A Sprig of Holly (TSSC#5)

“Holidays” is the theme at The Stampsmith Challenge Blog.
By now any visitors to this Blog will be well acquainted with “Holly” as she is a much used stamp.
This time I used the image to create a tag for a pillow box. As “Holly” is such a good size stamp there is ample room to write or stamp a message.
As the pattern paper wasn’t very thick I adhered it to two sheets of white cardstock to create thickness and then made the pillow box. Red Deko Ice (available from The Altered Element) was used to edge the stamped image. A generous length of deep ruby red ribbon was used to wrap around the pillow box and a sprig of holly added (decor holly but real holly would be a very special touch).

We would love to see your Holiday creations over at TSSC Blog. If you don’t own any stamps from The Stampsmith you are still in luck as this challenge welcomes stamps from any company. I am sure you are all busy with Christmas creations whether cards, tags, decorations or packaging so why not upload your creations at TSSC Blog. A $10 gift voucher for The Stampsmith store is up for grabs, the winner  will be announced on 15th Decemeber. Good Luck. Lynne x
