Christmas Joy

 


Hey everyone. Anne here from Anne-Made sharing a Christmas card with you. It's never too early to start working on your Christmas cards. 😄

I've used the following dies from Tutti Designs to create this project:

Tutti Designs: Have A Merry Christmas (any of these would work as well)


I always struggle wit white on white cards, so I wanted to challenge myself for today's project.

I started out by creating some sparkly cardstock from a scrap of plain white. I added VersaMark all over and then heat embossed it with sparkly clear embossing powder.


Next I die cut the JOY letters and the Candy Cane from this piece.


I also die cut the JOY letters two more times and the Candy Cane one additional time from white cardstock. I wanted to give added dimension to all of these pieces and this is the easiest way to do it when you have intricate die cuts.



I also die cut the oval and the rectangle out of plain whie cardstock. I then ran the rectangle through an embossing folder.




The final die cut piece was my sentiment for the inside of my card.


This is what the inside looks like after I adhered the die cut.


Once everything was die cut and the layers glued together, the last part is the assembly of the card. I added dimensional tape tot the dry embossed rectangle before adhering it to the card base. Next I adhered the Candy Cane to the oval. 

I knew that I wanted these pieces to overhang the rectangle a bit, so I figured out where I wanted them to be before adhering.

Here's one final look at today's Christmas project:
