One more Christmas card and I hope I'm done!  Also needed a card for my A Blog Named Hero post today.


I used an older Hero Arts holly set for my card, but this one would also work well.  I stamped the holly with black ink and colored with alcohol markers - fussy cut it.  Then used the same stamp to make a background using Versamark ink and clear heat embossing.  The sentiment was done the same way so it's all a shiny background.  Cut down the panel to 5x3.75", backed with fun foam and added to a soft grey base.  Adhered the holly and a few red enamel dots for berries and done!

A new challenge begins tomorrow at A Blog Named Hero - be sure to check it out!!

I am entering my card in the Happy Little Stampers December CAS challenge - emboss.
