Joy To The World Card with Hero Arts
Hello everyone!! I love Pinterest. I admit that I can spend hours on this site finding inspiration with all the amazing talent in the world! Sometimes something on a card or project gets the gears in my head moving. This was one of those times.
Today's card was inspired by this card that I found on Pinterest-
It was made by a woman named Lynn Mangan and you can click HERE to see her original blog post from 2011. And, since my mind works in strange ways, I focused on the wreath/circle stamps because I remembered that I have a stamp set by The Scrapbook Diaries that would work. This card really started because of the above card and a circle stamp.
After almost 25 years of stamping I have a mountain of images I have bought but never used. I've had some fun lately digging into that vault and pulling out some great stamps! Today I am using a Hero Arts set called Merriest Christmas Wishes. They don't make it anymore but you can still find it online and Ebay.
First I cut my papers - an A2 card base of white cardstock to which I adhered a piece of designer paper, a piece of black cardstock 4" x 5.25", and a piece of Kraft cardstock 3 7/8" x 5 1/8".
Because I wanted this image to be really black, I pulled out my Misti and stamped the image 3 times with Onyx Black Versafine ink. Then I placed the 3rd largest die from the Stitched Circle Layers set over the image, secured it with tape, and ran it through my Big Shot.
Next I took the piece of Kraft cardstock and stamped the largest of the stitched circles from the Beauty & Grunge set by The Scrapbook Diaries (the image this whole card was formed around) - with Versamark ink and white embossing powder.
Then I adhered the Kraft cardstock to the black cardstock, which I then adhered to the card front.
Then I adhered the stitched circle to the center of the white embossed image.
Then I stamped the phrase "Joy To The World" from the same set, with Versamark ink and white embossing powder. Heat set. Then cut and layered it on a piece of red cardstock and applied some gold/red sequins around the card front. Done!!
Well I hope you enjoyed this card. Feel free to share or leave comments. Until next time...
