Joyous Christmas

Today's my turn for an Inspirational Post over at Bearly Mine Designs.  Bearly Mine has some absolutely gorgeous digital paper packs for almost any occasion.  Please take a look through the store and see what Donna has in stock.  Many of the paper packs have upwards of 25-40 pieces of digital paper in each pack.  You truly get your money's worth, and MORE!

This Inspirational Card was made using papers from the Bearly Mine Designs' Christmas Ice paper pack.  Here's a preview of the set I used:

I used the white on white holiday words for the background and the white on white snowflakes for the strips across.  I sponged the edges of each of these papers with Stampin' Up's Pool Party, and used the cardstock with the same name for the base, mats, and "Joy".
The image is a lovely one from Saturated Canary called Spritz.  He's such a darling little elf.  I kept his colors a little light for a different Christmas color combination.  He was colored with Copics and then cut out with a Nestabilities die.  Before removing from the die, I sponged inside the die to give it a faux frame look, again with Pool Party.  I finished off with a pretty white ribbon and the word "J-o-y".  I ended up using my Cricut because my Cameo is being stubborn and not 'connecting' ... need to figure out if it's the set up, the cord, or what ... It worked fine the other day, but now it's refusing to cooperate.

Here's a close up view:
 
Please check out the Bearly Mine Designs Challenge Blog, create a card that is Christmas or whatever holiday you celebrate during the month of December, and post it to the challenge links.
 
Hope you enjoyed the card.
Have a wonderful day!
