Take Two Thursday: Paper Smooches

Hey, hey!

How has your week been going so far?  Good I hope.  Take Two Thursday came around really fast for me!  For this installment, Katie and I are playing with the Holly Jolly set from Paper Smooches, which i {heart} papers carries, yeah!  I just love it, it is such a cute set!  Both of my cards are clean and simple, just the way I like it, and fit perfectly with Virginia's latest challenge, Clean and Simple!

I took a white card base, and stamped my sentiment first.  Then I stamped the garland images in different Hero Arts Shadow Inks, and went back in with the dots, stamping those throughout the design.

I decided I liked it the way it was, so I didn't embellish it any further.  How about another? 

I stamped my sentiment, and then added the berry cluster, and the holly leaves.  I then colored them in with Copic Markers.  I finished it off by adding Glossy Accents to the berries.

Two Christmas cards down, a million to go!  HAHA!  Hop on over to see what Katie did with this set, I am positive that it will be clever.  Seriously, I always walk away from her cards, thinking, why didn't I think of that? 

Have a great day!

Edited to add:
I completely forgot to mention my winner from the World Card Making Day i {heart} papers gift certificate!  Where is my brain?  That winner is, #4 Ruby N!  Thanks so much for all of your comments, guys!
