This is actually the card I made last year for Christmas. The base shape is from Storybook, cut 3 times, each 1/2" smaller than the last. The holly leaves are from Winter Woodlands, and I covered them with Glossy Accents.The ribbon is from Basic Grey.

I hope you liked my cards! Your next stop is Rochelle
