Never Too Early for Joy

Yes, I realize that it's October and that it's a bit early for Christmas...but, we crafters need to plan ahead! Here is another card made with Stampin' Up!'s Cardinal Christmas stamp set. The "Joy" at the bottom is from the Big Shot die, Join in the Cheer, which is exclusive to Stampin' Up! It's several words together and I just cut that one off.

The Designer Paper is Holiday Treasures from the main catalog. It's absolutely gorgeous and the little thumbnails in the catalog don't do it justice.

Other details:

Stamps: Cardinal Christmas

Cardstock/Paper: Ruby Red, Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Holiday Treasures DSP

Ink: Ruby Red, Close to Cocoa and Old Olive markers; Ruby Red Classic ink pad

Accessories: Gold Brads, Alpine Ribbon Originals from Holiday mini

Until next time, Happy Stamping!

What a beautiful card Sharon - how did you make the little swirly's on either side of the joy? At my WCMD event we made Christmas cards - it does seem a little early, but when the holidays get here - we'll be glad we did!!!
