Holly Jolly Card by Ellen Taylor

Check out this pretty card from Ellen Taylor! Love the candy striped sentiment!

Ellen used Holly Jolly D14121, Holly Wreath DIE109-Y, Twig Wreath Die Set DIE023-X and Sm Snowflake Set DIE100-F for her card.

I colored Holly Jolly D14121 directly with Memento Cottage Ivy and Lady Bug Red Markers, leaving uninked strips.  Once stamped on my card stock, the blank strips were glittered up using a Zig 2 way glue pen and some glitter, giving it a sweet candy cane look.

 

 


The frame for Holly Jolly D14121 was created by die cutting the Holly Wreath DIE109-Y twice, cutting it and adhering it in an oval around the sentiment.  I used the berries from the Twig Wreath Die Set DIE023-X  and sponged the birds with Memento Rich Cocoa.  To finish it off I added a blinged snowflake  from the Sm Snowflake Set DIE100-F to top the  red bow.

Have a great day!

Fabulous technique--I've never used markers to make a pattern on the stamp--love it!

Your mind never stops churing. This is such a great idea. Leave it to you to come up with something as grand as this.

Great card! Ellen always has the best ideas! Also love this holly wreath die. Thanks for sharing.
