Christmas Joy

I know you all must be feeling the same way I am: Wasn't it just Halloween like yesterday? Is it really Thanksgiving next week? And because of all that, something happened yesterday that has never happened to me before: I listened to Christmas music BEFORE Thanksgiving for about half an hour haha! Then I came to my senses. :D

But, that won't keep me from sharing a Christmas card I made this week using products from Stamp Simply!

I started with some very light kraft cardstock for my background, and stenciled using Festive Berries DOX. On the kraft, it came out a bit more pink than red, but as pink is my favorite, I'm not complaining! Using a darker kraft, I stamped my ornaments and embossed them with gold, then cut out with the matching dies. The cute bow ornament hangers are so easy to line up with my MISTI. I stamped the JOY right on the stenciled background and embossed that as well. 

Using Gathered Twigs DOX, I sponged around the edges of the panel, and also in some places in the middle, then embossed the edges with gold. My favorite metallic thread (in gold this time) and a couple of pearls finished off the front panel. I mounted on a beautiful metallic gold (looks yellow, but is really a shimmery gold) and then on the card base of brick red with a lovely shimmery metallic copper. It's different, but I like it!
