Holly Christmas

Hello everyone!! It's time for a new Rudolph Days challenge. This is my last challenge post as a GDT. If you are new to this challenge, you should definitely check it out here! The theme is anything goes as long as it's Christmas!!

Here's what I've made:


I used the Inspired By Stamping - Christmas Wreath stamp set to create the background on a ivory card stock. I used Hero Arts Red Royal and Forever Green inks for the holly leaves and berries. I gold embossed the flourishes to add a sparkle. The sentiment is from Unity Stamps Unto us stamp set, which I embossed with gold powder. I really love gold embossing, especially on Christmas cards!!

I just realized that the last post on my blog was exactly a month back. I guess I'll be on and off for a while now.

Thanks for stopping by. Your comments are much appreciated.
