Your Presents.... Joy

Oh, what fun this card is....

This is a swap card I made recently.  It was so fun to play with some of my products that I hadn't used much yet.....

Plus, I will always love this traditional color combination for the holidays.....

We start our card with a Real Red card base, then added a layer of Whisper White card stock.

On the left side of the card, we added a strip of the Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum.  Those real red diagonal stripes remind me of a candy cane - what do you think??  Leave me a comment below and let me know!

Next, we added a narrow strip of Garden Green card stock, along with a strip of the Garden Green 1/8" Striped Ribbon.

Real Red & Garden Green 1/8" Striped Ribbon  139615  $8.00

Next, we stamped "joy" (from the Your Presents Stamp Set) on the bottom of our card in Garden Green ink.

Finally, we made the "ornaments" by stamping them in Garden Green and Real Red ink and punching them out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch.  The plaid Garden Green ornament was stamped once, re- inked and stamped again in the opposite direction to make the plaid look.  How fun is that!

We also stamped the ornament toppers directly onto our card in Basic Black ink and then adhered our ornaments to the card with Dimensionals.  The ornament strings were hand-drawn with our Garden Green Stampin' Write Marker.

1 1/4" Circle Punch  119861  $16.0

Stampin' Dimensionals  104430  $4.00

Regals Stampin' Write Marker  131262  $29.00

I hope you enjoyed this card!
