I stamped the holly image in Versamark and then the sentiment in PTI vintage cream ink. I think maybe another colour for a border between the two might be a good idea but I will leave it for now ...
Not sure if you can see this detail, but after the stamping of the background and sentiment, I took the linen impression plate for some subtle debossing. I like the look it leaves the paper.
For my next card, I grabbed my beloved Damask Snowflake die and cut it out in Rustic Cream card stock. I added a sentiment, popped it up on foam dots on top of some PTI patterned paper and went to town spritzing the whole front with Studio Calico shine mist. This stuff leaves the greatest sheen - subtle but so pretty in person.
