To get the decorative edge on the bottom I used Spellbinders largest Labels Seventeen and die cut just the bottom edge and kept the die on to trace with a white uni-ball pen. Don't drink too much coffee unless you want messy squiggly lines.
The holly was die cut using Sizzix Original die "Holly with Berries" #655532.
Don't throw out pretty shinny boxes or mail in bright colors. It's like chip board. The card measures 3'5" x 5.5".
Thanks for checking it out!

Angela this is brilliant. I love how you used the Die on only the bottom, and I love your leaves and berries! Also love that you re-used a normal every day item like a box for this - my creative wheels are turning right now!! Brilliant! And funny you mentioned the coffee thing - I love a cup in the morning but more than one and my little hands do get a bit jittery LOL. Hugs to you!

Angela, this is a little out of the box for you, but in an awesome way. I think you could embrace any style and still make it look great. The bold colors and image work well together and I love the idea of using the die to give a unique shape to the bottom of the card.
