Holly and Celery

Nope, I'm not offering any recipes containing holly leaves today.  The title refers to my holly-themed card and liberal use of Certainly Celery.

I made four of these last night, assembly-line style.  I used gold embossing powder to do the sentiment, which comes from the Stampin' Up! set Snow Swirled, and also the holly leaf cluster which comes from SU's Sleigh Bells Ring.  The leaves were colored with SU markers:  Certainly Celery, Old Olive, and Always Artichoke; the berries with Real Red and Cherry Cobbler.

How do you like the embossing folder?  It's new-to-me, from Sizzix, and it's called Snow Globe.  I think it's a misnomer.  It has nothing to do with snowglobes! 



I can proudly show you a close-up of my gold embossing -- see, no freckles!!

I'm entering in these challenges today:
Thanks for dropping by today.  You have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Stamping,
Colleen

I love, love, love that embossing folder! Wonder why they call it Snowglobe? This card is so beautiful in it's simplicity! Gonna have to CASE it!

I like the embossing folder. Like you, I am thinking that Snow Globe is an odd name for it. Your holly is so pretty and don't you love when you have no freckles when embossing. I HATE celery (the kind you eat) but I love the card made with it.

Colleen, these are SO pretty!! I love the celery with the holly--a delicious combination, hee hee. So beautifully CAS. That's a fantastic embossing folder, and I'm so impressed with your freckle-less embossing!! Do tell how you achieved that ;) Is this one of your entries for the CAS DT trials? If so, I think it will give you an winning edge :) Way to go, my friend.

What a lovely card! I just saw in the CAS for the week, and had to come to your blog to see the close-ups. It's REALLY lovely! So simple, so elegant, so warm. I really like it a lot.

Stunning! I bought that embossing folder this week, and haven't got to put it into action. Seeing this makes me wonder why!

This is a gorgeous CAS card, Colleen! I loved stopping by to see your close-ups of it. :) I think Certainly Celery is my favorite green and the gold embossing with it adds a really elegant touch!
