Hi everyone, there’s a bit of everything on this Christmas card, stamping, colouring, paper piecing and dry embossing! I love the design of this new embossing folder from Crafters Companion, and the holly matches the holly sprig on the stamp.

Christmas card with stamped paper pieced Christmas date, embossed holly background and gingham ribbon
I started with a 12.5cm cream blank card, cut a 12cm square piece of dark green card and embossed the holly flourish design onto it, then tied a length of green gingham ribbon around it, taped it in place, tied it in a simple knot and trimmed the ends. 
I stamped the Christmas Date stamp onto cream card using black ink, then cut it out and glued it to dark red card. I stamped it again on tartan paper, cut out the numbers 2 and 5 and glued them over the stamped numbers on the cream card. 
I used a white gel pen to add a dot of colour to each of the snowflakes and use Copic markers to colour the holly and berries.
I used adhesive foam pads to fix the stamped panel to the card front to lift it above the ribbon and add some extra dimension to the card.
I am very happy with the finished result, I like the traditional colours and the extra touch that the tartan paper brings. Thank you for visiting, I hope you like it too. All supplies are linked below.
