Four more Christmas cards for my stash!!! I made these with the JOYs that I cut out when I made these cards. I made three of the pink and one of the purple. I cut the frames using a small frame die (SX) and backed them with a coordinating colour. Next, I glued my letters to fit inside the frame. I mounted the decorative paper to the card front, added my ribbon and mounted my focal element overlapping the ribbon using 3D foam tape. For the purple one I added three short pieces of silver cording tied to the ribbon and for the pinks ones I just added one short piece of the same organza ribbon. I added glitter gel pen to the frame of the purple one and iridescent glitter glue on the pink ones. The decorative paper on the purple one is some background paper I made using watercolour and a custom stamp I made using fun foam snowflakes. The design was very subtle so to punch it up a bit I added some stamped snowflakes to it.
I have 14 cards left over from last year, added five ornament ones and these four make a total of 23!!
