Good morning!
Today I am using left-overs from Thursday's card.  The parts I cut out/off.
Hey, never throw anything away, right?  The pieces I cut off and out from Thursday worked perfectly today.  My inside red piece was embossed with a holly design and I created an inside green frame as well with a green frame for my oval to finish it off.  I used green, red and black for my plaid with a yellow pen to add the tartan look.  My berries and pine boughs are plain today, no Stickles or Glossy Accents but I really love the color that shines through without it sometimes.
I love this sentiment stamp and the greenery with it!
Here is a second card I made with the Triple Holly 1004F and the new Deco Christmas New Year488G Just getting into the Christmas groove and colors!
My background is done with Color Burst water colors. The frame cut out and double matted. Then I stamped the outside panel with the Triple Holly.  The berries and the word Christmas are glittered.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
 Happy stamping!

These are so colorful & Christmasy, Robin! Love the plaid on the first & the mix of color around the greeting on the second. I also love that you used leftovers...I'm a big believer in doing that!
