Holly Sprig

Hi crafters!  The last post of the day is devoted to the Industrial Chic Holly Sprig die set.  I have used it here in this sample to make a lovely wreath.  I added green Glitter Kiss to bling it up and of course the tiny cogs make great berries for the holly, don't you think!  I borrowed the bow and the sentiment from the wreath die set, but you can see how well everything will marry up together.  If this set appeals to you and you would like the chance to win it, then just leave a comment on this post and your name will be entered into this drawing.  Like I always say, somebody has to win it and it might be you!  We only have a few more to share with you tomorrow, but the fun kicks off at 6am as usual.  Hope to see you then.  All for now, Sue x

Good afternoon Sue,
Absolutely stunning card today with your beautiful holly with cogs die. I love how you have used it as a wreath .Yvonne xx

Steph Cotterill said...

Oooo now this I like ! I think it's because the cogs are really smaller than your previous sets Sue and that I can work with, great for CAS and batch making for any size card, yeah, I could work with this lol xxx

Pauline Austen said...

Really, really useful die. Love how you've used the holly sprigs to make a wreath but just shows how versatile this die is and it doesn't even look grungy either so that will please everyone. Now, this has moved up to 2nd place. Oh dear! I need most of these dies. Will be living on dry bread next week! Hugs xx Pauline from Teesside

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I like this card! The holly is just right and my favourite so far. I love the idea of the little cogs as berries. I'm afraid that I was not over-enamoured of the previous two cards/dies so did not leave a comment in fairness to those who do like them but you have pleasantly surprised me with your festive take on steampunk.

From afar, I didn't see how this die had cog berries, and I wondered why you needed such a big holly. The cog berries are cunning! Ffftttrrrfrrrr. Oops, that was me falling asleephhhhhh again!

Great reception for your risky endeavor, Sue.

Pussycats said...

Hello Sue and all
What can I say But WOW WOW WOW. I love Industrial Chic Holly Sprig , its brilliant. I do think its a brilliant idea changing the berries to cogs and also if you wanted to you could snip them away. This and the Santa have to be my favourite so far. The card is stunning on how you have created a wreath.
Wendy, Pussycats

Lovely card - the steampunk style is quite subtle, so the design works well even if you don't want the grungy industrial feel. This holly die makes a great wreath.
