Signs of Christmas Week 2 at The Cheerful Stamp Pad

All around us there are signs of Christmas, what are your ideas for them?  A Christmas wreath, tree, snow, holly and so many more. The count down is on and I’m still making some cards to send to a few friends so this challenge is perfect for me.  Kaz Kats at Stitchy Bear digital Outlet is one of the sponsors for the challenge and I chose a sprig of holly as my image here is what I made for the challenge at The Cheerful Stamp Pad.
The image was coloured with alcohol markers and  fussy cut out then elevated on to the strip of patterned paper which was edged with some gold paper. the red layer was embossed with a poinsettia embossing folder from Sizzix (Stampin’up) I embossed Seasons Greetings in gold.
A close up of the image, I added glossy accents to the berries.
The finished inside of the card, I added some scraps to the sentiment layer.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you find time to add your project to the challenge at The Cheerful Stamp Pad.
