Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #170 - Holly

Monday, August 31, 2015

 Welcome to a new Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge!  Well, summer is just about over and it's time to really kick in gear and get those wonderful holiday cards going!  We hope to give you some inspiration - and always lots of fun - with the challenge!

Karren has brought us a lovely challenge:  create a Christmas card with holly on it!  This challenge runs through September 13.


 I used Papertrey Ink stamp/die Mistletoe and Holly.  Stamping the holly in a mossy green, I then covered the image piece with vellum, heat embossed the die cut holly in gold and added red glitter glue for the "berries".

What will YOU come up with?  Can't wait to see!   Be sure to see what the Design Team has to share with you: 



  1. Such a gorgeous card with a beautiful sentiment! Love your holly and the vellum together! Hope you have a wonderful week, Kathy! :)

  2. I love the gold holly leaves, Kathy! Very pretty! Have a great week!

  3. Very pretty! Love the vintage look the gold gives those holly leaves. The vellum softens the red and green of your back panel, and it's a wonderful look. Delightful Christmas card. Bev
