Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly CAS

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s weekend going? I spent Friday and Saturday decorating and I still have a long way to go. My husband did get the whole outside done. This is the first time in years that he didn’t decorated on the coldest day of the season. I’ll be working all day today. Even though I had off yesterday, they asked me to come in to relieve the cashiers so they could take a lunch break.

For today I have a clean and simple card using just the basics, Stamp, Ink & Paper. I did sneak in a couple rhinestones too. I used the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card. This is a perfect card if you are a beginner stamper. Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by The Color Throwdown Challenge #621. Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the outline image of the holly from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on a Whisper White card front. I stamped the holly fill image from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink, stamped off once, over the outline image. I stamped the berry fill image from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Granny Apple Green in the center of the Whisper White card front. I adhered the card front to a Silver Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the matted card front to a Poppy Parade card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Coastal Cabana Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the holly images from the Joyful Holly stamp set the same as I did for the card front on the top and bottom corners of the panel. I adhered the Whiter White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the holly images from the Joyful Holly stamp set on the envelope front and flap the same as I did for the card front.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
