Joy to the World

A Christmas card with a diagonal split front using a new set and coordinating stencil, making it easy and quick to add color to the images. A matching die is great if you want to add some dimension or layer it onto a different background.

A big congrats to Korimu, the newest Featured Stamper (FS874)! She has a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout & divided front panel, but I used different images & dies, different colors & made mine a Christmas card.

For my joyful bells, I stamped the image then used the coordinating stencil & the Color Fuse inks to sponge in the colors. It has a matching die, but I didn’t use it here. I took 2 leaf dies from a floral frame set & used them to cut the edge on a diagonal. After placing my panel on top of a larger green one, I positioned all the cut out leaf branches in place. I did some minor surgery on a couple of them to keep them from covering part of my greeting.

I replaced the stamped Joy of the greeting w/ a die cut Joy to help bring some of the red into the corner & also help balance out the image, size wise, & not seem top heavy on the upper right.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
