp Set onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using Ranger Archival Ink Carnation Red. Also stamp one inking of the larger holly leaves from the set using Ranger Archival Ink English Ivy. Color center of poinsettias with Stack and Store Daubers and Ranger Archival Sunflower, then finish petals and leaves using the same colors each of the images have been stamped in. Die cut using coordinating dies, ink the edges of the petals and leaves in corresponding colors, and shape using 3D Christmas Poinsettia Shaping Mold. Finish rounding out flower centers slightly with Deluxe Flower Kit.
To begin building floral clusters as shown, adhere two holly leaves angled beside one another onto top left corner and bottom right corner, making sure to pay attention to how they will fall into and accent the sentiment in the center of the card. Next, adhere three of the slender leafy accents to the bottom cluster coming out from behind both of the ends of the holly images and one in the bottom corner pointing away from the sentiment. Adhere the remaining two slender leafy accents to the top cluster, one facing the top of card, and one coming down toward the sentiment as shown.
Next, double up some dimensional foam tape and adhere bird image to bottom cluster. To complete the bottom cluster, create a small double poinsettia from the smallest poinsettia petals that have been shaped. Position on bird image as shown, along with a large holly leaf beside the flower to determine placement. Once happy with placement, adhere to floral cluster.
To finish top floral cluster, assemble a small double poinsettia and a larger double poinsettia. Position into cluster as shown adding in two of the Christmas Poinsettia holly leaves. Adhere to foliage cluster.
Lastly, finish poinsettia flower centers by applying Heart of Gold Prills with Dries Clear Adhesive. Using a piece of Hydra Sponge, apply a thin layer of Dries Clear Adhesive to flowers and foliage and sprinkle with Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter.
