Holly Bundle Christmas card

Happy Saturday!

The last weekend before Christmas.  Is it just me or has this year seemed to be shorter than 12 months?  Hmmm...I would check my calendar but someone most likely would have already noticed the calendar irregularity.  :)

The Spellbinders sets from the card I made earlier this week were not in their packages long.  Labels 39 and Labels 39 Decorative Elements are great sets.  They worked well with a stamp from Deep Red: Holly Branch Rubber stamp.  It was stamped onto water color paper using Ranger's Archival ink in Coffee.  Distress Markers in Bundled Sage and Peeled Paint were used on the leaves while Barn Door and Fired Brick were used on the berries.  Stickles was applied to the leaves and clear Pearl Pen applied to the berries:
All of the paper edges were Distressed using Antique Linen, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain.

The inside has the sweet new stamp from Quietfire Design:
Here is the set (love it!):
Merry Christmas Plain & Simple, Set of 6 - Mounted
I really don't know how Suzanne at Quietfire can make such lovely sentiment stamps.  I have a difficult time printing Merry Christmas...actually, my typing looks messy at times (LOL)...so for her to do the above writing styles so well is beyond impressive for me.  
Thanks so much for stopping by.  I do hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Big Hugs,
Kathy Jo
