The is for the TLC challenge to make your own stencil for a card and for the HYCCT challenge to use leaves. I made a single stencil square for the holly leaf and moved it around on the panel, using a sponge dauber to rub on the olive ink. The wreath was stamped with early espresso on vellum cs, then I inked the berries stamp with versamark and riding hood red, stamped over the other wreath and embossed with clear ep. I tore the vellum and another vellum piece to layer behind, to help hide the foam tape for popping it up. The gold metallic threads were attached to the holly panel and the vellum wreath piece was added on top. I got the idea for this card from one by the very talented, Laura Bassen. Here's her site. http://laurafadora.wordpress.com/

Great idea to use the holly leaf and make a Christmas card. Nice!
