Joyful Christmas Two Ways

I love the Joyful Christmas stamp set in Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Catalog.  As soon as I saw the card on page 10 of the catalog I knew I wanted to create something very similar for one of my monthly card clubs.  The card in the catalog is a larger square card.  I wanted to change it to fit in one of our medium envelopes.  Here's my version.

Supplies (all Stampin' Up!)
Stamp Set:  Christmas Messages
Card Stock:  Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Brushed Gold
Ink:  Gold Metallic Encore Pad, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories:  Pretty Print Embossing Folder, Expressions Thinlits Dies, Frosted Finishes Embellishments, Gold Embossing Powder

Did you notice that the Frosted Finishes Embellishment wasn't silver as it is in the catalog?  I heat embossed it with gold embossing powder so it would coordinate with the Brushed Gold card stock used for the "Merry" Expressions Thinlit.

While I was working on this card I decided to try another color combo.  Much softer and with silver instead of gold. 

So which do you prefer?


  1. Love love these. The red was fun to make. Love the pink also.

  2. Thanks, Judy. I'm working on another card with this beautiful poinsettia.
