Holly Christmas Card


I have matt and layered my 8x8in cream card with red and green mirror card and then cream embossed card. 

I used a Crafters Companion create a card with interchangeable sentiment die to make the decorative element. I cut the fancy element in cream card and mounted it onto green mirror card so the holly is green. I die cut the sentiment in red mirror card and added it to cream card and then red mirror card before attaching that to the centre of the design. I cut the holly  on the sentiment again in green card to add to the element. I paper pieced the bow element with red card. I completed my card with red tonic nuvo drops on the create a card element and red gems on the embossed card on the berries of the design.
