Today’s project involves the Leaves of Holly Bundle, which is an awesome stamp set and Dies.  It is a case of page 24 of the Mini Catalog.  Casing the catalog is a great way to get your creativity going.


Stampin' Up!, Leaves of Holly, Holly Berry Dies, Evening Evergreen Woven Ribbon, Fine Sparkle Gems, Jackie Beers



The Leaves of Holly stamp set is special in that it has a two step stamping to give awesome definition to the leaves.  For my card I did not utilize that however.  This card has both stamps used, just not in the intended method.  By stamping a couple of each one, and in different colors, it gives a different look and shows extra  flexibility.

Using the matching Dies accomplishes a similar look as the double stamping.  The sentiment layer is part of the Dies and includes the two leaves on the left end of it.  Since those were attached to the sentiment layer, I added one more to go behind the opposite end.  And to bring in some of the Poppy Parade from the thin layer, I added the top layer die for those.  The berries also have double stamps and double die layers.

Finishing Touches

Since the sentiment layer was in White, I did not  want it to get lost on the White background in case it was longer than the stamped area.  So I added the Evening Evergreen Woven Ribbon behind.  The dark color helps make the White sentiment pop!  And the finishing touch is the little Poppy color of the Fine Sparkle Gems added to the sentiment layer.
