Welcome to week 5 of the Heart of Christmas. This week I have a Boughs of Holly card for you that with a brush metallic card stock and your Cut & Emboss folder you are good to go!

So for my card today, I have used an Evening Evergreen card base and with the Brushed Metallic Cardstock in gold I have layered that under the Boughs of Holly DSP.

I decided I wanted to make a wreath so I took out the Holly outline dies from the Holly Berry Dies and cut them out in the Gold Brushed Metallic Cardstock and just adhered them with a little liquid glue on the stem end so they sat up a bit.

Under each holly leaf I cut out a copper brushed metallic cardstock pine needles. Here you can see I used a strip of the gorgeous Boughs of Holly DSP on the inside of my card to decorate.

In the centre of the card I have adhered the sentiment Peace & Joy that I have heat embossed in gold and fussy cut and tagged out with my papersnips. I put a double mini dimenional under them to give them a bit of height because of the holly leaves. Under the sentiment I have frayed some Shimmer Ribbon and of course we need a little bling so a little red and gold pearls from the Red and Green adhesive-backed pearls to finish off the card.

Wow, cool idea to use the holly leaves in a wreath, they look great in gold too.

Tina said...

Your golden holly wreath looks amazing! I love the texture and layering on your card.

CHRISTINE BLAIN said...

Gosh, this is beautiful, Sharon! I LOVE your idea to use the die-cut holly leaves to make a wreath. They look fabulous in gold, on that gorgeous background paper.

Cathy Proctor said...

Snap my friend on the DSP and the stamp bundle! I love your holly wreath and I love that our cards are so different.

Andrea said...

Beautiful card Sharon. I love the way you have used the gold holly leaves to create a wreath. The flagged sentiment is great in the centre of the wreath too. Xxx

Such an elegant card Sharon and the golden wreath looks wonderful with the beautiful paper as the backdrop.

Michele Taylor said...

I love your beautiful wreath card Sharon. I have looked at that piece of DSP a number of times and thought it rather dull. The inclusion of the brushed metallic gold really makes it shine. Very clever.

Kate Morgan said...

What a great idea to use those lovely holly leaves in a wreath formation, Sharon. So pretty with the darker DSP behind it, great design!
