Christmas in July Card #2

Xmas-SAS-holly(web)Isn’t is cute?  Notice anything familiar about it?  Nothing?  Really?  It’s the same sketch as Christmas in July card #1.  I just love how you can use the same sketch and make 2 cards that look totally different!

For this one, we used the rock n roll technique on the holly stamp.  We inked in Mellow Moss first, then rolled the edges in Always Artichoke.  I ♥ that color combo!  Throw in some Sahara Sand, and you get a big ooh ahh.  Then we stamped the holly again in Bravo Burgundy and cut out the berries (all in one, not 3 teeny tiny itty bitty pieces).  Glue them on and lookie!  Adds depth and dimension and easy peasy!  Notice the little holes in the scallop edge?  Did that with the paper piercing tool.  Just freehand.  One of the girls forgot to do the piercing and attached it to the card front so she couldn’t fix it.  Being the smart cookie she is, she took the Burgundy Stampin’ Write marker and used the journaling end to make the dots.  Looked awesome!
