Holly Cascade

Can I say again how glad I am Fabulous Frame is back in stock?!  I will be using it in my video for Tuesday, along with another favorite set!  And I think I may be doing a prize, too! :)

Here is a quick card I made the day I got my Fabulous Holiday Fillers set in the mail and wanted to test out some of the images. (I don't think I've shown you any cards with the snowflake border!) I may have gone a *little* overboard on cascade of holly,  I think less is more, but just to show you another option! I used GKD Cherry Red and Red Hot for the berries and GKD Grass Green and Fresh Asparagus for the holly, both stamped and stamped off. 
This is a single layer card.  

I like this card better in real life: the frame and snowflakes are actually stamped in GKD Navy, but it photographs really dark, looks black. I love the GKD In the Navy cardstock and coordinating ink but I don't use it as often for designs for the blog because it does look so black in my photos.  Anyway, the navy stamping looks really nice with the blue tones in the borders and belly band, softer than with black ink. 

Checking off my Christmas card list, one at a time...!

Have a fabulous weekend!

That is a really cute card. I don't think it was too much with the cascading hollies. I am waiting to receive the Fabulous Frame and Holiday filler stamp sets. I ordered them as soon as they came back in stock. Can't wait to get them! There are so many different designs you can create with these stamps!

Melanie, there is no such thing as a little overboard at Christmas time!
More is definitely "MORE". It is so quaint to see all of those sweet little embellishment stamping extras.
I am in love with the entire Fab Frame series.
I left my "frame" on my Fiskar's stamp stage. LOL Now, I will have to purchase a new stamp stage for my other stamping needs.
That, my friend, is a true addiction to a stamp set!!! LOL
TFS all your wonderful idea!
