Hello and welcome aboard our Australasian Close to My Heart “Holly & Ivy” Blog Hop.
If you have arrived here from Creative Inspirations then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.
Today I would like to share with you a set of creations which feature the Close To My Heart Featured collection “Holly & Ivy ”.
I made these cards with a goal in mind – I wanted them to be made quickly and easily. And I wanted to use up bits and pieces that I had left over from other creations and kits.I found in my pile of bit my Holly & Ivy “scraps” (X7273D), a set of the Holly & Ivy PML cards (X7273D), and an unopened packed on the Holly & Ivy Die cuts (X7273E). Add some Gold Glitter Gems (Z3312), shimmer brushes and card bases. Boom! Christmas Cards.
I wasn’t afraid to cut up the PML cards. I really like the white border around the edge of the card front – so the 4″ width of the PML cards is perfect. For patterns that needed to be more the full card I either trimmer off the ends – or one I even cut in half and overlapped the pieces to make it 5 1/4″ long. And I kept all the off cuts to use on the cards with strips and for some future cards. I feel there will be another blog post later with more Christmas Cards made with this collection of Holly & Ivy left overs.
