Holly Jolly Christmas

Good morning friends! I hope your week is going well...with all the preperations for the upcoming holiday! We've got shopping lists and recipes out....the perfect meal is in store! There is still snow on the ground, a fire in the fireplace...all is well!!

I wanted to share another Christmas card...SUPER easy to produce and a lot of bang for your buck. The stamps are from the Holiday Button Bits stamp set from PTI. I am loving these great holly leaves! And the sentiment is another holiday favorite....love it!!
I started with a ripe avacado card. I stamped my holly with ripe avacado ink onto spring moss cardstock, and then also added my sentiment with the same ink. I used my apron lace border punch on some rapsberry fizz paper and then added it to my card. I added a chocolate chip strip of paper and then tied a raspberry fizz ribbon around. I added my spring moss layer to my card and then moved onto to picking the buttons. I added a bit of pink tule just under my perfect raspberry fizz buttons...a fun little extra detail!

I think I'll get a few more of these made, I know it's not a traditional color scheme for Christmas, but it is one that I love!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Make it a great one!!
