Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Card Sketch: Joyful Christmas Greetings

Good morning!  It's really starting to feel like Christmas, the decorations are up, we had a neighborhood cookie exchange this weekend and lots of holiday fun.  I love this time of year.  Of course I decided to make a Christmas card for this month's Stampin' Stylin' INKspiration card sketch challenge.  This was such a fun sketch and as soon as a saw it I knew I wanted to use the Wonderful Wreath Framelits for the great die cut words.  I started with Lost Lagoon for the cardbase and then added some Pear Pizzaz cardstock that I embossed with the Big Shot and Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder.  Next I took a piece of All is Calm Speciality Designer Series Paper and cut it out with the Windows Collection Framelits.  The next layer is a piece of Soft Sky cardstock and I stamped a star from the Many Merry Stars stamp set with Lost Lagoon ink before cutting it out with the Star Collection Framelits.  A dimensional helps the star pop up.

I used a piece of 5/8" Whisper White Organza Ribbon and ruffled it along the bottom of my design element (adding a piece of Sticky Strip makes it a breeze to ruffle the ribbon and make it stay in place perfectly).  The over the top touch was using the Silver Glimmer Paper (you know how much I love this stuff!) and cut out the "Joy" using the Wonderful Wreath Framelit.  I have to admit this framelit set has lots of fun elements and I had fun playing around with it this weekend.
Please go and check out the other cards the design team shared for inspiration and then come play along.  We love for you to share your creations so we can enjoy all the fun.
