Joy Christmas Card

Good day!  I hope you've had a chance to stop over at the Spellbinders' 12 Days of Christmas Blog post today!  I share a new die - S4-434 Holiday Greetings - and a technique to use Scor-Tape and glitter.  Yesterday, I posted a peek at another card created with the word "JOY" and snowflakes from Holiday Greetings die.  Here's the card.........

It's a different take on holiday colors!  I was experimenting with the die cuts using black paper. I couldn't just throw away this glitter strip with black letters!  So I rubbed the "JOY" letters with DecoArt Metallic Lustre Champagne Ice.  It adds the silver looking color on embossed areas.  It's layered over a piece of stripe ribbon.  I distressed a piece of music paper and sewed it to a black card. The 3 snowflakes are also die cuts from Holiday Greetings die.  There are 3 pieces of narrow ribbon glued across the bottom of the card with 3 silver beads on one.  I stamped a holiday script over the music but it's not very visible.  It adds a little character to the music paper! 

I hope you've enjoyed this card as well as the cards on Spellbinders' Day 6 of 12 Days of Christmas blog hop! 

Happy Creating!
