Holiday / Winter Card

 Supplies:  Seasons Greetings Collage Digital kit by Hero Arts, 
glossy accents, cardstock - Folia, Envelope Pattern background stamp - Hero Arts, 
copics G21 G28 G29 blender 0 Y000 R37, pop dots, Anita's white A6 card blank, 
barn door distress ink andtea dye distress ink and blending tool.

I have had this card in my head for a few weeks following Jill's wonderful tutorial on partial colouring over on the Penny Black blog

I didn't want to use the entire Hero Arts Digital Collage stamp for this card.  I don't own the HA classic holly stamp I decided to just print the holly section, colour it, add glossy accents and do some distressing.
Kept it sentiment free - think I will stamp the greeting inside.

Have you seen the Holiday Card Making posts over on 2peas?  Check them out here.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

this is lovely Deirdre. I really like using this stamp too! It is such a "classic" holiday image!

wonderful Deirdre... but how did you manage just to print the holly? I have this collage image and would love to do that.

This is a stunning Christmas card, so simple and elegant but it really pops!

Gorgeous Deirdre. The holly looks so beautiful in the subtle glow of the background design.

This is stunning, Deirdre! I love how you coloured the holly and the way you inked the envelope pattern on the edges makes it glow. Fabulous!
