Before the New Year arrives, I wanted to share with you one more Christmas card that features the Outlines Rubber Stamp Holly Background. This stamp is from the Outlines Rubber Stamps Company that went out of business a few years ago. I love the company’s stamps, and was disappointed about it closing. I am grateful that I got several of the company’s stamps before it closed.
I made this card for a Clean and Simply Challenge, CAS398, on Splitcoaststampers. The hostess of the challenge asked for a one layer card made with one stamp and one sentiment, and my card is just that. Additionally, I used a score board to add score lines on all sides of the card. I love how the card turned out, and so did several others. The card was a favorite card of several Splitcoaststampers artists.
I used several Copic Sketch Markers to color the holly and berries, adding glossy accents onto the berries. I added red dots around the card using Nuvo Crystal Drops. I used a blue Copic Sketch Marker to color around the image, and stamped the sentiment using Stampin’ Up! (SU) Real Red Ink. The sentiment is from an old SU stamp set, Jolly Old Saint Nick.
Show some love by leaving comments. I love reading them!
