Noel: Dreamweaver and Woodware Collaboration

Greetings! It's that time of year again! The time when we inspire crafters on both sides of the "pond" with a mix of bothDreamweaver and Woodware UK* products for the holidays! Six days, SIX, of beautiful, elegant, merry, cute, artsy, and craftsy projects to have you heading out to your local stores or internet sites to buy these goodies immediately!
Of course, there will be prizes as well. Three prize packages will be given to three commenters during this week's posts on the team's blogs, including five stencils and one nested die set. You can have an opportunity to win these goodies by leaving some holiday sweetness for each team member posting each day, to be one of the three winners for the week. Here are the team members that are inspiring you today:

Alison Heikkila (that's me!)

And here's my project for today:

I started by stamping the Noel sentiment from Woodware's Curly Festive Greetings set on white cardstock with red ink. Then I covered it with a layer of Dreamweaver's Translucent Embossing Paste  and sprinkled some clear glitter on top. I set it aside to dry. The I cut out a few Holly Leaves from the new Holly and Swirls die (DL3005). 

I cut apart several of the leaves so that I could glue them just where I wanted. I added the berries, and a bit of Frosted Lace Stickles to some of the leaves. Just to mimic the clear glitter on the sentiment. This was a nice, simple card, that anyone that is new to stamping or die cutting can do. Or, if you need to make many of the same card. This would be a fairly quick one to do. Thanks for visiting me today. Have an inspiring day!
