Sweetest Foiled Holly Border Christmas Card

by Joanne James14. September 2020 18:29

As promised here's my second card today that was inspired by the super simple sketch over at CAS Colours and Sketches this week:

I was immediately drawn to that straight horizontal line; but instead of choosing a panel of designer series paper, which you may be forgiven for thinking would have been my 'go to' for a sketch like this, I actually went with one of the Sweetest Borders Dies - take a look:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

The holly border die in this set sits on a straight horizontal line, so seemed the perfect choice. I cut if out of Garden Green cardstock and adhered to a thick Whisper White cardbase, and then used the red and green foils to paper-piece the holly and berry detail into the negative space. Easy to do and so pretty in real life - the foil shine adds a real touch of luxury to my otherwise clean and simple card:

 

A heat embossed greeting on the front and a little stamping on the envelope and inside of my card complete today's project:

 

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

 

You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Enjoy your evening and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Creative interpretation of the sketch! And addition of foils in empty space of the die cutting was the finising touch of this card. Thank you for playing along with CC&S challenge.
