Holly Jolly Christmas

Just a quick post to share with you a little Christmas card.

I die cut the little branches, coloured some with Promarkers and glittered the holly using double-sided sticky sheets. The die-cut bow was cut from red card and crystal lacquer applied, and stamped sentiment.

Thank you for looking and for your lovely comments which are very appreciated. x

Playing along at four challenges:
CAS Mix Up - Stamping + Glitter + your choice 
(I chose die-cuts, marker pens and crystal lacquer)

The Card Concept -  Photo inspiration
(Clean and layered style - inspired by wreath, colours and sparkle and shine

Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge - Christmas

Hi Sue, what a lovely wreath you've created for this card! I love the way you've glittered up the holly and that crystal lacquer on the bow really makes it "pop" From the stitched border to the lovely wreath and sweet sentiment, this is a terrific clean and simple creation. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

The shine on this wreath is just gorgeous. I love the traditional colors and the way you added the glitter. Seems like it is so tidy that way. I always have glitter everywhere when I use it. It does make my dog sparkle!

Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week Sue and sharing your wonderful card. What a great CAS card. The festive wreath takes center stage with all it's glittery bits, but the wonderfully fun sentiment and stitched edge on the top layer add even more appeal to this great card.
