Merry Christmas Holly

This is by far one of my favourite stamp sets.....A Cardinal Christmas.  I just love this Christmas Holly.  The ribbon might be a bit out of place - I should change but other than that I really like this card.  I saw this technique on Splitcoast Stampers using the Big Shot along with the Petals-A-Plenty Textured Impressions Folder and an oval template.  I made my oval template from a piece of chipboard I had.  It worked like a charm.  Some stampers cut their Petals-A-Plenty Textured Impressions Folder to get the same effect.  I was a bit leery in doing that.  So yippeee that I was able to do the same thing with chipboard.

  1. I'm going to have to try this, Michelle! I, too, would not want to cut into my embossing folder. Glad to know it works this way, too!
