Ellie and tree

   Here is a second Christmas card made using a panel and paper from Wild Rose Studio. I matted the lighter design paper onto green mirri card and white card. I then matted the strips of paper cut from yesterday's backing paper onto green mirri card and attached these to the card. I chopped the panel down and matted it onto green mirri card that had been cut using a Spellbinders marvelous square die. The holly embellishment was cut using a mini holly Tattered Lace die. The solid, paler under holly was made by drawing round the die cut piece and cutting it out. The berries were created using Liquid Pearls. The sentiment is a peel off attached to mirri card cut using a Spellbinders scalloped oval die. Finally I added some stars.
