Here's how to surprise your hard-to-buy-for friend this Christmas

Hi fellow crafters. Do you have a hard to buy for friend and you are not sure what what to get them for Christmas this year? Today's project will help you solve that problem. I will be using my Boughs of Holly paper and Holly Berry stamp set. Shall we get started?
Nothing suits this project better than the Boughs of Holly paper. These beautiful papers embrace the classic emerald green and rich reds we love to see at Christmastime with poinsettia, holly, and evergreen motifs. I am going to use this particular pattern for my project as it will be the perfect match.

Celebrate the season with the elegant Leaves of Holly stamp set. From simple touches to elaborate designs, garnish your seasonal cards, tags, and gift boxes with this classic Christmastime foliage. You can stamp either the base leaf stamp or detailed leaf stamp alone for quick greenery. Or take advantage of the Two-Step design to create images with added texture and dimension. Try out different color combinations on your leaves and berries to create beautiful boughs of holly. Make beautiful crafts, “From Our Home to Yours” and spread the “Peace & Joy” of the season.
