For my stop on the hop, I’m sharing this clean and simple holiday card I created using items from this amazing release!
This card features the Hedge Berries Embossing Folder and Cutting Die, along with the new Pawsitively Velvet cardstock. I just can’t help but love all of the dimension on this card!
To make this card, I embossed two panels of white card stock – one I trimmed down for the background and one I colored and cut for the berry branch.
I used Distress Oxides (colors listed in the supplies list below) to color the main branch and then cut it out with the coordinating die that comes with the embossing folder.
I then cut out my “Joy” sentiment from the new red velvet cardstock and adhere it to several layers of cardstock that I had die cut for the shadow.
With all my card elements ready, I began assembling my card by first using foam adhesive to attach my embossed panel to my card front. I decided on the placement for the branch and adhered it to the embossed panel, then adhered my sentiment.
For some added sparkle (and because I just can’t get enough of these), I added Pink Fresh Studio Ruby Glitter Drops over the berries.
