Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly Z-Fold

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s week going? We’re already halfway through and on our way to the weekend.

Today’s card is another one that we made at our in-person quarterly meeting this past Sunday. This one was designed by Carol Buckalew who is from Delaware. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly Z-Fold 1

I used the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly Bundle along with the Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly Z-Fold 2

I started by adhering 2 panels of Boughs of Holly DSP to the first 2 sections of the Cherry Cobbler card base.

Using the Holly Berry Dies I cut 2 solid leaves and 2 detailed leave from panels of Brushed Metallic Paper. I cut the solid berries from a panel of Poppy Parade and the detailed berries from a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I cut the pine boughs from panels of Basic White and Soft Succulent cardstock. I adhered a panel of Boughs of Holly DSP to an Evening Evergreen mat. I adhered a piece of Gold 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon to the layered panel using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the detailed holly leaves to the solid holly leaves using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the detailed berries to the solid berries using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Holly leaves to the panel over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the berries to the bottom of the leaves using Glue Dots. I snuck the pine boughs under the holly leaves adhering them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment using the Holly Berry Dies. I adhered the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Festive Pearls to the panel. I adhered the collage panel to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left half.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiments from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered a panel of Boughs of Holly DSP to the Basic White panel. I adhered the layered panel to the inside of the Cherry Cobbler card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Boughs of Holly DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.
