I'm so excited to see Loll and Bonnie's new CAS Christmas Challenge launching today! And their theme this month is Holly - I love holly and have several stamps and dies of it so I think I'll be playing along a lot this month! And I sure do love having all my cards ready to send when December rolls around - don't you?!
Here's my card.
I had these fun Mat Minis Holly and Berries from Wendy Vecchi/Stampers Anonymous - they are made of some kind of chipboard and coordinate with Wendy's Stamp It Stencil It Holiday Icons stamp/stencil set
I inked the stamp up with Archival Jet Black Ink and pressed the holly piece over the stamp (it's easier than trying to line up the stamp over the cut out!) I did the same thing with the berries piece and then sponged over the holly leaves with Wendy Vecchi Archival Leaf Green Ink and the berries with WV Archival Red Geranium Ink.
I embossed the background panel with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Wood Planks embossing folder and die cut the Holiday Frames from Simon Says Stamp. I adhered everything to the white card base.
I made four cards while I had the supplies out - so into my Christmas Box they go!
Here's a link to the CAS Christmas Card Challenge - we have until March 24th to get our holly cards linked up and we can enter 3 times!
