Christmas ~ Joy

Hello bloggers today I have a Christmas card for you!

This card began as a white DL card blank To the front I adhered some purple Christmas themed paper.  It has holly and berries on it if you can't tell from the photo.  Next I die cut 2 flourishes from some lilac paper and used Spellbinders fanciful holiday die set.   These were attached down the righthand side of the card.  Using pink cardstock I die cut 3 baubles with Spellbinders 'holiday tags' die set.  I also die cut 2 smaller baubles from the same set using some snowflake patterned paper.  I stamped the letters J and Y onto the patterned die cut baubles and O onto the plain pink one.  The top and bottom baubles were layered up and then all 3 were adhered to the card.  Using some cream ribbon I tied 3 small bows and attached them to the top of the 3 baubles.  Next using some scraps of purple Christmas paper I die cut several different snowflakes using Spellbinders 'snowflake wonder' die set. some of the snowflakes were coloured with a dark purple ProMarker to give a better colour definition.  The snowflakes were then layered up and a faux pearl added to the centres.
