Christmas Joy and Glad Tidings – by Holly McMillen

$2.95 Shipping within the US – Current Shipping Special!

Good Monday morning! May we all be ready to begin a new week ahead. Holly is here today with a lovely Christmas card featuring the largest ornament from our Christmas Joy stamp set. She has a fun way of highlighting the ornament with a partial die cut layer/frame. Take a look:

Love this!

Holly used a standard oval die to cut out a portion of the top layer, revealing the ornament.

A few strips of silver mirrored paper add a bit of sparkle, glitz and glam!

Holly used Copic markers to color her ornament and I like how she colored the small diamonds to represent a reflection on the glass ball.

Really simple and really effective!

I love traditional themes in Christmas cards and the verse used here is so beautifully scripted and sends a message of the true meaning of Christmas.

Beautifully done, Holly! Thanks so much.
