I have been having so much fun creating for my Holiday Card Series this fall and when I put the finishing touches on the Holly Jolly Greetings class, I couldn’t wait to share it with everyone. This was one of my personal favorites from the class, but you’ll have to tell me which is your favorite!
I had a heck of a time photographing it because one of my favorite touches was the subtle sparkle on the trees from where we lightly painted on Dazzling Details glitter glue! You can kind of see it in this picture… it is only on the raised parts of the trees. We ran a thin line of Dazzling Details down the center of each tree and then smeared it around with our finger to make a lightly sparkling tree and something that would dry quickly too!
We used a few stamps from the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set (which was the focus of the class) but added lots of neutral touches like the different browns in the cardstock (Crumb Cake & Early Espresso with Very Vanilla) along with the strip of Burlap Ribbon which I’m just loving this year.
But we also needed some glitz and cheer for the holidays too! You can’t have Christmas without a little sparkle, right? So I added some of the Gold Sequin trim along with that Dazzling Details schmear. A full strand of sequins below the embossed paper and then individual sequins for ornaments. And I had to continue the tree theme between the Woodland embossing folder and the Perfect Pines framelits!
A little bit of sponging with Garden Green ink, some stamping and layering and you have yourself a fun card!
