Today’s card is a result of a bunch of trial and error. I was trying to go for an evergreen look, or holly maybe, but working with what tools I have, this is what I came up with. First I started with a card base that is a little smaller than usual, 4 3/4″ x 7 1/2″, so that the folded card measures 3 3/4″ x 4 3/4″. The piece of brown card stock is 3″ x 4″. To allow room for the leaves, I stamped the sentiment in the lower right corner using craft white ink. Then I took the edge of the ink pad and swiped it along the edges of the paper. I’ve seen this done on black cardstock for a chalkboard look. Once that was fully dry, I cut three of the Little Leaves branches and arranged them at the top corner of the paper. I played around with their positioning, trimming off a few leaves so the sentiment wasn’t covered up, and glued them down. The berries were punched using a hole punch, and I added a simple linen thread bow to the top corner. The panel is raised up on foam adhesive. Thanks for stopping by today!
