Handmade Christmas Card: Joy to the World!

September is here, and that means Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Mini is live!  Here's another sample from my favorite stamp set, The Sounding Joy:

I love this stamp with the words to "Joy to the World" laid out in a star pattern.  It is stamped in Always Artichoke, and makes a great background for the elegant font embossed in Cherry Cobbler.  I used Very Vanilla and Cherry Cobbler card stock circles, and added Gold Lame Smooch Spritz.  The Always Artichoke background is embossed with the Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder.

I used the Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding in a way that makes the card look like a wrapped Christmas present.  The double bow is topped with a Garden Green Designer Button from the Regals collection.  I couldn't resist the Mini Jingle Bells, tied with Cherry Cobbler and White Baker's Twine.

    OMG Sage that is beautiful. Too bad you’re not swapping on Friday; we are all truly missing out.
