This Christmas card is a CASE of a card that can be found in the 2019 Holiday Catalogue
The Stampin' Up! catalogues are a wonderful source of inspiration.  This card is a CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) of one of the cards on page 30 of the Holiday Catalogue.  

I have, however, reversed the layering process on the card.

Using the Stitched Rectangles dies makes it simple to create the double frame on this Christmas card
To the centre of the Old Olive base card, I adhered a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock that I had copper heat embossed with the greetig.  TIP:  Just like Stampin' Up, I omitted the ampersand at the beginning of the greeting by temporarily covering it with a piece of washi tape when inking with the Versamark.

I cut a rectangle of Copper Foil and removed the centre with the second largest Stitched Rectangle die.  I then used the largest Stitched Rectangle die to remove the centre of the top layer of Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Paper.

One of the baubles is clear heat embossed on Old Olive cardstock and the other is copper heat embossed on Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  Both are sponged around the edges (getting lighter towards the centre) with Old Olive ink.  They are cut out with the coordinating Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack.

The Holly is copper heat embossed onto Very Vanilla cardstock and then watercoloured with Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive inks before fussy cutting.

Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!
