Holly Jolly Christmas

Hi everyone!!

       I am back to share with you another card I made using stamps from I Brake For Stamps! I wanted to share this recessed frame card that I made using the wonderful Fall/Winter Collage Sheet!

I am always looking for ways to use a stamp in more than one way, this helps me to save money and get more mileage out of my stamps! When I saw the Fall acorn collage stamp, I knew instantly that I could use it for Christmas!!

Here is the image before...


and after......



I learned how to do the recessed card frame from Tracy!


Here's how I got the look....
I cut a piece of Very Vanilla Stampin' Up! card stock to 3 X 4 5/8
I stamped my Fall/Winter Collage Sheet image using versamark and then heat embossed it using gold embossing powder.
I colored in the leaves and acorns using the Old Olive Stampin' Write marker by Stampin' Up!
Then I inked around the edges using Walnut Stain Distress Ink by Ranger
Last but not least I added the red half back pearls as berries for my Holly!

I hope that you will give it a try!!
