My M&T from last weekend....
The holly stamp is cut out and then the berries are punched out. Using Direct-to-Paper method, completely ink entire image in Versamark, cover with Heat & Stick, melt and then cover with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. (That's why the image looks fuzzy on screen...but really pretty in person!) Mount the completed image onto Real Red CS and you'll have red berries! Inside we stamped saying "Wishing you the Happiest of Holidays" in Real Red Ink. Ribbon was held in place by using Mini Glue Dots.
HINT: Use tweezers from new Tool Kit to hold while melting Heat & Stick.

Nicely done! The glitter is cool - almost looks like microbeads in the picture!

Very nice. Your scan looks super. I love it.

Thanks for all your compliments. It's actually a very simple card...all dressed up! A couple ladies from the workshop bought everything they needed to make this card...and almost everyone bought Heat & Stick and/or Dazzling Diamonds.
The square with the holly was stamped in Old Olive Classic Ink onto USWhite CS; then used Versamark all over. Oh, and the tweezers held the square through the punched holes.
