For my first card I used the whole stamp -it's big!
I stamped it on some scrap paper and scanned it into my computer. Then I imported it into Silhouette Studio software and,tracing round the image, created a shaped card base cutting file, that I cut out on the Silhouette digital cutter. This is actually a one-layer card as I stamped the holly directly onto the shaped card base and coloured with Promarkers. I heat embossed the sentiment and added shimmer pen to the berries and gold gel pen highlights.

For my second card I used just part of the stamp , and even trimmed it further before mounting it onto a black card base.
I silver embossed the holly onto watercolour cardstock and then just had fun with pigment powder colours and water. (I used Brushos and Lindy's magicals, for the shimmer).
The sentiments I used on both cards were also from the holly stamp set - there are lots of great sentiments and I think I'll use them a lot.

These are great. I love the traditional colors and I really love the shaped card. At first glance I thought it might be a place card for the table. That would be great, too. [Bunny]

I am in love with this stamp and your cards! I love the art vibe of your second card and had to come by for a better look. It's always fun to make shape cards too and yours came out great! So happy you played along at the Twofer Challenge or I may have missed these!
Two stunning creations and I love the stamp.
Two lovely cards. The stamp is fabulous. Thanks for joining us at Make My Monday.
I am so loving these cards Marina. The stamped image is wonderful and love the large scale of it. The shaped card is unique and so very striking ....love them both x.
Fabulous cards, like the shaped card-so creative and the other card is stunning-beautiful coloring and fabulous background!
I pulled out all my holly stamps the other day and decided I am officially a collector and now you've made me want one more, Marina! I love this image both as a shaped card and with that artsy warm and vibrant powdered background!! Thank you very much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #22! Hugs, Darnell
Beautiful card. Thanks for joining us at Addicted to stamps and more
Two beautiful cards! The shaped card is amazing!
Very clever to make the shaped card. Both are very pretty!
I am not familiar with that company. Are they clear stamps? I have one clear set from Simon Says Stamp that required a bunch of trimming. I had never had to do that before.
I often feel that it's hard to make something new at Christmas but you've done a great job here. The Holly looks terrific and I love the touch how you've added a touch of gold with the sentiment. Thank you for joining us in our 'Traditional Christmas Colours ' challenge at Stamping Sensations and good luck. Sandra x

Lovely card! Thanks for playing along in our November Challenge at Country View Challenges!
I love your bold holly stamp and the cards you made. Thanks so much for joining our hand stamped challenge over at Country View xx
Earlier today I was thinking about hooking up my Silhouette again. Your holly sprig makes me want to actually clear a space for it! That's an incredible card! Love all the detail you've given it, and how wonderful that your sentiment fits perfectly. And your second card...boy those Brushos and Lindy's came out so amazing and vibrant. Great Christmas cards, and thanks so much for joining us at the Twofer Challenge. Bev
Love that shaped card... again I'm in awe of how you do that... And the colours in the other card are fabulous! I really like how you got part of the stamp but it's a bold statement.
This card is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing it with us at Make My Monday.
