Holly Leaves

Hello, everyone.  Today I made another Christmas card.  Mirror paper is very hard to photograph.  But I bet you already knew that.

I stamped the holly, coloured with pencils, and mounted on red mirror paper and then green cardstock.  For the base of the card, I affixed an embossed red mirror panel and added gold-trimmed red ribbon.  Lastly, I affixed the mounted image with foam tape and added red Stickles to the holly berries.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Stamp:  Sugarloaf
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • Cardstock:  Recollections, Staples
  • Embossing folder:  Cuttlebug Baby's Breath
  • Mirror paper, ribbon:  Dollarama
  • Glitter glue:  Stickles Xmas Red

Well, I wouldn't dare use so much mirri card as I seem to mark it no matter how hard I try not to. Well done you, for a great card.

Lovely and shiny with the mirri card. Great traditional colours too. I just know that embossing will look fab IRL, but like you say, the shiny stuff is hard to photo!

Thanks for joining in with Rudolph Day.

Lovely card I tend to mirri sparingly as backing paper. It is pricy here and I hoard it a bit! lol

You card is so lovely! .
