Season’s Greetings Border

Step 1: Cut a 12″ x 3-1/4″ strip of argyle designer paper for the base. Cut a 12″ x 2-1/2″ strip of white with teal dots tonal paper and adhere on top. Cut a 12″ x 1-3/4″ strip of gold ornaments designer paper and adhere on the top.

Step 2: With the Holly Punch, punch three holly shapes from green eucalyptus tonal paper and again with navy blue eucalyptus tonal paper and teal dots designer paper. Adhere to the border. Top each with a sticker as the “holly berry.”

Step 3: Adhere a music notes border sticker with Foam Squares. Add embellishments and stickers with Foam Squares.

Deck the Halls Border

Step 1: Using the 12-inch Trimmer with the Stamping Blade, cut a 12″ x 2-3/4″ strip of holly leaves and berries designer paper for the base. With the 12-inch Trimmer and the Straight Blade, cut a 12″ x 2-1/8″ strip of White Solid Cardstock and mount on top. Cut a 12″ x 2″ strip of red holly berries designer paper and adhere on top.

Step 2: Adhere a branch laser-cut border to the border. Place holly sprigs stickers along the branch.

Step 3: With the Holly Punch, punch three holly shapes from Dark Green Solid Cardstock. Using the larger circle cutout from the Piece by Piece Mini Trio Punch Set, punch several circles from Firecracker Shimmer Solid Cardstock. Adhere to the holly with a Precision Point Adhesive Pen. Mount on the border as shown.

Peace & Joy Card

Step 2: Cut a 4-3/4″ x 4-3/4″ piece of Christmas florals designer paper. Using the outside edge of the smallest Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Blue Blade, cut a circle from gold ornaments designer paper. Adhere to the Christmas florals piece as shown. Trim off the excess and mount on the front of the card.

Step 3: With the Holly Punch, punch five holly shapes with Dark Green Solid Cardstock. Using the larger circle cutout from the Piece by Piece Mini Trio Punch Set, punch several circles from Firecracker Shimmer Solid Cardstock. Adhere to the holly with a Precision Point Adhesive Pen.

One thought on “Behold Beautiful Boughs With These Holly Crafts: Christmas Scrapbook Borders and Card

  1. Oh, my, do I need to pick just ONE??? My answer is I love all three, and am sure I’ll make all three! I was thinking that the former promo Branch Border Punch would be a good alternative to using the laser cut branch on the Deck the Halls border, too…
    Thanks, Krislyn, for these great ideas.
