Mirror paper for the jingle bells, notice how round they are. I use a large ball head stylus on a foam pad to dry emboss and shape these bells. That takes the flat and boring to a new dimension, can you heard them jingle? I used 3 layers for "JOY" and the snow flakes. I think it makes a statement.
I agree with Loll I like the look of layered elements. Loll is an amazing and gifted designer. Her cards are jaw dropping gorgeous. I imagine that is why she has so many followers. You'll love her work.
I've cut several JOY cards using both the positive and the negative cuts. It's a great word JOY so simple yet deeply meaningful. My name "Carole" is defined as a joyful noise. I'm a Christmas Carol singing a creation of joy cards.
Using some really wonderful papers from
K & Company, so rich with quality the card creates itself. Directing the colors to compliment and the embellishments to enhance. You might notice several flourishes sweet little ornaments or candy canes. All my little treasures waiting to be proudly displayed.
I'm having difficulty with moving the cards around to create some kind of order. I think I will just center and enter for your viewing ease.
Well I've been having a whole lot of JOY creating and playing with paper. Pretty good right?
