Today I am revisiting an older set from The Stamps of Life called Holly4Christmas. This wonderful stamp set is great for Christmas card making. I also used the new Triple Circle Slimline Drop in die on a couple of the cards.
Using my Triple circle Slimline drop in die, I cut a piece of Powdered Sugar card stock and stamped the string of lights at the the top and bottom of my paper. I colored with markers and then layered in Cranberry circles. I cut the smaller circles from Ocean and stamped my ornaments from Holly4Christmas and heat embossed them with silver. I finished it off with a few sequins and added it to my Slimline card base.
For my second card, I stamped a piece of Cranberry card stock with the light string from Holly4Christmas. I added some glitter glue to each lightbulb and let it dry. Then I cut a Tag from Kiwi card stock and stamped the large sentiment. All around the tag I stamped some holly leaves and added gingham ribbon. I attached all this to a Green Apple Card base.
For my final card, I created another slimline card. While I was making my first card with the Triple Circle Slimline drop in die I couldn’t decide my color scheme – can anyone relate?? So I ended up with a lot of extra circles.
Instead of recycling them, I decided to create a background by adding them in a random pattern onto Powdered Sugar Card stock. I adhered the Christmas die cut as well as the banners to complete this card. It turned out to be fun and modern and great way to reuse your scraps!
