Holly for 52CCT

This week's 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge is to pick a previous theme challenge. 

I picked theme #20 "Holly" and created this card:

And also made a colour variation on it:

I stamped and watercoloured my image, flicked some colour splatters on it, die cut with a square, and bordered with burlap.

It's a nice flat card for mailing and would also be easy to mass produce.

Thanks for visiting!

Stamps - Rubber Stampede holly, Wordsworth noel
Ink - Archival Jet Black
Paper - cream cs, watercolour paper
Accessories - watercolour paints, red and natural burlap


  1. Pretty holly, Susan! And I love the burlap and how different the red burlap makes the whole card!

  2. Gorgeous! I love the beautiful holly image combined with the burlap. Thanks for joining us at 52CCT, April x

  3. Love both these vibrant holly themed cards. Lovely watercoloring, and I liked the texture of the burlap frame behind the image. Especially loving the wonderful color on the red...Very rich depth indeed. TFS

  4. Great design with the beautiful holly image and splatters. The burlap layer is awesome ... adding lots of texture. Love both colours. xx

  5. I like that you made two cards with the holly theme. The burlap texture is just super. Thanks so much for playing along with our Pick a Previous theme at 52CCT this week! Deborah, DT.
