It's been a while since I've made a card this simple and with no stamping! First, I cut the card base from linen cardstock. Then I used the same cardstock to die cut three types of holly leaves and a single berry from the Holly Dies collection. I arranged the die cuts to create a tone-on-tone texture background for the sentiment. I used multi-medium matte to adhere the outline leaves and I used micro glue dots to adhere the solid leaves and berries for added dimension.
I die cut the Merry Christmas Word Die three times, twice from black cardstock and once from glitter gold cardstock. I offset the gold slightly to create a shadow and allow the words to be read more easily. I purposely arranged the single berry so that the dot above the 'i' would fit right into it.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
