Determined to join in again with Darnell's NBUS challenge I headed to the crafty cupboard and pulled out a Sizzix Tim Holtz 'Holiday Joy' stamp and die set which I won from the lovely Miss Di over at Pixie's Playground back in November last year and (hanging head in shame) is just getting its' first outing. There are quite a few images in this set but I have just used the 'JOY' stamp which I cut with the matching die. The background has been embossed with a Die'sire Embossalicious folder and matted onto a red card blank before adding a Memory Box 'snowflake border' die and the TH 'joy' sentiment stamp/die. To finish I just added a single silver gem.
This is one of the quickest and easiest christmas cards I've made and would have been ideal for a batch make if only that hadn't been my last coloured card blank!
