Christmas Greetings


Today I'm sharing a card I made with a Sizzix die from the Tim Holtz Alterations collection called "Holly Branch." I used snippets of green cardstock, sponged with chocolate chip and curled around a pencil, and popped them up on foam tape to keep their shape. The branch was cut from a snippet of brown, and the berries were also snippets of red, glittered and covered with Glossy Accents to seal in the glitter. The sentiment is from Northwoods and I colored the holly in with Tombow markers. The card base color is Soft Stone.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge -  Christmas/Holiday theme

Scrapy Land #7 - anything goes using a die they sell in their store (Sizzix Holly Branch die)

Snippets Playground #153 - use snippets

Thanks for stopping by today and I wish you a wonderful day!!

I love holly so this one is dear to my heart. I very much like the 3D effect you get when you roll items with your pencil. Fun font on your sentiment. Enjoy your day.

You don't strike me as the kind of crafter who uses much of Tim's stuff but you've used it very well here. I really like this!

Love the depth you obtained with those leaves. Curling them round was a great idea. The berries look real by the way!
