Holly Flourishes (posted by Judith)

Hi Folks, here is a quick little Christmas card using the new Fancy Flourishes clear stamp set. I used the holly flourish to create the impression of a tree branch, by repeatedly stamping the image along one edge of a piece of kraft card. I used a white pen to add a 'shadow' to look like snow on the branches. I stamped the word 'Joy' from the Bold Christmas Words clear stamp set in the top corner, using red ink.

I made a robin by die cutting a bird from dark brown foil and colouring the stomach area with red alcohol ink. I added a little gem for the eye. Finally, I added a red and green layer of card behind the design.

Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx


  1. Beautiful combinatiojn! Inky greetings, Gerrina

  2. That is so lovely Judith. I love the colours and the branches just pop.

  3. Your little bird is a delight on his snow laden branches of holly - love the white pen work. Your matting really picks out the colours & using kraft as the background adds such an original touch to these traditional images.
    I love the way the red "Joy" echoes the colour of little robin's breast.
