Christmas Joy - Ribbon And Rosette Card

I LOVE Polka Dots!  Polka Dot Designer Series Papers, Ribbon, Embossing Folders, Fabric,and clothing too!  Why… not too sure I have an answer for that, LOL.

Today’s Joy Christmas card share was inspired by a polka dot piece of  Holly Berry Bouquet Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP), and yesterday’s Lace Rosette and Stapled Ribbon Tutorial.  Hope you like it!1.joy_Card_stapeled_ribbon_And_Rosette

The holly leaves are actually from the Stocking Builders Accent Die, and cut with my Big Shot Machine.  Rhinestone “berries” were colored with a red sharpie marker, and “Joy” is die cut from a retired “Join in the Cheer” Sizzlit Decorative Strip.2.holly_LEaves

After scoring the holly leave die cuts on my Simply Scored board, the crease, edges, and surface were sponged with a sponge dauber inked with old olive classic ink.  The leaves were then attached to the Newsprint DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals.3.stapled_Ribbon_accent_View

Of course… you probably recognize the stapled ribbon from yesterday’s tutorial…4.lace_Rosette_on_Ribbon_And_Card

And the lovely lace rosette with an antique brad embellished center.5.profile_View_Joy_CHristmas_Card

The only things ‘popped’ on today’s card were the leaves and rosette… otherwise, a few layers, but a very flat profile.

With Christmas just around the corner, this year we’re trying to simplify our holiday… the tree is up, a couple wreaths inside and out, and cookies have been made.   LOL… Christmas cards have been made, but still haven’t been mailed… maybe tomorrow!  Winking smile Don’t sweat the small stuff, right?



Pin It!

Hi CAndy, my Joy came from a sizzlit banner which included the word joy along with peace and love. Of course there are a couple stamp sets with the word Joy in it too. And there are also alphabet stamps which you could stamp and then simply punch the words out!
Hugs, thanks for your sweet comments!
