Christmas Joy

Sentiment only is the theme of this week’s challenge at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges. The idea is to create your Christmas card with the sentiment being the focus of the card. That was a pretty easy assignment for me with this Joy stamp that I had in my stash. This set is unmounted and of course I do not know the company who made the set. The set consisted of the stamped letters and two different types of wreaths that substitute for the "O" in Joy.

I embossed the two letters in a burgundy embossing powder and the wreath in a gold gold embossing powder. I added a few layers of coordinating papers, ribbon and button and this simple card was complete.

Come join us at Holly Jolly this week. If you need some inspirational ideas check out the cards of the other Christmas elves here.
