Even a little bit of gold is a bold look on a card.  And today’s project showcases gold in a fun way with the Leaves of Holly Bundle.


Stampin' Up!, Leaves of Holly, Holly Berry Dies, Lights Aglow, Gold Foil, Timeworn Type, Jackie Beers



The various papers are the star of this card.  By using Gold Foil for the holly leaves gives them extra Pop and more shine for the card.  And the beautiful piece of DSP peeking from behind the  Soft Succulent contains gold flecks.  This paper is from the Lights Aglow Designer Series Paper.  Each piece of the gorgeous paper in this pack has bits of gold in them.  It being a 6X6 makes the sheets the perfect size to cut strips as I did here.

Stamps and Dies

The Leaves Of Holly Bundle is a great Winter and Christmas Bundle.  The holly leaves are wonderful in that there are both detailed and more solid stamps for each leaf.  There are also matching Dies for each of the layering leaves.  All of the sentiments are good ones.  The shape of the sentiment layer is an included Die too.


The dividing of the Soft Succulent layer is the highlight of this card but It still needed some texture.  By using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder it made a variety of different textures.  And the final touch of a Festive Pearl gives a bit of bling to the sentiment.  Between the pearl and the shaped sentiment layer helps it not be totally overlooked from all of the gold!


This layout is a case of a Mary Fish card.  The card base is a normal one but the layer is the exciting part.  To create the layer cut a piece of Soft Succulent to 3 1/4″ X 5 1/4″ and then emboss it.  Next cut the left side off at 1″.  A 1″ X 5 1/4″ strip of the wonderful DSP is what makes this fun layer.

Place Stampin’ Dimensionals down the center of the back of the 1″ piece of cardstock that was cut.  Adhere it to the left side of your card with equal space at the top, bottom, and left edge.  Next add adhesive to the strip of DSP and place it just a bit underneath the edge of the raised cardtock and flush at top and bottom.  Finally add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the larger piece of cardstock and place it on the right side the same way as the left side.
