Christmas Joy


Hello!  I know that this set, Ivy Trails, was released a few weeks ago, but I wanted to share this card that I made using it.  The set, Lace Fragments, was released a few months ago.

       





The red card base is a textured cardstock from DCWV and the card is a standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  I stamped the poinsettia image from the above stamp set in dark green on white cardstock, and colored it in with Copic markers.  I used some Crystal Effects from Stampin' Up to make the leaves, berries and flower shiny.  I stamped the word Joy in black, and sponged a little around the edges of the oval with Tim Holtz Antique Linen ink.  The dry embossing was done with a brass embossing plate and my Cuttlebug.  The lace edge at the bottom was a stamp from the Lace Fragments set, which is a must-have set!  It was stamped in black on white and adhered to the back of the red panel.  I used a piece of white Vintage ribbon/lace to edge the border.  Everything was mounted on a piece of white cardstock.

  2. The gloss on this is spectacular & I love that lacey border - so effective with the white, black & red against the warmth of the Anitque Linen sponging.
