Holly Leaves and Berries
by Marybeth Lopez


 Hi! I hope you are enjoying the Blog Blitz! If you would like to win this die, all you have to do is leave a comment . You could be the lucky winner of this Holly Leaves and Berries die!


To make this card: I embossed watercolor paper with this beautiful  Christmas Cursive Stencil from Memory box, a favorite of mine!  I just run my stencil through my Big Shot with paper and I do not add any embossing pads, I seem to get a crisper impression.


 I used fun foam under the top paper a then stamped my sentiment from..You Keep Me In Stitches, Poppystamps stamps sets. The holly leaves and berries are colored using my Zig pens and then brushed with  clear Wink of Stella, Simple!

Good Luck !

Simply...beautiful! And all the colours of Christmas...red, green and white.

Lovely card, the stencil embossing looks amazing - great impression for not being from an embossing folder.

A beautiful card.

Super gorgeous!

I love the stunning simplicity of this card. Good idea about using the stencil to lightly emboss and not to use the pad...I'll give that one a go! Beautiful card x

Love your sparkly leaves and the embossed background is very elegant. Hugz

Hi Marybeth, This card is lovely, the holly and berries die-cuts look gorgeous especially with the Wink of Stella on them. I especially love your tip about embossing the stencil without embossing pads, I will try your tip, thank you.
