Christmas Joy


I have a Christmas card to share today that was made with Tim Holtz stamps and matching dies as well as some Lawn Fawn stitched hillside dies. The gold-embossed deer was done on kraft and die-cut with a TH set of stamps and dies which includes the word "Joy" as well as the holly around his neck. I used snippets of wild wasabi card for the holly and dotted it with red liquid pearls, while I stamped the sentiment with real red ink on white and cut it using the matching die. The trees were cut with another Tim Holtz die from dark green card. The wooden background was done with a SNSS wooden strip stamp in assorted shades of brown on a kraft panel.

I'm sharing this with the CHNC 360 challenge - always Christmas

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a great day whatever you're doing!

This is so very gorgeous Carol. I love your darling scene and that deer is so fun with his fancy coat and the sprig of holly on him.

Such a pretty card, Carol! Love all the dies especially those stitched snowy hills! I gotta get myself some of those! (Maybe I need to ask Santa!) That Hardwood background stamp adds so much to your beautiful snowy scene! TFS and have a wonderful week ahead. Hugs~
