I love the simplicity of this Shimmery Noel Holly Berries design. This is the first design from my November Holiday Card Class. While this design would look great in Vanilla, it has an added lux feel by using Shimmery White Cardstock. Love it!
That’s right, the entire card is made with Shimmery White Cardstock. The base, the face layer, the “Noel” and even the Holly & Berries. The letters are from the Large Letters Framelits Die Set. The Holly & Berries image is from the Every Good Wish Stamp Set in the 2017 Holiday Catalog. I was inspired by a layout I came across on Splitcoast Stampers. My challenge was to create a similar layout using only Stampin’ Up! items. The original was square and all the letter were connected as one die. With our fun Large Letter Framelits Dies it lent itself to a long and narrow layout. Woohoo……one of my favs! Thank you so “SisterSandie” on Splitcoast Stampers.
The “holly berries” image was first inked with Old Olive and Real Red Markers, then stamped onto Shimmery White and finally fussy cut. Then the “sparkly berries”, Basic Jewels Rhinestones, were colored with the new Stampin’ Blends Cherry Cobbler (Dark) alcohol based marker. Sweet! Finally the colored “berries” were placed onto the stamped image and then adhered with a glue dot to the “O”.
The face layer was placed directly onto the card base giving a faux embossed look. Then the letters were popped with the new Mini Dimensionals. The new Mini Dimensionals are only 1/4″ wide, they are great for those small dimensional needs. Very cool! By tilting the “O” slightly it added a bit of whimsy to the overall design. My Type-A wanted all the letters straight but the tilt gave a slight quirkiness, like me. [giggle]
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you’ve enjoyed my clean and simple Shimmery Noel Holly Berries design. Have a great day!
