Merry and Bright

What better way to spend your time than watching movies and making cards.  Yes, I can multitask.  I keep saying that I have all of my Christmas cards made but I just keep adding to the stack.  This way I'll already be ahead for next year.  I do like to plan ahead.

This card was made following the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge.  It's another of those favorite challenges but it's been a while since I've been able to play along.

Stamp(s):  Holly Jolly Background, Simple Strips Christmas (Taylored Expressions)
Ink(s):  Jet Black (Altenew); Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow (Stampin' Up!)
Cardstock:  Whisper White (Stampin' Up!)
Dies:  Simple Strips Die (Taylored Expressions)
Other:  Iridescent Gems; Foam Tape

And, here's a close up view of that great holly pattern.  What I love about this Holly Jolly Background stamp set by Taylored Expressions is that the background of holly and berries is a large rubber stamp and the stamp that fills in the outlines is a clear (photopolymer) one.  I also like that, if you don't get it positioned exactly right, it still looks good.

The sketch I used is from the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge.  For all the challenge details, click the image below.

Thanks for stopping by,
