Joy to the world Christmas card


A 8x8in white easel card. I have matt and layered both the top and bottom with red card and white embossed card. The white card has been embossed using a Creative Expression embossing folder. I have used a Sue Wilson "Joy to the World" die and cut it out with a border and mounted it on red card. The poinsettia are cut using a Marianne die and embellished with fancy pearl. I have die cut rectangles using Tonic dies the white rectangle will have a personalised sentiment closer to Christmas. I love this layout because I like to personalise my cards and making easel cards allows me to put whatever on the top of the card and the stopper on the bottom also acts as somewhere to put my sentiment
