Holly Jolly Card

 Well I was a happy camper on Saturday and was able to spend some time in the crafty room with minimal interruptions..that's an important factor when you are trying to create and finish projects.

I am not sure why I did it, but I decided to use greys, black and reds for a Christmas card. I admit that is not a usual color combo one thinks of when they think of Holiday cards, none the less I think it actually worked. I had to test stamp different color combos before I was happy with the grey color seen here.

I also signed up for the Christmas Card online class and they were using tags which I must admit I really don't really think of using too much so this was a bit of a challenge for me.

Holly Jolly stamp is from Papertrey Ink, The snowflake and floral leaf die are from Simon Says Stamp (SSS), the tag I had forever which is your basic office supply store tag, the banners I hand cut. The red twine is from Prima and the tiny silver bells can be found at Michaels or Beverley's. The background stamp is from Stampin Up and I used Sugar Wafer colored cardstock from SSS plus their Fog ink.
I did also glitter my snowflake because it just had to be done eventually. I really love my snowflake dies and you are going to see other projects using this die. In fact at one point I had to tell myself enough!


  1. Leslie, this is awesome! I love it. I would never have thought to use the leaf dies.

  2. I think your color palette made for a very striking holiday card, Leslie!

  3. I love this, I love the neutrals with that pop of red, and those little bells, I die!!

  4. Beautiful card! Love the embellishment cluster!

  5. Very pretty and masculine at the same time! :)
