The Holly & the Ivy...
For this deign i started off with some colour cloud - Basil Leaf on coconut white, i cut out two of each of the ivy dies from the finishing touches collection of dies. I cut two of each of the holly sprays in brunswick green. I entwined these two together and held them in place with cosmic shimmer glue.
I made three itty bitty bows using Rich Red card, i used both the classic bow and filigree bow and layered them together. I made the same bow using the full size die.
Whilst waiting for these to dry I made the final matt and layers in coconut white and rich red. I used john lockwoods stamps .. the holly and the ivy on each side and added a flourish in each corner.
I layered the holly and ivy into a wreath shape and added the bows. I cut out two pairs of filigree holly and added pva berries. Whilst waiting for this to dry I stamped ... the holly & ivy and shaded holly leaves in a circular shape in the centre. I added the holly to centre of the design.
Finished design 8 x 8 inches
