Circle of Joy Christmas Card


Hello everyone!  Heidi, here today and I have a Chrsitmas card to share with you using the Circle of Joy stamp

To start I stamped the image using VersaMark ink on to a piece of Strathmore mixed media paper.  Then, I added gold embossing powder and used a heat tool to melt and heat set the powder. Next, I colored the image using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.  All of the colors are listed below in the supplies.  

Here is a close up of the stamped image.  I layered the stamped image on to a piece of gold mirror paper and added foam squares for some dimenstion. To create the circle die cuts I used 145E Circle Layering Die Set and 1455E Scalloped Circle Layering Die Set from Tonic Studios. 

I added a piece of pattern paper from the KaiserCraft Christmas Wishes collection to a white A2 top folding card base.  Then I added some white/gold twine and tied a bow.  To keep the ends of the twine from fraying I added some Ranger Multi Medium Matte adhesive to the area I was going to cut.  It dries with a matte finish so you can't even see it's there.  Once it was dry I trimmed the ends on the twine--and no fraying.  

I hope you enjoyed this Christmas card.  Thanks for stopping by today!  Stay warm and Happy Holidays!
