Green Holly

Hi and welcome to Merry Monday Challenge Day!  This week Nina is challenging us to use a bow on our cards.


It's been forever since I used ribbon on a card, so I decided to use twine on my card.


It's hard to tell from the photo but the dark strip down the side of the card is actually green and not black!  I tied a twine bow around the strip then adhered it to a white card base.  I then cut a narrower white panel and stamped the holly branch and sentiment on it before adhering it to the card base with foam tape.  I colored the berries with Wink of Stella.

And that's about it for this card!  Pretty simple.

Thanks for visiting.  The design team have some wonderful cards featuring bows so be sure to check them out.

Products used:

Stamps:  Holly Berries (SSS)
Ink:  Midnight Green, Schoolhouse Red (SSS), Versafine Onyx Black
Cardstock:  White, Midnight Green
Accessories:  White twine, Wink of Stella

Cheers
Karren
