Today I'm sharing another card that was made using the supplies from Catherine Pooler's SOA Holiday Magic Collection.

I started by stamping the solid leaf images onto my panel of Neenah Solar white cardstock and then stamping over these using the outline image and a darker green. I slightly offset the outlined images for a more loose effect. I then added the berries in red and added a little shimmer using clear Wink of Stella. The sentimen is from the same stamp set by The Ton and was heat embossed in white onto a scrap of black cardstock. I added 2 strips of red glitter paper on either side before mounting my panel onto a black card base.

This will increase my chances of winning the next collection that will be released by the end of January. To vote, simply follow the link above and click on the heart in the image of my card(s).

  1. Truly magical! I love holly to start with but your card design is gorgeous.

  2. Fabulous card Marianne! I was surprised to read that you had stamped all the holly yourself... that stamp set is beautiful and gives such a great result. I also like the way you heat embossed the image, the white really stands out beautifully. Great job!

  3. Stunning. I thought that was a printed paper until I read your post. Thank you for joining in the challenge at CHNC Extra for December.
