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.
