Holly


Last Christmas I made a lot of triple stamped cards - this holly one was one of my favourites, using a rubber stamp.
This year I found a lovely holly digi at Digi Darla Designs


These two images I coloured with Promarkers and then mounted them on red card.
But then what to do with them?

This is Seize the Sketch #8


Using this sketch I made the following:



I have some lovely Christmas red card in my stash - so I used this to fold a card base and cut one horizontal strip. I matted the starry card, also in my stash, on to the base and layered up as you see. The holly paper is from Papermania's 12 days of Christmas.
 I added red Candy Bonbon to the holly berries and a tag for the sentiment.
The stamp on this is a Stampin Up one.

I am submitting this to Seize the Sketch #8

The second sketch I am going to use is this one from Sketch~N~Scrap


Using similar elements, I made a Christmas red card base and layered it up as follows:


I am submitting this to Sketch~N~Scrap Card #13

Happy Crafting!
