Holly Berry Bouquet colours

Over at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown it's always Christmas time and this week is no exception, with a traditional/vintage colour scheme chosen for us by our lovely hostess for July, Patricia.

As soon as \I saw these colours I had one thing in mind, a DP from Stampin' Up's Holly Berry Bouquet range.  I know, I've used this loads but I love it! Having a DP and a colour combo is fine but where do you find the rest of the inspiration?  Oh...yes... at Craft Club! I went over to our craft club on Tuesday at fellow DT member Jacqueline's and we made tunnel cards.  Here's mine using the 52 CCT colours

Not only did I learn how to make a tunnel card, but also a trick with your nestabilities to make tighter fitting frames, by drawing around the edge of your die and cutting it out to make a mat.  Why tunnel card? Take a look inside

 I also borrowed the pine cone stamp. The little robins are a stamp I used at another craft club ages ago, when we were making toppers.Goodness, I hardly feel that this card is mine, now I've told you all this! Even the little fabric roses were supplied at the club! I'd not realised these came on a ribbon, apparently they were in a previous SU catalogue and are now retired - what a shame- I've only just discovered them!


  1. Wow, that's a wonderful, fancy card Louise, the recipient will get a lovely surprise when they open the card! The robins on the front are so sweet - but the inside is just fabulous! Have a great weekend! Ruth x

  2. I really like your paper and your pine cone stamp! Very pretty!

  3. This turned out beautifully Louise - love the little robins - Jacqueline xx

  4. Oh my gosh - fabulous style of card. I haven't tried that yet - it looks so fun! Beautiful card Louise. I love that paper!

  5. This is amazing, Louise!!! LOVE the darling image and your patterned paper is awesome! HUGS and have a great week! :)

  6. That's a very cool way of showing off both sides of the designer paper!


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love reading them all!
