The Boughs of Holly Saga and a 2019 Stampin' Up! Christmas Card

Boughs-of-holly-1Today's 2019 Christmas card project was a struggle for me!

I know...it's a simple card, what could the struggle be?

Well, I wanted to use the "boughs of holly" sentiment with some holly.  As you'll see in the video, this is my third try at the project.  To tell the truth, sometimes we (I) make things too hard.  You (I) can put too much thought into a creative project when most of the time it's just best to keep it simple.

Such was the case of the Boughs of Holly Saga.  Are you ready? Here you go...

Here are the supplies needed to create this card!  Just click the links to shop.  Thank you so much for your support of my business!

The more you work with this set, the more you see how versatile and beautiful it really is!  You really should get it if you haven't already!

The creative process started with the decision to emboss the Christmas Rose stamp in gold. Once that was done, choosing the remaining elements was easy.  This card reminds me of this Christmas card that I made with the retired but not forgotten Lovely As A Tree from years ago.

I recorded a quick video with a voice over for you to see the process.  All the details and the products used are listed below.

  • Base is in Very Vanilla cut a 4-1/4 x 11 and scored at 5-1/2.
