Holly Jolly Christmas

Helloooooo Saturday!
Back again on the Dies R Us Blog to share another Holiday card with you, tis the season and all!
I used this gorgeous Holly die from Cheery Lynn, Holly Leaf.  Big and bold and beautiful!  I cut this die twice, once in chip board and then in colored card stock.  In this manner it adds a bit of depth and firmness.  I then mounted it on a Spellbinders Classic and Looped Circle die cut.

Die-Namics Open Simply Scallop Border die to split the card front. Sentiment stamped in Always Artichoke ink and Holly images stamped in Versa Mark ink from the Power Poppy Holly Golightly set, as is the sentiment.  White Marker for berry accents.  Studio Calico Designer Paper, Wonderland and Gingham Ribbon to complete my card.

  4. This is so stinkin' cool. I love the patterned papers you used, would never have thought they go together! You never cease to amaze me with your beautiful collages.....that's what all your cards are, collages. The holly as the focal is genius and I love the scallops around the circle and also the border. It all works together perfectly. Just awesome. Oh, and I love that dark green too.
