Hello, hello. Penny here today with lots of sparkle. Nothing makes me happier than shiny cardstock. Pretty papers and a couple of new dies from the Holiday Collection and you have yourself a fancy shamcy card to send to a favorite friend.  This is the final day of our Blog Blitz, so make sure you have checked out all of the designers creations this past week and get your comments in by midnight tonight.


And here we go:


Start with a White card base measuring 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches. Cut Green Mirrored cardstock the same size and adhere.




Die cut Elegant Holly Double Frame and Joy Circle from Green Matte Metallic cardstock. Take the inner frame and snip around each edge as shown above.




Trim Ice Blue Glitter cardstock just a bit smaller than card front and adhere.

Now starting adding your frames. Large one in the center and the snipped ones at the corners.




Add the Joy Circle and the extra Holly as shown.

Add Red Crystal Drops for the berries. (Try to do a better job than I did)  :)


I am giving away the Elegant Holly Double Frame to one lucky person who comments on my post by midnight tonight. Look for a list of winners tomorrow.


Happy Holiday Crafting,






So elegant card! ...and frame :)

Beautiful card!!

So pretty and I love how you extended the Holly Frame into the corners. The green mirror cardstock is perfect to draw your eyes to the holly details! I also love the pop of red with your crystal drops!

Gorgeous card. Elegant design and love the shine. I really like how you created the corners with this beautiful die.

Very nice idea to extend use of the Holly Frame to create corners. Lovely, elegant card!

What a beautiful card! Simple and elegant! Greatnway to show how to use parts of the die. The blog blitz has been wonderful.

This holly die is my favorite of the new release! Your card is wonderful, thanks for sharing your creative idea with us.

Love it! Thanks for the inspiration!

Oh wow, this really is very elegant with all that sparkle
and the frame is just so delicately stunning.

Very creative use of the frame to make the delicate corners. The shiny paper sets it all off beautifully. And the red crystal drops were just fine!

This is absolutely gorgeous. Love all the sparkle and shine - so elegant!

Penny your card is so pretty and delicate. Quite the inspiration for us all.

Like the holly & framing of this.

So elegant and gorgeous!

Gorgeous card!

Such pretty and delicate dies. Love them die cut from green metallic paper. x

I love how you used the inner frame to make the outer corners! Stunning card.

Lovely card. I agree shiny and sparkly are a must for the holidays. I like that the Elegant Holly Double Frame has lots of options.

So elegant with the mirrored cardstock! Gorgeous card!

Oh boy! This is my favorite of all the posts. Just beautiful.......thought about saying it is "simple and beautiful" but I know getting all those little holly leaves stuck to glitter paper is not an easy task. The green mirror card stock and red berries with the "joy" circle definitely say "Christmas." Love it!

Stunning creation very beautiful

Fabulous card and love the dies!

The Holly die is incredible and you have shown how versatile it is. I love how you used the inner die to create the corners - really sets off your card. The colors and all the glitter and shine make it such a beautiful card!

Classy, eye catching & JOYFUL!

A very beautiful and elegant card!!! I love dies like this because they make it all so easy!!!
