Handmade cards - Christmas Holly card.

OK, here we are with another easy design for you to customise in your own unique way.  Holly is wonderfully Christmassy and a plant which is only really truly appreciated this time of year, so to show our appreciation for this prickly symbol, we took a very standard design which we initially used in our November Crafty Box on a trivet for our crafters to make and placed it on a greetings card.
The trivet is also available in our bumper Christmas Craft Box, in which there are also materials to make angel decorations and a felt snowflake decoration, Christmas or 'thank you' cards and lots more to boot.



You will need;

  • card/heavy paper/old Christmas card
  • scraps of wrapping paper
  • white paint
  • paintbrush (or finger)
  • glue


Instructions;

  1. On a scrap of nice paper, draw two holly leaf shapes and cut them out
  2. Using a contrasting paper, cut out three small balls for berries
  3. Fold your card in half or use an old Christmas card and in the middle paint a messy large white snowball
  4. Arrange and stick your holly leaves in the snowball and then stick the berries in place
