Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #96 - Use Holly on your Christmas card.

Hi folks!! Welcome to another Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge. Have a look at this week's delightful, 'yesteryear' inspiration. You are asked to use holly on your cards, another totally iconic Christmas image. Looking forward to seeing what you do with this one. :-)


I seem to have returned to die cutting this week!! 
The holly leaves are a mixture of card and vellum. There are a couple of DSPs and mirror board for the shiny bell and stars. I love the mixed Font sentiment from W Plus 9.



Dies: Dee's Distinctively Wreath Builder Dies,  Spellbinders Foliage, Lil' Inker Holly Jolly, Small Bow, Stitched Circles and Jingle Bell Die Sets. SSS Large holiday shapes (stars)
Card: Kaskad, Neenah, Kaiser, MME 'Tis the Season
Stamp: W Plus 9 Silver Bells

Head over to the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge Blog to see what the other Design Team members have created to inspire you.

Have fun!!
