Metallic Holly Border Card

Back with another challenge card. Today, I am participating in the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #298. I had a lot of fun with this challenge. I again, used dies from the Tonic Craft Kit #11 Festive Wishes. If you can't tell, this is a favorite of mine this season. I cut a the border die out of Holly Green Mirror Card From Festive Lights by Craft Perfect by Tonic Studios and then used the plain border die in the craft kit to cut a matching edge out of the front of my card base, so it would be shorter in the front to allow room for the gold holly piece to hang down. Next, I cut the holly pieces that hang out from under the green metallic holly border out of a scrap of gold metallic cardstock from my stash. I glued the green metallic holly border to the gold metallic holly piece and then attached both to my card base. Next, I heat embossed my sentiment with gold embossing powder by Ranger and I used the stamp & die set Snowflakes by Art-C by Spellbinders. I placed this on the lower right hand side of my card, which is actually the inside of my card, since I cut the lower half of my card front off. I finished the card off by adding gemstones the the gold holly piece where the "berries" would be.
