Merry Monday Holly Jolly

Ah, Sunday morning...time for a last-minute Merry Monday card! I'm often given commercial cards by lots of kind folks, so that I can recycle them. This holly piece was made with 2 copies of the same design.



Supplies: American Crafts metallic red card stock; red rhinestones from Dollarama; recycled greeting cards


To create the 3D holly I used the second card & fussy cut just the holly sprig, and then popped it up with foam dots. The rhinestone berries were the finishing touch.


xoxo,
Jessi
