The inspiration for this card comes from Burl Ives singing " Have A Holly Jolly Christmas". I do love old traditional Christmas music and that is one of my favorites. Needless to say I quote him quite vocally throughout the Christmas season...much to the chagrin of anybody in listening range!
I am having troubles with my camera but my sentiment is definitely red, white and green. I colored Holly Jolly D14121 directly with Memento Cottage Ivy and Lady Bug Red Markers, leaving uninked strips. Once stamped on my card stock, the blank strips were glittered up using a Zig 2 way glue pen and some glitter, giving it a sweet candy cane look.
The frame for Holly Jolly D14121 was created by die cutting the Holly Wreath DIE109-Y twice, cutting it and adhering it in an oval around the sentiment. I used the berries from the Twig Wreath Die Set DIE023-X and sponged the birds with Memento Rich Cocoa. To finish it off I added a blinged snowflake from the Sm Snowflake Set DIE100-F to top the red bow.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!!
