How-To

  1. Die cut leafy pieces from GR-01 cardstock using a Leaflets die.
  2. Die cut tiny circles from R-01 cardstock using the Build-a-Critter: Owl/Kitty (circle) dies.
  3. Layer (2) leafy die cuts and (3) circle die cuts using Simple Adhesive.
  4. Adhere berry (circle) layer to the holly (leafy) layer with Simple Adhesive.
  5. Using markers and a white gel pen add shadows and highlights to each holly berry.

Optional: Punch a hole at the top and use as a tag, add foam tape to the back to create card candy, or use a pretty confetti sprinkle during the holidays.
