Holly card

This is my first Christmas card of 2016! I was inspired by Chriss Blagrave's lovely CAS card on Muse Christmas Visions. I liked the layout with the holly at the bottom of the card and the sentiment above it. I also liked the embossing.  I applied some gilding wax to the embossed panel and mounted it on some copper card to provide some definition. This is certainly a very clean and simple card!

Materials used:-
Embossing folder and stamp from Simply Homemade Magazine issue 48
Treasure gold gilding wax
