Holly Days

>> Tuesday, December 20, 2016

Hi Everyone,

I can hardly believe that Christmas is in just a few days.  As I get older, the holidays seem to fly by more quickly with each passing year..And can I be honest? I'm just now finishing up sending out my cards. Yikes!  I hope the post office isn't as behind on things as I am :)

Here's a card that I would sneak out even after Christmas Day has come and gone, since it celebrates this time of year and everything holly.  I'd write or stamp a Happy New Year inside and not feel bad at all :)

I came across a card in my stash that I made eons ago and used it as inspiration for today's card share.  I began with a cream colored card base and dry embossed the green background using my holly berry embossing folder.  I cut another piece of green cardstock slightly smaller and die cut a round window out of  it, and then adhered my stamped Triple Holly image behind it.  I place a larger piece of cream behind that and embossed it once more, adding a piece of ribbon before adhering it to the card.

To finish it off, I added the Holly Days Christmas Greeting that I simply trimmed to fit the space.  Be sure to visit DRS Designs for these stamps and many more!

Happy Holly Days to you and yours!

Beautiful, Karen! Love that embossed green bg & the holly leaves highlight by the circle cut out. Wonderful Christmas (or after) card.

Karin, some great embossing and a super sketch. The holly looks great in that cut-out. Great idea to case stash cards - I forget to even think about that option. Fun! Hugz
