Love the beautiful foiling on these holly leaves, Jaydee! It adds a touch of festive luxury. It sounds like you have had an amazing trip - glad you enjoyed the UK :)

Hi Jaydee! Your card is stunning! I've never seen foiling on a card before and I love it! It's so beautiful, I'd place your card in a frame and showcase it on the mantle!!! The font is lovely too. Thanks for sharing the link to Jennifer's blog to check out this fun technique.

Your trip sounds outstanding and so very interesting! So happy to hear that you both got some time away. I hope you'll share some pictures with us!

Missed you these last few weeks and just knew you were in the English country side. I just love the lake district and Edinburg and all the other places you visited sound intriguing. You card is stunning. Love the foiling.


What a brilliant idea to use holly - it's a leaf too!
Love your crystal effect BG and a perfectly crisp holly image.
Love it. x


Gorgeous card, love that you though of Christmas with the code word, most like myself immediately thought fall.


Beautiful card Jaydee. Have not tried foiling, but did watch Jennifer's video tutorial a while back and thought I should be a laminator and foil. Hasn't happened yet, but I'm hoping to get into trying this. Your holly leaves are so pretty and I love the red peals for the berries. But it all starts with your card base. Love the stitching detail and you pretty spray of gold. Sounds like you had a wonderful holiday! xx

Dear Jaydee,
Your trip sounds fabulous! I'm glad you shared it with us. Thank you also for the link to Jennifer's video. What a wow factor the foil has! I signed up for her newsletter while I was there. I highly recommend her videos. Have a great day!

Foiling? I was wondering how you achieved such a beautiful finish on your leaves and variation in the shades of green! Gorgeous CAS card, Jaydee...I love it!
So glad you had such a lovely holiday! I've only dreamed of seeing such beautiful places...how wonderful that these sights will be in your memory forever :)


Jaydee, great take on our challenge! You broke the associative chain, leaves - Fall, Winter - snowflakes :) Beautiful card, foil is always difficult to picture

Jaydee, love the look of the foil on your holly leaves! I'll have to give this technique a try soon. That little bit of gold spray on the background is perfect. I tend to spray too much too close and end up with a mess...but I'll keep trying...thanks for the inspiration.
