A Holly Jolly Christmas

Good morning - Adrienne from Eagle Canyon Arts.  It's always a pleasure to be a part of Sheila's talented Sassy Lady design team.  Thank you, Sheila. 

My friend Gina is one of the most creative people I know.  She holds workshops all the time and provided the inspiration for these cards.  I'll be presenting 2 or 3 different cards for the next few blog posts.

Close To My Heart Supplies used:
Holly Jolly Christmas Stamp - D1657
White Pines Paper Packet  - Z7200B
White Pines Compliments - Z7200C
Fern Twine - Z3093
Red Enamel Gems - Z3090
Fern Ink - Z2650; Cranberry Ink - Z2116
Liquid Glass - Z679
Colonial White Cards and Envelopes - X1410
Colonial White Cardstock - 1388
Cricut Artistry Cartridge - Z3167
3D Foam Tape -  Z1151

Edges of  some cards and pieces of cardstock used are inked with complimentary color to add interest.  Use your imagination!  In the card above, the liquid glass comes in handy to glue on the clear plastic "holiday cheer" banner without leaving a visible residue after it dries.
This card uses a piece of Fern Cardstock cut at 1 ¼ ” (Real Dial) Shape <c> Page 33 of Artistry handbook.
Colonial White Cardstock is used on this card, Real Dial cut a 5” Shape <Christmas> Page 48 of Artistry handbook.  For added interest, emboss the cut with your favorite embossing folder.  This would also work with any of the large, solid color backgrounds.

Best wishes for pleasant holidays!

Beautiful cards, Adrienne. Artistry is the only CTMH cartridge I don't own - yet. TFS.
