And now that we’ve got all those details out of the way, onto my project---Today I’m sharing a card I made using the new Holiday Joy stamp set.  I chose to use a simple design so you could make a lot of these fairly quickly (assembly line style) for your holiday card list.  I like using a more non-traditional colour palette on my holiday cards so that they can be used for everyone, regardless of whether they celebrate Christmas or not.   Scroll down below the images for my supply list and full instructions.  Thanks so much for stopping by!!

  1. Dry emboss light teal cardstock with holiday themed embossing folder, lightly sand around edges (to reveal core) and distress edges with white pigment ink.  Mat onto white scalloped rectangle (I created mine by gluing two Nestabilities rectangles together) and then adhere to white cardstock card base.
  2. Die cut bracket shape out of white cardstock (marker friendly) and teal patterned paper.  Cut the patterned paper in half and adhere to bottom of white die cut bracket (for each patterned paper die you can make two center panels so keep the extra).
  3. Stamp “Joy” image in black ink onto white part of cardstock and colour with markers.
  4. Add strip of ruffled ribbon and baker’s twine across paper seam (I purchased the ribbon already ruffled at a fabric store).  Ink edges of teal portion of panel with white ink and adhere to card base using dimensional adhesive.
  5. Embellish image with glitter glue and add twine bow and button.
