Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly Christmas Card with Gold Accents

The beautiful Leaves of Holly Bundle (Leaves of Holly Stamp Set and Holly Berry Dies) and the Boughs of Holly 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper were used to create today’s card. Brushed Metallic Cardstock, gold Simply Elegant Trim, and gold Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots were also used to add some shimmer to the card. The Leaves of Holly Stamp Set, Holly Berry Dies and Boughs of Holly 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper will be retiring with the July-December Mini Catalog! If you’d like to add these products to your crafting stash, be sure to order soon as they are only available while supplies last!

To start, I adhered a 1/2″ strip of Cherry Cobbler cardstock to a piece of the bark pattern paper from the Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper. A sentiment from the Leaves of Holly Stamp Set was stamped onto the lower right corner of the DSP panel in Early Espresso ink. The DSP panel was then adhered to a mat in Soft Suede and this unit was then adhered to the card front.

The large and small holly leaves were die cut using the copper-colored and gold Brushed Metallic Cardstock. The outline images and the solid images were both die cut and the holly leaves were assembled and adhered to the Cherry Cobbler strip on the card front. I angled one holly leaf up and to the right and the second holly leaf was angled down and to the right of the Cherry Cobbler strip.

From the small poinsettia print paper from the Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper, I fussy cut one of the poinsettia, leaf and berry images and adhered this over top of the Cherry Cobbler strip and holly leaves on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside panel of the card, a second 1/2″ strip of Cherry Cobbler cardstock was positioned on the right side of the panel, leaving approximately 1/4″ of the white panel showing on the right. I then stamped a sentiment onto the white panel then adhered the Cherry Cobbler strip to the panel. The panel was then adhered to the inside of the card.

A double bow was tied using gold Simply Elegant Trim and added just below the fussy cut poinsettia on the card front. Several gold Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots were added to the card front as well.

On the envelope the “open” image of the holly leaf from the Leaves of Holly Stamp Set were stamped onto the front of the envelope in Mossy Meadow ink. The leaf was first stamped, then second-generation stamped again into the same corner of the envelope. A piece of coordinating designer series paper was adhered to the envelope flap and the excess paper was trimmed away from the flap to finish off the envelope.

The Leaves of Holly Bundle and the coordinating Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper have become some of my favorite products to create beautiful holiday cards! The images and die cuts are gorgeous…as is the paper! I hope you enjoyed today’s card and that I’ve inspired you to give these products a try!

Earn Double Honey Drob Points in Honor of the Last Chance Products Promotion!

I’m offering double Honey Drop Points beginning on December 1, 2022, running through December 22! That’s three weeks to earn double points! I’m offering double Honey Drop points in honor of the Last Chance Products promotion! We’ll be sad to see retiring products but it’s not too late to grab some for yourself before they’re gone or grab some items to gift to your favorite crafters!

You might be asking – what are Honey Drop points?

Qualifying customers can earn Honey Drop points from me as part of my Honeybee Rewards Program. Once you earn 16 Honey Drops you can earn products valued up to $40 from any current catalog from me. Here is how the double points work:

  • Place an order in my online store between December 1 and December 22, 2022 to earn double Honey Drops.
  • If you place an order of $25 (before shipping and any applicable tax) you will receive 2 Honey Drop points (instead of just one), for a $50 order you’ll earn 4 points, for a $75 order you’ll earn 6 points, and so on. Normally you would earn only 1 point for every $25 spent.
  • Collect sixteen (16) Honey Drops and you can earn any product or products with a value up to $40 from any current catalog and the item will be mailed directly to you! You’ll receive free shipping, too!
  • Each of your online orders must be for $25 or more for you to be eligible to earn double Honey Drop points (before Shipping and any applicable tax).
  • Don’t forget to use my December host code (will be posted to my site on December 1), when placing orders. This qualifies you to receive a free thank you gift from me (if your order is over $150 don’t use the host code. You are eligible for Stampin’ Rewards but you’ll still get the free gift from me).
