March Rudolph Days

 I got a new stamp set in the mail from Stamplorations called Christmas Baubles and on this set was some pretty holly so I used that design and a sentiment from the set to make a CAS mini slimline Christmas card. I am entering this in the March Rudolph Days challenge which calls for Christmas designs.



Needless to say I love holly on Christmas cards. Now this image could work alone the way I used it or it could be added as a corner accent for a larger type of card. I know I will use this often. I used my brushes to add some yellow around the focal images and sentiment and then layered it to red card stock before placing it on the white card base.

Thanks for the visit. I will be making lots more Christmas designs from now on I hope so that I will have a good amount on hand when the season arrives.

Have a great weekend and God bless, Verna

Such a simple stamp but you have made it look stunning especially with your brush work. Those berries are just shining.

I love holly too. I used to have a holly tree at my old house and always had it in my Christmas wreath and in glass vases where you submerge it under the water with a fat candle floating on top of it. I miss that tree...but, holly on a card is a good substitute!

Thanks for taking part in the March Rudolph Days Challenge.
