Oh Joy Part 2 – A Quick and Easy Christmas Card

In keeping with my resolution (and it isn’t even New Year’s yet) of getting my holiday cards done with plenty of time to mail them, here is the second in this series.  If you thought the last one was easy, just wait until you see this one!

Joy w

Looks scrumptious, right?

It starts with a card base of Fresh Fig cardstock cut 4-14″ x 11″ and scored and folded at 5-1/2″.  Next comes a layer of Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper cut 4″ x 4″.  That means you can get 9 cards out of one sheet of DSP!  This panel is adhered to the card base with Tombow glue.  To hide the seam, I use a strip of the gold washi tape from the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape pack.  This time I only ran it the width of the designer series paper for a clean look.

The sentiment is from Watercolor Christmas and was heat embossed on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock using Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  This was then cut out using one of the Stitched Shapes Framelits oval dies and then adhered to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For embellishments, I tied a double loop bow with the 1/4″ Copper Trim and attached it to the left side of the card, on top of the washi tape, using a Mini Glue Dot.  Lastly, three Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added (one on the bow and the other two on the sentiment panel) as finishing touches.

And – we’re done!  See, I told you this one was super easy!  I hope you enjoyed learning about this project.  Let me know if you have any questions about how to create this lovely holiday card.  As always, I would love to be your demonstrator – you can shop for everything used for this card by clicking on the shopping icon in the upper right corner of your screen.

Thanks!  See you for the next card in the series coming up soon!
