Wishing you a Season of Joy!

Wishing you a Season of Joy & Wonder! Isn’t that a beautiful sentiment for a Christmas card? I’m sharing a happy card today made with products from the SSS Exclusive Create Joy Release. The Chisholm Wreath Die and So Very Merry Stamp Set work just right together. I used traditional red and green Christmas colors and then popped in some pretty Maliblue snow using the Falling Snow background stamp.

My card base and top layer are made from cream cardstock for more of a vintage feeling. The sentiment was stamped in brown ink onto a strip of cream cardstock and then hand cut into a casual banner. I die cut the wreath pieces from different colors of cardstock. You could really have fun with this by using different colors! I gently inked the edges of my card base and banner with a sponge dauber and Antique Linen Distress Ink.

I glued the wreath down with some clear glue at the top and bottom. Then I slipped my banner underneath the wreath on the sides and glued it down. I popped up the birds with foam squares and added pretty red enamel dots.
