A Little Holiday Joy...

I know it's the week of Thanksgiving so should be showing those types of projects. :) However...we have to get ready for Christmas also, right?! So here is a pretty quick Christmas card you could mass produce...
The day that I made this card I made a few others with the same layout. I will show you those next time. :) But I think it's a fun layout that you could easily switch around. Anyway...this one I just did an embossed background with the Big Shot and the Petals-A-Plenty embossing folder. Cut out a Top Note with my handy Big Shot and added the stamped images. The images are all from the "Welcome Christmas" stamp set. (I LOVE this stamp set!!!) The "joy" letters are embossed with Craft Chocolate Chip ink and clear embossing powder.
I also added a strip of the FABULOUS Candy Cane fabric. I just ripped about a 3/4" strip (and it was SO EASY to rip...went totally straight and I was a bit worried about that. :) ) and tied it around the card. Then I added a fun Candy Cane big button! Seriously...so much fun. I also spritzed the whole card with some shimmer spray I made with the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and rubbing alcohol...
This card was a lot of fun to make. Give it a try yourself! :)

Thanks for visiting!! Hope you enjoyed!!!! :)
