Holly Christmas Cards

 Well, now and then over the past couple weeks I have been working on Christmas cards and these are two samples of some I made using the Beccy's Place Blessings of the Season Set. She has been selling older sets at reduced prices and I saw this one and knew it was one I wanted to own. I am using the pre-colored design too so it is not my fingers trying to fumble around coloring. I am showing two versions that I have been making with the set. I only used the holly design here but there are more designs on the set that I can implement another year. Below is the A2 size design.



And below this one is the slimline version I made. So far I have about five cards total made with this holly set. But I printed out several sheets so I will be making many more with it.



I thought that holly was so festive looking and with a reduced price for the sets I thought it was worth the purchase. If you are interested you can check the sale items at Beccy's Place as there are lots of wonderful sets.

Thanks for the visit and I hope all will have a great weekend. 

Take care and God bless, Verna

I love both holly cards and what a great way to get ready for next year. I am going to check out the sale at Becky's Place.

Your first one with the red on the top and bottom is very striking but they all will be perfect for next December.

These are gorgeous. I love the traditional colors and simple design. Speaking of Christmas, we still have all our decorations up, tree and all. Presents under the tree too. Family Christmas won't be for a couple of weeks when our 2nd Covid shot kicks in. Nothing like spreading the holiday out.

So gorgeous! I love the pretty image and its coloring, and it's the perfect size for both card sizes, which doesn't happen a lot (at least for me!). Happy, safe weekend for you as well

Both versions look fabulous and I love the vibrancy of the green holly with the pop of red on the berries x.

This is such an elegant image, Verna and you have created a couple of very stylish festive cards with it. All the better that it was a bargain too lol!¬
