Holly Frame Joy Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  Hope everyone is enjoying their holiday/winter crafting.  I am still creating cards to mail off to family.   I finally used the Stunning Mandala 3D embossing folder and love how it embossing.  It is good for any occasion.


Stunning Mandala Background:

Spray Memory Box Water color paper with Lindy's Gang Starburst ink spay.  Let almost dry and emboss with the Stunning Mandala embossing folder.  Trim down to fit behind the 3 largest Stitched Rectangle Trimmings die.



Die cut the 3 rd larger Stitched Rectangle Trimmings die from gold paper out of the Festive Glitter Pad.  Die cut 2 more frames from scratch paper and glue on top of each other to stack up the frame.


Holly Leaves:

Die cut Holly Bundle dies from heavy white card stock several times.  Ink blend with Distress Mowed Lawn then Lucky Clover.  Add a coat of Distress Micro Glaze to give them a light polish.  


Smooth Pine Cone:

Die cut several of the smaller Smooth Pine Cone die from a dark brown from the Earth Neutral paper pack.   Glue together, reference the back of the die folder to help with assembly.  Add Distress Grint paste and let dry.


Pine Needle Trio:

Spray Memory Box Watercolor paper with Dylusions Mushy Peas Spray.  Dry. Die cut with the 2 smaller dies of the Pine Needle Trio.  Cutting several.



Cut a A2 panel from the dark green from the Lush Green paper pack.  Glue the Frame over the 3D embossed panel then adhere to the center of the panel.  Arrange the die cuts around the frame.  Add the pine cones with foam squares behind the holly leaves.  Tuck in the pine needles behind the holly leaves.  Add the red jewels from Christmas Fairy Dewdrops as berries over the holly leaves.  Die cut the Joy Posh Script from the same gold glitter paper and dark green.  Glue to the center of the 3D embossed panel.  Adhere to a A2 size card base.  Stamp your favorite sentiment on the inside with the Yuletide Moments stamp set.







Wow that embossing is just gorgeous and love the holly to embellish around it!
