For my card, I started with my Holly Photo Frame  and my Holly Strip stamping them with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Cryogen paper.  I colored the Holly with YG23 and R37 and then colored the background with E50.  Trimming out just the outside of the frame, I added a photo of my basset hounds, Molly and Zeke from Christmas 2003 then mounted it onto red card stock.  I used this wonderful new holly patterned paper from the Christmas Eve Chowder 6x6 paper pad by Jillibean Soup as well as the striped border piece.  I trimmed the edge of the Holly Strip and added it to the bottom of my card stock.  For the sentiment, I used one of the inside panels of the Holly Photo Frame adding a  Merry Christmas from the Posy Winter Greetings stamp set.  Using Holly Sq. Lg. and stamping it twice, I trimmed out just the holly and added them to the card.  The last step was to add Crystal Viva Glass Effect Gel to the holly berries for extra shine.  Finished size is 5 x 7 inches.

Oh my goodness! Molly and Zeke are just darling! The setting of the photo has me expecting them to break out in caroles... and knowing basset hounds they just might. I love that Holly frame image... What a great way to make photo cards for the holiday.

A frameable piece of art, Sandy. Love the way you did the background and border to Molly and Zeke's photo. So adorable.
