This was a bit of an experiment. I began with a Penny Black Holly stencil which I used to add embossing paste to some designer paper. When it was dry I added another sprig of holly, die-cut in vellum using my Penny Black Holly die. The embossing paste matches the vellum really well, so it's difficult to tell which is which in this picture.
It was finished with some pearls for the berries and a little tag for the sentiment.
