I'm decking the cards with more holly.
I used my favorite holly die from Penny Back and die cut from a scrap of mixed media paper.
I lay the die on a plastic lid (half of a broken stamp case) and used
Zigs and a water brush to add color.
The woodgrain background and sentiment square were cast offs waiting to be used.
While I was playing with holly, a friend brought me the die I used for the second card.
I colored it in the same way and added it to an dry embossed piece.
We're using holly on our CAS (Clean And Simple) Christmas cards this month at
We're trying to get a jump on our Christmas cards so we're not
in panic mode when it's time to send them.
We'd love for you to join us.
The challenge is open until the 24th.
