Hello everyone! It's time for another challenge over at Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge, and this time our theme is
I love holly and always try to have some in the house around Christmas time. It is perfectly behaved in that it lasts for a good long time in water but starts to look bad soon after Christmas so you don't feel bad throwing it away. Unlike the poinsettia plant we had last year which outstayed it's welcome by hanging around until after Easter, when my husband finally agreed that it could go in his greenhouse without snuffing it, and I could get some spring flowers in! I came up with this card
I stamped the holly from Penny Black 'A Wish for Peace' transparent stamp set and coloured it with Copic pens. I coated the leaves with WOS glitter pen but it is hard to see in the photo.
The sentiment was stamped in scarlet jewel ink and is from PTI Over Under Easy Holiday Additions, and as I wanted to keep the design very simple, I just cut the panel with the curved die from MFT Blueprints 14, and matted it onto some scarlet jewel card cut with the stitched square from the same set.
This was mounted onto a white card base with foam tape and finished off with a scattering of green glitter dots.
Why not pop over to the Happy Little Stampers blog to see the inspiration that the Design Team have for you, and join in with us this month.
Thanks for stopping by
