Stampin' Up! Boughs of Holly

Today's card features the Stampin' Up! Boughs of Holly Suite - my favourite from the July to December Mini Catalogue.  I absolutely love the two step stamping and also this amazing bark Designer Series Paper.  During our recent Creativity Abounds Stamp Camp we were challenged to make a card based on this sketch and this is the card I created.  I love how it turned out.

Thanks Heather Thomas for this amazing sketch!

Here's my take on this sketch!


  1. Cut Cherry Cobbler card stock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at 4 1/4".  Fold on score line to form card base.
  2. Cut 6 strips of Designer Series Paper 3/4" x 3 3/4"
  3. Adhere to the card base evenly - I left about 1/4" from top and bottom and about 1/8" between strips - although it wasn't exact!
  4. Cut 2nd largest circle using Stylish Shapes Dies from Cherry Cobbler card stock
  5. Adhere to the bottom right of the card base.
  6. Stamp 2 leaves using Crumb Cake and Evening Evergreen ink
  7. Cut out using Dies
  8. Adhere to the card base using Dimensionals.
  9. Stamp berries using Cherry Cobbler Ink - stamped off
  10. Stamp detailed image over berries using Cherry Cobbler ink - full strength
  11. Cut out using Dies
  12. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals
  13. Stamp sentiment images using Evening Evergreen in on scraps of Basic White card stock
  14. Cut out using Paper Snips
  15. Adhere to card base 
  16. Cut 3" of ribbon.
  17. Fold in half and tuck under circle.  Adhere with a Glue Dot.
  18. Adhere sequins
  19. Cut Basic White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  20. Cut Designer Series Paper 1/2" x 3 3/4"
  21. Adhere to the Basic White card stock
  22. Stamp sentiment using Evening Evergreen ink
  23. Adhere to inside of card.
