Joy

I know that Christmas is two months away but everyone is posting such neat cards that I just had to make one. Plus, I got a new stash of the Basic Grey Figgy Pudding.



A close up of all of the glitter bling


Supplies:
Basic Grey Figgy Pudding patterned paper
Bazzill cardstock
Basic Grey undressed snowflake
Chocolate brown ribbon from stash
Button from bag of buttons but I don't remember which brand
Basic Grey rubons
Basic Grey reindeer stamp
Stickles--Diamond
Cricut machine for scallop squares
Martha Stewart glitter and glitter glue
Thickers letters for "joy"

Boy was this fun! The glitter was the best part and it's probably still all over me! I love making cards where I get down and dirty with the creation. I started with Bazzill cardstock as the base. I cut two scalloped squares with my Cricut using the Mini Monograms cartridge. I used a long piece of ribbon to tie a bow around the top layer of the Basic Grey Figgy Pudding paper....which is delicious! I glittered up the snowflake and put a cute button in the center that matches the blue Bazzill. I added the word "joy" in the corner using my Thickers letters from American Crafts...also very yummy. I stamped the reindeer head from a Basic Grey acrylic set and then Stickled it like crazy. I added rubons to the corners of the paper that the reindeer is stamped on. Oh, what great fun this was to make!
