Holly on Kraft


Here's my card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge to use kraft. I started with a kraft card base, and used a Tim Holtz die for this basic card. I used pieces of dark green and chocolate chip, sponging everything with chocolate chip ink. I shaped the leaves by pressing them around a pencil and popping them up on foam tape. The berries were shaped and coated with glossy accents, and the SU! sentiment was done with chocolate chip ink.

That's all I have for today, but thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!
