Holly Jolly Christmas

Hi everyone,

Today's card combines three challenges from SCS this week (count 'em ... three!!!):

Monday's Technique Lover's Challenge (TLC401 - woven ribbon)
Tuesday's Color Challenge (CC399 - cherry cobbler, old olive, very vanilla)
Wednesday's Sketch Challenge (SC409)

I'm pretty proud of myself to combine that many challenges ... and with those colors, I HAD to make a Christmas card. :)  Besides I still need quite a few more Christmas cards for this year. 

"Holly Jolly Christmas"

Stamps:  Handy Christmas Greetings (Amy R)
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler (SU!)
Ink:  Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Curly-Q Border die and Holly & Berry die (C.C. Designs), sponges, 5/8" Old Olive satin ribbon, 1/2" Cherry Cobbler seam binding, sticky strips, glue dots and dimensionals

I cut two border dies from C.C. Designs (Curly-Q) and wove ribbon through (one Old Olive satin; one Cherry Cobbler seam binding).  Love how it turned out ... makes for a pretty border and will probably use this again on another card.  The holly leaves and berries are also a C.C. Design die and I just sponged around the edges to give them more depth.


One more quick thing ... my Room with a View card from Oct. 25 was picked for "A Cut Above" by Jaydee at Paper Players.  Thanks Jaydee!!

This is like a key lime and cherry pie, Loll! It's a toss-up between ornaments and holly, which one I adore more on a Christmas card. This is pinned perfectable!!

Gorgeous creation Loll. Just love the way you've threaded the ribbon through the borders - so effective. Congrats on your "Cut Above" award.

Love this card, Loll! I like how you've done the loopy border, and that colour combo is so juicy. Congrats on the Cut Above award, your card was a stunner.

Congratulations on your win at Paper Players, Loll! This looks like another winner to me. Love the border with the ribbon woven through it and the sweet little holly!
