Inlaid Die Cutting with Holly and Berry

Hello friends!
 Before we get into card-making, let's take a look at my backyard....
 Isn't Fall season grand? Now the leaves are all nearly gone after I took the photo.
I am glad to be back and share the latest Penny Black creation with you.

This following die Holly and Berry was out of stock for the longest time....and it is finally back in stock. You need to act fast before it's gone again.

As you can see this die is such an iconic Christmas image, it is easy to just color the die and you've got a great card! And that is pretty much what I did.

I took out some Distress Ink and colored the holly and berries accordingly. After I did all that, I realized that it would be neat to do inlaid die cutting. That way, you can pretty much create any background you like.

Merry wishes

I proceed to die cut the white card stock and made sure I left some proper space for the holly and berries. I did some ink-blending with Squeezed Lemon and Mustard Seed.
 I then fit everything back to its spot like a puzzle.


Other favorite mediums of mine will work great with coloring the Holly and Berry,
that is Zig Markers and Distress Oxide .

The sentiment I used is this set called "Love and Peace" has the most classy and beautiful font.

Beautiful card, Virginia. Those yellows around your inlaid holly & berries really makes them pop. And the berries look nearly edible (if they really weren't poisonous, lol!). So festive! Bev
