How To Make Holly and Berry Embellishments!

I am a BIG fan of using Stampin’ Up! punches in my projects!  So it goes without saying that if I can find a way to use them so that I don’t have to cut something out by hand, I am going to jump on it.

Why not make your own holly and berry embellishment using just two punches.  The small oval punch and the 3/8″ circle punch from the Merry Mini Punch Pack Trio.

Holly and Berry

This card can go together very quickly and easily using your Season Of Style Designer Washi Tape, Merry Christmas from More Merry Messages, and a holly and berry embellishment.

How did I make the holly and berry embellishment you ask?!

Supplies Needed:


1.  Punch two small ovals with Old Olive cardstock.
