Holly Jolly Christmas

At Beccy's Place the November Holiday challenge for Day 6 is a bingo grid.

My card was made to fit Gold, Die Cuts & Sparkle but would also fit Silver, Die Cuts & Stripes.

On Facebook Julie Hickey showed a sneak peek of a card that was part of a workshop she was running at Crafts You Love. This inspired me to crack open my glitter and have a go at making my own background.

I have several widths of red line double sided tape. I have laid these out onto a piece of white card and used silver, gold, red & green glitter to create the most sparkly paper. Of course I was absolutely covered in it by the time I was finished 😁

The holly die is from The Works. It was really cheap at only £4 and I was impressed with how crisp the cut was. I cut this from the mid green card and used a dark green Promarker to colour the outside frame & leaf spine. I added 3 large gems as the holly berries.

Finally I added a 3D cardstock sticker with a holly themed sentiment.

This card, although extremely sparkly is very CAS in the layout which is a complete departure for me.

Card Details :-

Size - A5
Dies - Holly Die from The Works
Embellishments - 3D Sentiment Sticker,  Loose glitter, large red gems
