Red, Green, and White for Merry Monday

Merry Monday is keeping it traditional this week.

Since I love the traditional Christmas colours, I had to enter!

I took my TH holly stencil and sponged over it with red, brown, and a couple of shades of green Distress inks.

Out of the darker shade of green (IRL the green of the frame matches perfectly but doesn't look that way in the photograph), I cut the Merry Christmas frame and trimmed down the holly panel to fit behind it.

I added red pearls to the red sponging to make it look more like clusters of berries.

Another for the Christmas stash!

Ink - various Distress inks
Paper - white and green cs
Size - A2
Accessories - SSS Holiday Frame, TH holly stencil, red pearls


  1. Your pretty stenciled holly looks so beautiful framed by your die cut sentiment. TFS Susan. Hugs...

  2. Love your stenciled holly and the cute berries Susan! The framing die brings it all together nicely! Julia xx

  3. So pretty Susan. Love that stencil and adding the "berries" gives some nice dimension. xx
