Christmas Joy


Hi everyone!  Here's a CAS Christmas card that I made using a sentiment from Sugar Creek Hollow called Christmas Joy. The sentiment was punched out using an ornament punch. Next, my ' faux ornament ' was sponged with some rhubarb stalk Memento Ink before heat embossing... One coat of clear EP mixed with dazzling diamonds and 2 coats of Utee.  This technique gave the ornament some dimension and a nice glittery shine which was hard to capture in my photograph.

My card qualifies for the following challenges:
Stamp Something Challenge:  Something Punchy --  I used a label and ornament punches,  as well as a Sizzix die.
Cute Card Thursday Challenge #133:  Make your Own -- I made my ornament using a SCH sentiment, SU! ornament   punch, silver cord, dazzling diamonds, Utee, Clear EP

Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend!  Thanks so much for your support!
Supplies:  Digital Stamp -- Sugar Creek Hollow-Christmas Joy; Paper: PTI white, SU! basic black, SEI winter song DSP; Ink - computer, Memento - rhubarb stalk, VersaMark; Accessories - Spellbinders die, SU! punches, SU! silver cord, Sizzix EF, dazzling diamonds, Utee, clear EP, Recollection silver rhinestones, Stampendous silver diamond dots.
