It’s never too early to start thinking about making your Christmas cards!  Here’s a simple, yet elegant card to duplicate.

The Gold Foil Paper die cut using one of the frames from the Ornate Layers Die set and Gold Embossing adds a touch of elegance to this card.


After stamping the sprig with Old Olive Ink, I went back over the little berries using the fine tip of Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blend. This just adds a little more pop of color.
