VIDEO-Holly Berry Happiness Christmas Cards


holly-berries-x-2-8x10-landscape

Today’s cards were stamped using the Holly Berry Happiness Photopolymer Stamp Set and the coordinating Holly Berry Builder Punch.  The first card is simpler and quicker to make with only the sentiment embossed.  The second card has a panel of Whisper White Cardstock embossed with the Diagonal Stripe Clear-Mount Stamp (also available in wood), Versamark Ink and Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  The leaves, berries and bow are all gold embossed as well.
