This is the Holly Wreath Stamp - I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Copic Markers. The coloring is very loose and not precise and that seems fitting with the sketched look of the image.
The word die is double cut - gold foil is layered over gold glitter paper.
I couldn't get the layout out of my head so I made a second card - very similar to the first, with a large stamped image simply secured with some washi tape.
Again, the image is loosely colored - filling in enough to let your mind complete the image.
