Christmas Holly - using an unusual stamp set!

Hello everyone! Each week for my classes I like to showcase one stamp set or bundle and make 3 different cards to show the versatility of it. 

And today I have a Christmas card for you that we made in class using a stamp set that you probably haven't even thought was Christmas like at all! 

And this stamp set is.......Gorgeous Posies! In the catalogue it is shown as the coordinating stamp set for the Gorgeous Posies kit (which is stunning BTW!) We made up the kit in class a few weeks prior and I promised my ladies I would come back with more card designs with this stamp set. 

Can you see that now you look at it with Christmas in mind there  are holly berries and a holly leaf? I found this idea on facebook - it was designed Jenni McCormac @ Jemini Crafts. I changed mine ever so slightly, changing the orientation and dies.     

It is quite a quick and easy design. Start by stamping randomly over a piece of Whisper White cardstock in real red and granny apple green. The 'dots' stamp is a great filler stamp for those white spaces in between the holly. 

The sentiment comes from Wrapped in Christmas and I used the stitched so sweetly dies to layer them on the card. This is a great design for making a bunch of Christmas cards with minimal supplies - why not give it a try?
