Joy to the World

Hi there and welcome back and Happy Spring!!!

 Today I have my second card for March for the Holly and Ivy Challenge. I decided to go with a monochromatic card and do white on white.

 I recently bought a few articles from Lifescraft and one of them was this town houses and trees die. 

I ran it through my die cutting machine with white cardstock. Yellow cardstock was taped to the back of the die cuts to look like there was light coming from inside the houses. 

Next I ran the Cuttlebug dot embossing folder through with a piece of white cardstock. This would be my snowy background!

Adhesive foam was then added to the back of the die pieces.

The two pieces were then layered to the front of the snowy background.

The second piece was layered to the top of the first to give some dimension. The sentiment from an old Sparkle N Sprinkle set was stamped in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and heat embossed with Clear Detail.

This was then die cut with the Spellbinders Grommet Tag die.

The sentiment was attached to the front panel with pale yellow brads to finish my card off for today.

Hope you've enjoyed your visit today and that I have inspired you to join in the fun over at the Holly and the Ivy Challenge? It is always an anything goes theme and it is a great way to add to your 2022 Christmas card stash! You know how fast time flies!!

Till next time, take care!
