Hi everyone, one of my favourite symbols of Christmas and winter time is holly, so this Woodware Holly Panel stamp set ticks all the boxes for me. With four different stamps in the set you have more than enough to make a whole card.

Woodware Holly Panel clear stamp set

For this card I have used two of the stamps, the main holly panel and the Christmas sentiment. There are so many ways you could stamp and colour this but for my first card I decided on simple black un-embossed stamping and colouring with Copic markers, in traditional Christmas colours.

Christmas card using the holly panel clear stamp set with Nuvo drops and ribbon
I started with a 6in x 6in white blank card, I cut layers from dark red and green card, adhered them together then tied red organza ribbon around them with a bow to the right hand side. I adhered the layers to the card blank.
I stamped the holly panel twice on white card, I coloured one of them with Copic markers and added red Nuvo drops for the berries. I inked the background, cut the panel out and glued it on to dark red card. I cut two holly leaves from the other stamped panel and coloured them with the same Copic markers.
I stamped the Christmas sentiment on to a 5cm square of white card and inked it with the same colours as the holly panel background. I mounted this on dark red card and adhered it to the card front below the organza bow. I used the cut out holly leaves to decorate one corner of the sentiment panel using a pre-made Nuvo drop dot for a holly berry to cover the ends of the holly leaf stems. (Click here for information on how to make Nuvo Drop dots for later use).
I am really happy with this card, I like the colours and the way the Nuvo Drops add some dimension and shine in a subtle way. I hope you like it too. Thanks for taking the time to visit. All supplies are linked below.
