I am winding down on the Christmas cards….just a few more to do. The embellishment on this one sort of just happened. I trimmed a piece of Deck the Halls paper to fit the front of my card, and when I flipped over the small piece that remained, the little flourish and partial holly leaf was what was left. I thought it looked kind of neat---already centered---so I stamped a sentiment from Come to Bethlehem on another scrap, punched it out with my extra-large oval punch and trimmed off the bottom edge to line up against the line on the DP….it sort of looks as if it’s tucked down in there, doesn’t it? I added a scallop oval of another scrap, sponging everything, and layering it behind. Oh, do you want to see the card? Here it is!
I cut out a piece of holly and popped it up; the final embellishment was some pearls that I colored with Copic RV99…a fairly good match for the DP. Here’s the inside:
