Holly Season's Greetings

Hi there and welcome to May! I've been missing for a while, between the kitchen renovations, and then battling with families of raccoons up above the garage, where I normally stamp! So, needless to say, I've not been doing much of anything up there! We caught another two on Friday night in have-a-heart traps, but there are probably more to be caught!  The pest control ran out of traps!!

Thankfully the weather has started to get really nice, tonight is the last of the frost warnings and I am looking forward to planting my annuals on Thursday!! In the meantime, my perennials have been keeping me amused. Columbine, such a dainty and beautiful plant is my header for May.

Anyway, on to my card today, which is for the Christmas Craft Creations Design Team.  

This month the theme is:

Of course, I couldn't make up my mind what die to use, so I ended up using 4!

I began with die cutting the Tutti Holly Panel from green cardstock.

Sticker paper was attached to the back of the panel and then I added Cherry Sparkle flocking.

Then I stuck a piece of 2 1/2" Terrific-Tape down on white cardstock and cut it out with the Spellbinders Mega Oval Large die.

The Winterland Holly was cut from the same green cardstock.

The Tonic Season's Greetings sentiment was then cut from red cardstock and both of the dies were arranged on top of the sticky oval.

The remaining sticky surface was then applied with Snow White Flocking.

The front panel was taped to a red card base and then the sentiment was added with mounting tape. A few self-adhesive rhinestones were added for the holly berries.

Below you can see the dimension and fuzziness of the flocking a bit better!

Here is a list of what I used on my card today:
