Hollyday Greetings
by Trina Pham


Hello and happy Fri-YAY everyone!   This will be a quick post because I have a very easy clean and simple Christmas card to share today.

The Holly Branch was die cut from alcohol marker-friendly cardstock and the berries colored in with Copic markers R24, R46, R89.  The punny sentiment was die cut out of red Polished Foil paper using the Twiggy Alphabet die set.   “Greetings” from Festive Christmas Greetings stamp set was stamped on white cardstock with Barn Door distress oxide ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.


The Fresh Aqua paper was then trimmed to 4”x5.25”.  Salvaged Patina distress ink was then applied to the top with a blender brush before lightly splattering it with white gouache paint.  Assembled the card onto a white card base to finish.


Easy-peasy… and that’s it for today!   Thank you for joining me.  Have a wonderful weekend.





Lovely and quick to make, thanks so much for the inspiration!

It may be quick and easy, but it's got so many wonderful details and is truly beautiful. Great work Trina!

Fun sentiment and a contemporary and glorious card x.

Love these colors and the dimensional look of the berries! Fantastic way to do the sentiment too!

What a fabulous CAS card! Love the aqua with the white and red!

How beautiful you made the sky with soft shading. I love the appearance of a delicate twig against the sky and a beautiful sentiment in a vibrant color.

Thank you so much for this inspiration! It helped me to make about 40 cards with 2 different dies I had for a couple of years and never managed to use, but the white on green or blue was just great. Loads of compliments, all thanks to you.
