Week 4 of Christmas Featuring Stampin'Up Joy of Noel & Merriest Trees in a Holiday Card!

Today we're creating Week 4 of Christmas Featuring Stampin'Up! Joy of Noel & Merriest Trees in Holiday Card!  This card combines a couple of fun sets along with two beautiful papers from the Joy of Christmas Designer Series Paper.

Here's today's design...


& a closer view...

Card cu

Both the marbled red & the marbled green are from the Joy of Christmas DSP...they add just enough interest to grab your attention but not so much that they draw your eye away from the focal point.

We've used the largest greenery & berry image in the Joy of Noel set...a beautiful classic image. We then added a bit of Distressed Gold tiny holly leaves to spark up the arrangement. Tucked behind the greenery die cut are two double pine sprigs in gold foil--they just peep out the side enough to add festivity & keep the attention on the focal point.

The greeting is just the perfect size & shape for the lower right corner & using the gold embossing powder makes it festive and stunning. Speaking of festive we embellished just a bit with 3 gold Festive Pears that sprinkle some shine to the right side of the card.

I'll give you step by step directions for today's project below followed by the supply list.
