These cards were made with holly border punch. If I cut all the way across the piece of cardstock, it leaves just a narrow strip with the holly punched out. I decided to leave a space at both ends so that it would stay on the larger piece. The Merry Christmas stamp is by Denami and embossed in gold. The gold holly on the left is a metallic sticker. The red and green holly is a two stamp set by Magenta. The solid green and red are stamped first, then the outline of the leaves is stamped in black ink, using a Stamp-a-ma-jig.
