Christmas Joy

Morning, Today's card has been made with papers from the paper pads and the New Wonder Embossing Crystals that Justin & Gordon from Be Creative launched on Hochanda for the Birthday Week.

The paper pads have been great to work with and are such great quality. I took the pine tree sheet from the pad for this card and used the full sheet.

To start with I blended around the edges just to add a little distressing, here I used Faded Jeans, but any of the blues would work well for this particular card depending on your embellishments.

From an identical sheet from the pad I cut 'Joy' from Sue Wilson along with a frame from the same die set. I cut an inner oval on a sheet of plain card which I had already stuck a Wonder Sheet to.

I took another sheet of card which was covered with a Wonder Sheet, from this I cut a selection of poinsettias in different sizes using a die set from Sue Wilson.

Next I added some Faded Jeans Distress Ink to the 'Joy' and the frame.

I stuck the oval Wonder Sheet to the back of my main oval after peeling the coating off, I placed the 'Joy' back inside.

I then poured over 'Midnight Blue' Diamond Sparkles which stuck to the wonder sheet. I also secured the frame using Cosmic Shimmer.

I stamped my sentiment from the new stamp set and layered the card onto cream and blue card.

Using foam tape I raised the 'Joy' topper from the card for dimension.

Having embossed all of the poinsettias using the Celebration Red Wonder Crystals, I shaped them with a ball tool, layered them and secured to my card using Collall 3D glue gel.

I am so pleased that you have stopped by to look at the finished project. I do hope that you have enjoyed the Step by Step. Please stop by again very soon. Take care and Happy Crafting.xx
