Embossed Holly

I made this embossed and stamped Christmas card for both the Christmas Kickstart Challenge and the Let's Squash It challenge.

I embossed a piece of white card with the holly folder, trimmed around the edge and attached it to the front of the card.  I used brown ink to stamp the Christmas pudding and green ink to stamp the holly onto a snippet of white card  These were both embossed with clear embossing powder and cut with the coordinating dies.  I attached the pudding to the centre of the card with a foam pad and applied Crystal Stickles to the top.  I coloured the berries with a red Promarker and added a Wink of Stella.  Once the Stickles had dried I attached the holly to the top of the pudding.

To make this card I used:
     5" x 5" white matt card blank
     Clearly Besotted 'Christmas Pudding' stamps and coordinating dies
     Apple Blossom 'Holly' embossing folder (this had been a cover gift with a magazine)
     Versafine Vintage Sepia and Olympia Green ink
     Berry Promarker
     Crystal Stickles
     Wink of Stella
     Snippet of white matt card

I am entering the following challenges:
     Christmas Kickstart Challenge - Use a Christmas embossing folder and a stamp
     Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - Use Some Glitter
     Let's Squash It - Use a Christmas themed embossing folder and stamps
