Holly Merry Xmas

I'm still busy making Christmas cards! Here is a card I'm going to enter into 2 challenges featuring holly

I wanted to keep my card clean and simple as the embossing folder is quite detailed. I added some clear Wink of Stella to the leaves for a subtle shine.

Materials used:-
Sizzix holly embossing folder
Stamps from Simply Homemade Magazine issue 48
Die - Lawn Fawn stitched circle
Inks - Memento bamboo leaves and Colorbox chalk rouge; clear Wink of Stella
Pearls and ribbon from stash

Thanks for visiting!


  1. So pretty Margaret. Love the holly embossed background ... adds so much texture. Thanks for playing along at Happy Little Stampers.

  2. I love the CAS look... don't you just love when you get a double bonus.. you got a magazine and a stamp... and you used it here beautifully. Thanks for joining us at Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge xx

  3. Love the delicate holly sprigs stamped all round this stitched circle. Wonderful re-emphasis of the Holly theme on the pretty white embossing as well, and all of it set off by the wonderful pop of red on the grosgrain border trim. Beautiful CAS & festive card. Just became your newest follower, and thanks for joining in with HLS Christmas Challenge for September's Holly theme.
