Christmas Holly

I have another Christmas card to add to my pile for this year.
This one is 5"x5."  I used some teal patterned cardstock from the Peppermint Forest Stack by DCWV for the card base.  In fact, all the patterned cardstock is from that stack.  My next layer is some white cardstock that is 4 3/4"x4 3/4."  I then cut some striped cardstock at 4 5/8"x4 5/8."  I cut some more of the teal cardstock 4 1/4"x4 1/4."  The polka dotted cardstock is cut at 4 1/8"x4 1/8."  I cut more teal cardstock at 3 3/8"x3 3/8."  My final layer is white cardstock cut at 3 1/4"x3 1/4."  I used two different stamps for my sentiment.  I stamped them both in pearlescent  poppy ink by Tsukineko.  I don't know who the stamps are from though.  I added three light green gems under the word "merry."  I used Teresa Collins - December 25th for the holly cut.  I cut it at 3" and used Cricut Craft Room to hide the cuts in the center of the holly and berries.  I used another patterned cardstock for the holly and some gilded red cardstock for the berries.  I used pop-dots to adhere the holly to the card for some added dimension.
I made this for the following challenges:


  1. Paula, this is adorable!!!! I love the papers you chose to create this card! Gives me inspiration to use that cart I just received. Love Teresa Collins designs.
