Have a Holly Jolly Christmas - AHSC #190

My card this week as Design Team Member for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #190. You still have time to join this challenge...you have until Sunday, December 18 to enter your project.  

Please hop on by to check the Design Team members and other entrant inspirations for this week, and every Monday for new sketches.  

MY CHRISTMAS STASH:  This is my seventh Christmas Card using the Atlantic Hearts sketches...watch for my next Christmas Card every Monday until mid December.   

Was going to use holly stamps and when I went to Cricut Design Space to get the cuts to stamp on decided to make my own panel with the same cutouts for a shaker card. Filled the shakers with tiny glitter, and the berries are red sequins with liquid glass added to the center of each berry.  Made my own sentiment through the text on Design Space and printed with the Cricut thin pens in red.  Distressed the panel of holly with Cranberry ink.

Pretty holly - pretty Christmas card! So glad you linked up for my Christmas/Winter Challenge at Choux Choux paper Art!

It's hard to see the shaker component until the card is enlarged - what a terrific idea! Love the colour intensity that the glitter inside the leaves and berries provide. Great idea for this sketch :)

I had no idea this was a shaker until I read your description. Beautiful card with or without the shaker feature!
