CHNC challenge 270: use a sentiment


This is my card for my CHNC challenge 270, where the challenge this week is to use a sentiment on a Christmas creation. Please click on the link to see the prizes that are generously being given by sponsors and join in the challenge.

For my card I used two similar Anna Griffin papers, cutting some holly from one and sticking on to the other which had been hot foiled with the sentiment using my new Todo. The Anna Griffin papers were then mounted on to red mirror card and then on to the dark green card blank. The red gems are ones that I bought a few years ago at Poundland - they seem to be a funny shape for holly berries, but those that formed part of the paper designs were that shape. You can read about this card here on My Crafty Outlook. Difficult to see the foiling properly because of reflection, but the small piece shows how clearly the sentiment has foiled with the Todo:
