2015 Holiday Card Series #4: Joy to the World

This card design is option #2 for the annual Christmas cards my brother has commissioned me to make for his company this year.  I plan to present him with 3 card options that all have a clean and simple design and do not include any [time-consuming] coloring.  😉


I began by trimming a sheet of light blue cardstock down to 3.75″ x 5.5″, then pressed this panel onto the Simon Says Stamp Wide Stripes Background stamp inked up with SSS Sea Glass ink.  Next, I prepped the card front with an EK Success powder tool, then stamped the sentiment from SSS Peace on Earth on the lower right of the card in Versamark ink.  I then stamped trios of snowflakes from Lawn Fawn’s Deck the Halls trailing down from the upper left corner to the lower right corner and heat embossed all of the stamping using Ranger Silver Super Fine Detail embossing powder.

I finished the card by adhering the light blue panel to a top-fold A2 navy cardstock base, added a scattering of Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Mix sequins, then tied on a white ribbon at the top of the card.

I am submitting this card to the current SSS Wednesday Challenge (Anything Goes) and SSS Flickr Challenge #31 (Anything Goes).

Thanks for stopping by!
