We are in the Christmas mood for the next few months during our Saturday Blog Hops at Create with Connie & Mary. Today's project features "traditional Christmas colors", which is our theme and I've got a neat card to show you:

I created an Easel Card Fold using the Lots Of Labels Framelits Dies. Pretty neat huh?

All of the holly leaf bunches were stamped and hand-cut! And did you notice 
my red Pearl Jewels? I used a red Permaent marker to color them all!

This is what the card looks like at a sideways glance in the photo above and it does fold flat for mailing as you can see below:

There are so many steps to creating this card and I had to include more photo's to explain it so I created a downloadable direction sheet for you:


  • ·       Stamps: Holly Berry Happiness
  • ·       Inks: Emerald Envy
  • ·       Cardstock: Whisper White, Real Red, Emerald Envy, Mint Macaron
  • ·       Accessories: Pearl Jewels

  1. You know what I like about Stampin' Up... you can find SOooooOOooo much inspiration for each and every thing. What I don't like about Stampin' Up is I can't afford to buy it all!!!!! I really like your shapely holly card. I wondered about that holly sprig... thought you punched all those leaves out and pieced the together.

  2. I found this wonderful card of yours while "strolling" through a pinterest recommendation. Thank you so much for sharing your directions with us.
