For my card, I stamped the Holly Tag with black ink, colored it with markers and cut it out. The sentiment was stamped with library green ink and I used markers to add the red and blue shadows/highlights. It was die cut using a Spellbinders labels 4. I used the same die to trace a sky blue frame for it and hand cut it.

I used a scallop border die to cut the bottom of a piece of dp and a white strip and layered them together. For the white band, I embossed it with holly folder,  cut out a section and added narrow red and sky blue strips to the top and bottom edges. The punched red strip was done with a border punch. I embossed the large white holly, cut it out and sponged a little neptune ink around the edges. The ribbon was white and I colored it with a red marker. It’s all attached to a white 5.5 x 4.25 card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
