Day 7 of the 30 Days of Christmas: Merry Christmas Holly

Today is Day 7 of the 30 Days of Christmas, and I am pleased to share one of the Christmas cards that I am making for my friends and family. Note that i said "one of" my cards -- that's because I usually make 10 - 15 each of 5 or 6 designs -- I just would get horribly bored making 100 of any one thing!

I also love red and green on Kraft paper. I find the combination lovely. The card above uses the Vintage Botanical Holly stamp for the background, with the Merry Christmas stamp as the focal image. The stamp was colored with red and green glitter pens, and highlighted with Red Dimensional Pearls. I regret not using my Red Berry Nuvo drops for the berries -- I am very disappointed the red dimensional pearls flattened out on this sample. The cards I am sending to my family and friends will  use the Nuvo drops, and will have perfectly domed berries.

In any case, here is a close-up of the glittered coloring:

Remember, all of the Christmas stamps are 25% off through December 14th. Simply add them to your cart and the discount will be applied at checkout.

Until next time:

Wow, this is truly beautiful. The Merry Christmas stamp is used all the time by myself. I made 25 gift tags and coloured them in with two tones--red and green. I love how the sentiment pops over the holly. Wow, you make a lot of cards. I made 60 and thought that was a lot.

Love this card. I also like red and green on kraft. Thanks for sharing.
