Bold Holly Leaves

Hi bloggers!  The penultimate post today is dedicated to showing off the Bold Holly Leaves.  You can see how lovely it looks in the sample here.  Imagine using this die as an accent on your floral elements on your cards or you can easily nip it in parts to make a lovely wreath.  There is a left and right facing die in the set as well as some nice swirly accents that are useful too.  Just leave your comment on this post if you would like a chance to win this one.  The final post of the blog launch will be here at 3pm today and it's a beauty! All for now, Sue x

Beautiful cards and love the holly and berries die. I have your other holly die and use it a lot but this one is completely different and even has the berries which would be very handy.

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue

Lovely card and more great dies. I too have your other holy dies, but still love these. The holly on your card looks like it has been cut out of clay. That’s how good the embossing on them is. Looking forward to the next post but sad it’s coming to an end.

Love Helen xxx

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I love this card - it has my favourite robins on :-) - and combined with the Bold Holly Leaves they look so happy to be there. I have your previous holly leaves with berries and I think that these will mix perfectly with them. I also like the swirly accents, so good for just filling that small space.

Hi Sue, this is another stunner of a card and with those cute robins that i absolutely love.
Must get these holly leaves dies as it is one die i don't have many of and again i really love the fact there is a pair. The amount of times i have tried to use one die and try and turn one over to face the opposite way and then given up because it didn't look right. Well i won't have that problem with these :-)
