It's always a challenge to make Christmas cards that meet the weight limit for postage that still have interest. I feel like I've managed it here, using the EBE Mondo Holly, simply debossing the die onto the front panel...
Did you catch my gray holly water colored for The Flower Challenge, or on IG? I couldn't help but do another for you color lovers!
A few cards ready for Christmas! 75 to go!
How are you doing on yours? beautifully, I'll bet... thanks for stopping by!
beautiful! and clever to use the die that way.
i have zero cards done! HA
Wow! I love all of these!! and what incredible inspiration you have outside your window : ) !!! Good job...75!?!! ooooh! I have about 50 to make each year and I thought THAT was a lot! : )
Enjoy your Monday!
Fabulous cards Michele. You really rock that mondo holly. I am especially fond of the gray. Wonderful inspiration outside your window for sure. I'm in the middle of post vacay laundry. So I comisirate with your LOADS to do. Hugs my friend.
I was just playing with this stamp and I adore it too but your cards make me want to get it out again... shame I've got to go to work...
These are ALL BEAUTIFUL Michele, but I really, REALLY like the traditional green & red one...your coloring is FABULOUS and I noticed a few colors I don't have that you used and I really like...just added them to my Copic wish list! Thanks for enabling friend!! :0)
So beautiful and insanely intricate looking! After all these years, I still can't make a card that'll mail to save my life! Truly. I may just have to take a page out of your book, and start getting good at coloring! Because these beauties are breath-taking. And how clever is that embossing! Love all of these LOADS (see what I did there - I know it's awful!) Hugs to you dear friend and THANK you for your support, love and kind words. Means the world :)
Wish I was there peeking out that window at that pretty holly with you! You've captured it's beauty in your card perfectly. I love the lighter green version too. Well shucks, they're all fabulous!
What lovely inspiration, Michele ... you've created a gorgeous card (and cards!) based on it ... such clever use of the die to add texture and interest! Hugs, Anita :)
You make fabulous cards with this holly image!
Wow! These are really gorgeous! I love the colors, and what a terrific inspiration right outside the window!
I'm so busy getting Halloween and Thanksgiving cards done that I have neglected the Christmas ones. I have two copies of the holly that I borrowed from you, Michele, and I'm anxious to color them up. Maybe next week.
Wow Michele, all of these cards are just stunning! I love this die and stamp set, so pretty and you have the perfect inspiration right out your studio window!!! I think I want your studio view! lol Hugs, Brenda
I'd say that this is the way to obtain inspiration, perfectly.
You have really nailed it with this Mondo Holly stamp, Michele! Beautiful coloring on all three...of course, your gray leaves are my fave, but they are all truly stunning and perfect for mailing anywhere!
Debossing the die??? What a lovely idea and I absolutely love it! And the other two versions are knockouts, too, as well as your inspiration!
So beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing, Michele. Hugs!
Oh, I’m in love with these holly cards, Michele! Just seeing that photo out your window is great....I grew up on a road named Holly Lane, so it’s my Christmas favorite. Thanks for sharing these lovely cards.
great inspiration, wonderfully done cards mf.
