I'm on a roll with the Christmas cards for the 2009 Christmas Card Challenge. I have my March cards finished and it's only Feb 1.
I used my CB holly wreath die cut and embossing folder combo. I tried various ways of adding color to this - outlining with markers, sponging, stickles, but I finally decided that I liked it best in all white with just a dot of stickles on each of the holly berries. I've had the patterned paper for years (extra points for using my stash). I used a Fiskars border punch to create the red layer.
Thanks for taking a peek.
