All month long, I've been participating in an everyday holiday card challenge at SnC. I went through a funk the last week or so - with card block! I think I had breakthrough today, because I really like how this card turned out. I fell back on a few of my favorite things - my cricut and cuttlebug (which I always forget to pull out!)
I started with a kraft card base and added an embossed beige mat, using my Victorian folder. I cut this holly using the "icon" feature on A Child's Year. I'm loving that cartridge! I used buttons for the berries. The tag sentiment also came from that cart, although on a different key.
I inked all the edges with Walnut dye ink - and for the first time ran my pad over the embossed background to make it pop. I like the effect! I'm entering this card for Mary's Paper Cutz challenge "anything goes".
