Joyful Holly Trio for Facebook Live

Christmas cards and gift box created with Stampin' Up's Joyous Holly stamp set. #Stampin' Gala, #handmade cards, #box

I love creating projects for my Facebook Live!!  This week, I designed two Christmas cards and a nice size, gift box.   All three projects are created with the Joyful Holly stamp set.

Every Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. EST, I create products for my followers live on my Facebook Group Page, Stampin’ Gala Stampers Group.  If you missed it, you can see it here.

The first project is a beautiful Christmas card.

The sentiment on this card is from the Christmas is Gleaming stamp set.

The Joyous Holly stamp set is a “two step” set.  This means that to complete the image, it has two parts.  In this set, the outline of the holly is step one and the inside of the holly leaves is step two.  If you haven’t tried this type of stamp, give it a try.  It is really fun to see it come together.

Both cards were stamped first.  Next, I embossed the image with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  The texture adds interest to the project.

Finally, the box holds a Mrs. Field’s cookie.  I purchased the cookies the Dollar Tree.  They come packaged three to a pack.

Joyful Holly Slimline Christmas Card

Slimline Christmas Card created with the Joyful Holly Stamp Set and the Joy Dies.  #Stampin' Up, #Stampin' Gala, #Handmade Cards, #Heat Embossing, #Stampin' Blends Markers

I had so much fun creating my first slimline card.  I used the Joyful Holly Stamp Set and the Joy Dies.  I heat embossed the images with Gold Embossing Powder and colored them in with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

The finished size of this card is 3-1/2 X 8-1/2.  If you don’t want to create your own envelope, you can purchase them at an office supply store.  The size that fits this style card is the #9 envelope.

This style card is perfect for Christmas.  It is just the right size to tuck in a monetary gift.  

Here are the products that I used to create this beauty.
