inspired by Dawn at Dawn's Stamping Thoughts. I rarely try anything too involved when making a card for fear of making a mess of it. However this one turned out pretty nicely and I may make a few more for Christmas:
Here is the first opening:
And, here is the inside of the card:
I had some patterned paper left over from my stamp club project for this month and decided to use it for this card. The Joy stamp is a very old one from a company called Westwater Enterprises. I purchased it in 1998! But it did fit in the opening and had holly to match the paper, so it was definitely the one to use. The inside greeting is from Hero Arts. I used some Stickles on the outside frame to jazz it up a little.
I've been busy this week working on some swaps that are due by the end of the month, so haven't had time to make more cards. Still working on the last swap; then it's full speed ahead on my Christmas cards!
Thanks for stopping by.
