Joy, Merry and Bright

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Being a brand new month it is time to introduce our challenge hostess for October which is Tracey Farr.

For our challenge this week we are to .... Focus on the Sentiment - make your sentiment the star of your card, the bigger the better! 

I figured this was a good opportunity to play with my Spellbinders Joy die set I purchased a few weeks ago. I die cut the base of the sentiment from green cardstock and then cut the letters out using Elizabeth Craft Designs Solar Gold Silk Microfine Glitter. I then added the flowers and berries using colored cardstocks.

I used Altenew's Candy Cane Stripe Cover Plate for the background of my card, layering this onto red cardstock.

To finish off the front of my card I added the "Merry and Bright" sentiment which is from Holiday Sentiments Glimmer Plate and gold foil.

For the inside of my card I created a pop-up card using Karen Burniston's Katherine Label Pop-up die set. I gold embossed the sentiment which is a Penny Black stamp set.

I added the poinsettia to the upper left corner of the label which was created using the poinsettia dies included in Spellbinders Ornament die set.

Along the edges of my card I added the Candy Cane Stripes Cover Plate which I die cut from white cardstock and cut in half, adhering half on each edge. I then added the Pine Needles Border die which is an older die from Memory Box.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
