Greetings my stamping friends! I am sharing with you today another Christmas card I created using new products from the July to December 2022 Mini Catalog. This project uses items from the Boughs of Holly Suite collection which you will find starting at page 24 of the Mini Catalog.
I love when Stampin’ Up! puts a suite of products together for us. Don’t you? I mean their products coordinate so well together on their own but grouping them in suites just makes it so much easier to create beautiful projects.
Okay, here is today’s project!
This design came together fairly quickly after I narrowed down the pattern of designer series paper I wanted to use. It’s really a hard choice to make when they are all so pretty!
I left a wider border on my card base than I typically do, cutting my bottom card stock out of Mossy Meadow at 4.75″ x 3.50″ and the DSP at 4-5/8″ x 3-3/8″. This layer of the card is attached flat to the Basic White card base (8.50″ x 5.50″ – scored @ 4.25″) with multipurpose glue.
I used the label die from the coordinating set of Holly Berry dies and cut out the largest label with the attached holly leaves out of Basic White card stock. I cut the solid piece of the leaf backing out of Mossy Meadow and attached to the back of the label carefully with multipurpose glue. I stamped my greeting on the label with Mossy Meadow Ink and attached to card with dimensionals.
I colored the Textural Elements with Stampin’ Blends (dark Real Red and Crumb Cake) and colored the berries with Wink of Stella. Once dried I tucked them behind the tag using a glue dot to secure them in place. I tucked in two Gold Holly Leaves behind the Textural Elements using multipurpose glue to secure them to the card. On the left side of the tag, I attached another Gold Holly Leaf with a mini dimensional.
I made small bows with the gold thread from Simply Elegant Trim and attached to front of tag over the Textural Elements securing them with a glue dot. Lastly, I placed three Festive Pearls in the Soft Succulent color randomly on the card front.

It’s never too early to start working on making your Christmas cards. If I get enough people interested, I will put together a monthly stamp-a-stack at my home. During each month’s event we will make a series of cards that you can send to your friends and family for the upcoming season. They would be pleased as punch to get a handmade card from you – trust me! Drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know if you are interested.
In the meantime, if you have any questions regarding this project, the supplies you need to make a similar card, or taking advantage of the benefits of SALE-A-BRATION that are available now through August 31, 2022, please ask me. I am always here to help.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper. Until next time, stamp on my friends.
