JOY

I'm still trying to catch up with making Christmas cards as well as using as much as possible from my snippets mountain.

For this card I embossed a piece of white card and trimmed around the edges before layering it onto a piece of red embossed card and attaching it to the card blank.  I die cut JOY from red card and attached the 'J' and 'Y' to the centre of the panel.  I die cut three poinsettias from red card, layered them and attached them to the centre of the card.  To finish I die cut seven small gold dots and attached them to the centre of the poinsettia.

To make this card I used:   
     6" x 4" white matt card blank
     Creative Expressions 'Festive Collection - Joy', All Occasion Dies 'Small Poinsettia' and Memory Box 'Mini Holly Leaves'
     X-cut 'Swirls' embossing folder
     Snippets of dark red embossed card, white matt card and gold mirri

I'm not entering any challenges with this card as I CASEd it from Darnell's JOY card in her Christmas Parade - thank you for the inspiration Darnell!
