Today I’m starting to share sneak peeks from the shows that I have on Monday with the Paper Cuts Christmas Word Edgers. There are 6 in the collection so we should get to them all by Sunday 😀.

Here’s your sneak peek for today featuring the Holly and the Ivy Edger –

Paper Cuts Holly & the Ivy 1

I started by creating a Bargello background, a finer one than I usually make. I cut Antique Gold Pearl Card, True Red Textured Card and Clover Textured Card into 1cm strips and glued them to a piece of Copy Paper, alternating the colours. I trimmed off the excess copy paper and straightened my edges and then trimmed into 1cm strips going the other way.

Bargello Strips

I glued these strips to another piece of copy paper, offsetting them so that the colours stepped down.

I cut the Paper Cuts Holly and the Ivy Edger out of Coconut White Card and glued it to my background. I made a frame using 2 adjacent Double Stitched Ovals and added it to my design using a couple of layers of CE Mounting Cushion. I cut the next sized Oval out of Coconut White Card.

Holly and the Ivy Bargello

I matted onto Coconut White Card, True Red Textured Card, Clover Textured Card, Antique Gold Card and another piece of Coconut White.

I cut the Ivy Corner Die from the Wedding Arch and Columns out of Coconut White Card 4 times and added the die cuts to my corners.
