Joy at Christmas Time

Good evening  Followers, Friends and Visitors,

Where has this month gone !! not long now before we celebrate Christmas and all it means.  Hope all your preparations are well under way or finished.   I still have one or two things to do such as ice my cake and wrap a couple more presents, then I'll be done !  whoopee, when they are done I'll feel ready to enjoy Christmas,  bring it on !!

I have another Christmas card to share with you tonight which I made for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Crafts in September 2010.  I have  used their beautiful 'Snow Globe' Stamp and is coloured with their  'Inkadinks'   They come in a large variety of colours and last for a long time.   I'm not sure that this stamp is still available as it was made 3 years ago.  So let's begin making the card below.   Hope you like it.

Make a base card, landscape style from black card.   Onto this matt some pale green card, just slightly smaller than the black card.   Next matt a piece of  black card onto the green leaving a small border of green showing.

Take a piece of white card just smaller than the black and using the black inkpad, stamp a row of poinsettias along the top and bottom of the white card.   Fix this to the black card.

Take a piece of black ribbed card and matt onto the white card.   Next using  a Cricut machine or similar, cut out the letters JOY  three and a half inches high.   Colour with the inkadinks.   Stamp the poinsettia over each letter and paint with the Inkadinks.

Stamp the 'Snow Globe' onto some white card with the black ink pad and colour with the Inkadinks.   Place the 'Snow Globe' behind the letter 'O' then fix the word 'JOY'to the base card.

Onto some spare white card, stamp the poinsettias a further 25 times,   paint them with the Inkadinks, cut them out and glue them to the front of the card, fixing 4 of them only to the black and white borders.

Add some glitter glue to the 'Snow Globe' and the flower centres.   Well that's it finished, it does take a little time to cut out the small poinsettias but I feel it is worth it as they add some dimension to the card.

Take care until I return in a few days with another card.   Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and
