Holly Berry Background with Melissa Miller

Catherine Christmas, CP Designs, CPD Ink

Hi everyone! I'm Melissa  and I'm thrilled to be guest posting on Catherine's blog. Today I have a card to share that I created using products from the Winterhaven Stamp of Approval collection.

I started by creating my own patterned paper using Catherine's white card stock and images from the ‘Tis the Season stamp set. I stamped the holly leaves using Grass Skirt ink then added some of the holly berry clusters in Rockin' Red ink to fill in the white spaces between the leaves.

For the sentiment, I stamped one of the greetings from the Here We Come A-Caroling stamp set on a strip of vellum using VersaMark ink and then heat embossed it using Metallic Gold Rich embossing powder from WOW!

Using the candle image from the ‘Tis the Season stamp set I creates a border along either side of a white card base. I used the Misti tool to stamp it repeatedly along the edge using VersaMark ink then heat embossed it using the same gold embossing powder.

To assemble the card, I wrapped the vellum sentiment strip around the holly leaves panel adhering it to the back side of the panel. I then adhered that panel to the card base.

I hope you've enjoyed my card today.
