  • Cuttlebug embossing folders – “Holly Ribbons” and “Swiss Dots”
  • Stamps – Stamper’s Anonymous Tim Holtz collection – “Holly Bough Sprig”
  • Sentiment stamp – Rubber Soul “Holiday Whimsical”
  • Berries made with Glass Effect Gel “Carmine” by Viva Décor
  • Copic markers E81 – Ivory, G43 – Pistachio
  • Ranger Distress Stain – Picket Fence
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Distress inks – Bundled sage and Tea dye

I was inspired to make this card this week during Day 3 of the Online Card Classes “Holiday Card Workshop” that I’m currently taking. The background, which is a dry embossing technique, was made with the different combination of supplies: Copic markers and Picket Fence Distress Stain applied to an embossed piece. I created the translucent holly berries with my Glass Effect Gel pen by Viva Décor. I blended some Distress inks around the edges of all the pieces to tie the colors together, attempting to match up my Copic colors with my Ranger Distress Ink colors! Thanks for visiting today.
