Clean & Simple Holly

Hello everyone,

I so needed a super easy card today. It was a day full of Christmas work obligations and the knowledge that I have too much to do in way, way too little time. I'm also exhausted and ready to hit the sack. Today's Clean & Simple sketch was the absolute perfect inspiration for a card.

I used my standard Halcraft card base. The red paper is Stampin' Up Real Red which was textured with the Sizzix Holly & Berries plate. The image comes from Inkadinkado and was highlighted in Xmas Red and Diamond Stickles. The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse which I stamped in two parts vertically.

I really like this card. Holly is one of my favourite Christmas images. As my inspiration was lagging, I decided it was easiest to turn to a favourite for a creativity boost.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.



  1. This is great Gisele, love your take on that lovely sketch. I have three more cards to make and then I'm done... might just use that sketch for one of them! Jo x

  2. I like that you embossed the background red strip behind your stamped holly leaves.
