Hi everyone! This Christmas card is quite easy to make and has a lot of glitter! The Joy sentiment is actually the coordinating die of the Joy hot foil plate. As you can see, it also works perfectly as a standalone die!
Before I’m diving into the cardmaking process, I want to mention we have a challenge running over at Cloud9 Crafts. The theme of this month is “Big Sentiments”. Head over to Instagram to see how you can participate and be eligible to win a prize!
First I die cut the Joy sentiment 3 times out of colored cardstock: Ballet Slippers, Guava, and Chili Pepper. To give them more of a snowy Christmas vibe, I wanted to coat the tops with sparkling embossing powder. With a VersaMark pen I went over the top parts of the sentiment, trying to apply the ink in an organic way. Then I coated it in Cloud9 embossing powder and heat set it. This embossing powder is silver with glitter in it, perfect for the holidays!
For the background I used the Holiday City background stamp, and also used the same embossing powder as for the Joy sentiments. The city background I matted with Chili Pepper cardstock, and the Joy sentiments I adhered with foam tape to make them stand out. In between the Joy sentiments, I also added a sub sentiment from Iconic Ornament.
I hope you like this card, and it gave you inspiration. Thank you for stopping by and see you next time!
