The Joy of Christmas card

Hi everyone,
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas.  I wanted to show you one of the Christmas cards I created this year.  Although Christmas is over, you can use this technique year round.
You don't need a ton of stamps to create a beautiful card.  This lovely  card uses just one stamp.
Blank Page Muse Products used:
Holly and Branches Stamp

Other Products Used:
Distress Markers
Distress Ink- Pumice Stone
Emerald Creek Embossing Powder in Charred Gold
Tim Holtz Holiday Words Script Die and Funky Festive
Chipboard Doily Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts
Stamp Platform
Circle Punch

Start by trimming your card to the size you want it to be or use a precut card.
Mount your stamp to your stamp platform.  Color the stamp using various markers.

Don't be afraid to layer your colors.  The leaves will all turn out just a tad different and add a more realistic feel to your card.  If the marker dries as you are coloring just breathe on the stamp and it will rehydrate the ink.

Cover the entire piece of the card.  Once the holly is all stamped cover the entire card with a bit of Pumice Stone Distress Ink to age it.  

Mount the base to the card.  Add a bit of ribbon.  
Punch a circle out and color it using a bit of Pumice Stone Distress Ink.  Use the outer ring of the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Doily and emboss it.  Attach the doily to the circle.  Attach the circle to the card. 
Use the Tim Holtz Script to die cut the word "joy" and adhere it to the center of the circle. 
Add some holly cut from the Festive Funky die set to finish off the corner. 

This will be my final monthly post for Blank Page Muse.  I have so enjoyed my time with the team over the past year.  I absolutely love the product, so this will not be the last you see of me!
Have a wonderful New Year,
