A Holly Jolly Christmas

It's warmed up considerably around here so it feels strange to be doing Christmas cards. I am sure going to be happy in December though when I have a whole pile of cards to mail!

Today's card is for this week's Merry Monday (#96) challenge to include holly on a project. I went very clean and simple using the CAS-ual Fridays Merry Kiss-mas stamp set. I started out by stamping the round sentiment using Archival Ink in Vermillion and then cut out with a Spellbinders Nestie. I stamped the holly image in the center of the sentiment and colored it with Copic markers. I stamped the holly image a second time and after coloring with Copics, I fussy cut out. I layered it over the center holly image, using dimensional dots on the tips to give the leaves some lift. I substituted Kaisercraft pearls for the berries. The patterned paper came from the Webster's Pages It's Christmas pad.

Products: CAS-ual Fridays stamps, Webster's Pages dp, Kaisercraft pearls, Michael's ribbon, Archival and Memento inks, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Copic Makers
Copics: G20, G24, G28
