Wee Holly Berry
This is Holly Berry, one of my favourites from a while back. I've coloured her with my Copics then added clear glaze pen over the berries and pearl pen for falling snowflakes.
Here's the card:
It's a simple design as I'm trying to get the craft stash put away for Christmas. The papers are old magazine freebies and I've simply added my faux embossed stitching around the edges then inked with a dark red chalk ink. I had a scrap of red lacy stuff to put behind the image and created a floral embellishment from left over die cut and punched pieces. Finishing off with a little red bow, some bling and a text in my bit box from a Buddly Crafts digi set. The flowers are cut from mulberry paper with Marianne Design COL1323, one of my favourite die sets that I use a lot.
I have a box of Christmas cards I've made throughout the year, but not sent. Mum usually takes quite a few from me but she's not been able to send many this year .. .. I think I will have to make several simple anytime of year cards for her to send later in 2016 when she is back home. Next time I'm at a craft shop I'll get a packet of cello bags and sort through the Christmas cards that are flat enough to post, this being one, then donate them to charity .. .. someone might like them for next year!
At the Holly Jolly Christmas challenge blog it's anything Christmas, so I can enter my card with them.
