Merry Christmas Holly

I  used one of the pretty new dies from the latest Simon Says Stamp release, Holly Fanfare, combined with a Simon sentiment and made another Christmas card...
I embossed the die's images onto the card panel to make adhering pieces onto the panel easier, then die cut the holly and berries in green and red.  I adhered one layer of each to the card, and glossy accented the berries.  The sentiment was stamped with versamark and gold embossed.  Here's a close up...
These holly dies are so invaluable for Christmas cards...have others to show you using the holly dies from today and yesterday...stay tuned:):)!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  1. Gorgeous, Lisa, and I love that you embossed with the dies first -- such a brilliant help! The glossy berries give off a wonderful pop, and I'm really enjoying that delightful background (textured cs or ef?)!

    2. It's beautiful, adds a lot to the design, yet doesn't detract from it. Thanks for taking the time to answer my question.

  3. This simple background is not overpowering and lets the holly become the focal point, so very pretty. 🌲
