Joyful Christmas Wishes



My card today was inspired by Connie Babbert.   She used the poinsettia from Reason for the Season, but since I don't have that set, I pulled out last year's Joyful Christmas and made it work!  I love the combination of Cherry Cobbler and Gold.  The addition of Crumb Cake makes it a little less formal -- it is one of my favorite neutrals.


I heat embossed the poinsettia image with gold embossing powder on Whisper White.  I cut the flower out with my Paper Snips and adhered it with Dimensionals.  I took my 1/8" circle handheld punch and punched out 8 tiny circles from gold Glimmer Paper for the center of the flower.

The Gold Foil strip is 4" x 1 1/2" and the Cherry Cobbler strip is 4" x 3/4".  The vertical strip of Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum paper is 5 1/4" x 1 1/2".

Inside I put a strip of gold and white Washi Tape and the sentiment from Joyful Christmas.  Although you cannot buy Joyful Christmas anymore, Reason for the Season is a beautiful current alternative.  It can be found on page 31 of the 2015 Holiday Catalog.

I hope each of you has a Joyful Christmas!  It will be here before we know it!
