The Holly and the Ivy – quick christmas card

Hi everyone,

Crafty Individuals have released a new Christmas Holly and Ivy stamp set “Christmas Florals” CI 556 which has been designed by DT member Isabelle.

This stamp set is what I would class as a “must have” . Such a great set to have in your stash. A perfect one to have if you are new to stamping. The stamps are great for the main focal piece or on the background or used as single elements as embellishments. Due to their line work they mix and match with most other stamps you may already have and compliment any scene or card design you are creating. They really are supper set. There are poinsettias and ivy leaves in the set, Just by changing the colours of these, you can use them through out the year and not just for Christmas.

I stamped the pine cones in each corner and purposesly stamped off the edges. I added the Noel to the center and job done. I used coated card stock and black Staz-on to stamp the images. I coloured the images with diluted ink and a paint brush.

I don’t normally do this but thought I would add the Crafty Individuals promotional image just to show what stamps are in this set.

Thank you for looking.

Take care,

Flo x

    I adore this Flo with the beautiful foliage and cones stamped to form a frame and then a seasonal word in the centre. Such pretty soft colouring too. Gorgeous! x
