Scribble Holly Trio Outlines
by Vicki Finger

Hello!  Vicki here with you today sharing a project that is very simple but elegant card for you.  This card uses the Scribble Holly Trio Outlines dies with some very old Creative Memories Patterned Paper.  I was a long time Creative Memories Consultant - like 20 years, so you know I have a lot of paper from back then. Most of it is not really suitable for cardmaking because it isn't heavy enough and I'm normally not much for a patterned paper.  However, when I was looking through my scrap stash today, I came across this scrap that I've been saving and I thought it was just perfect for my card.  I'm pretty sure this was from a collection called Reminisce Noel but I don't know if I am remembering that correctly or not.   I would consider this a collage style of paper and I wish I had more of it, but I only have scraps left by now. You can see a little of the shimmer mist here, but I kept it very subtle.

I started by die cutting the Scribble Holly from Gold Cardstock and an Olive Shimmer.  For Die Cut Inlay techniques, it doesn't get any simpler than this.  I just popped the green parts out and moved them to the inside of the gold ones.  I love how the gold outlines add so much without taking over the whole card.

There are dies that cut the whole inside of the leaves, but I don't have them and I don't feel that I need to have them.  As I said, it was simply a matter of popping out the gold and popping in the green.  I hope that when people receive my cards, their first thought is "oh, how pretty", but their second thought is that they really appreciate the details and thought that went into the card.

I used some deep red gems that I've also had for several years for the berry cluster. I have a zippy bag on my desk that contains all of my bling collected through the years.  Since I primarily use little crystals or pearls, I don't get into the bag often, but this was just the thing needed to give a little pop of color and dimension to this card.

I used the Brush Merry Christmas Die for my Sentiment.  This is one of my favorites as I really like dies that have the whole saying in them. I usually run my cardstock through my Xyron and then die cut it which is what I did here.  Once I place the sentiment down, I put the die over the sentiment and pop out the dot for the "i" (called the "tittle") with my craft pick so that I have it placed correctly.  This makes it super easy to get it in the correct spot.  As always, I used Rectangle Basics Dies to cut my layers for the backgrounds.  This is a super quick card to make if you want something that is fast that you can easily make multiples of.

Thanks for stopping by today!
