Joy to the World Card

Good Morning!  I'm excited to be posting my first card for Waffle Flower Crafts today!  With Christmas right around the corner, I thought a holiday card would be perfect.  I pulled out the Holiday Labels- Merry stamp set as inspiration and created this:

I had it in my mind to create a collage card and started by stamping the snowflakes in different shades of pink along the left and bottom side of the white card base.  I love pink and green together so next, I pulled out a green mist and splattered it over the same area.  I set it aside to dry and started with the other layers.

Tags make a great layer when creating collage cards.  I stamped the polka-dot tag from Surface-Tag stamp set with a bright pink ink and diecut it using the coordinating Surface- Tag Die- Starter Kit die set.  I also stamped my sentiment with green ink and diecut it using the Holiday Label-1 Die.

I pulled some gold striped vellum and a bit of green patterned paper from my stash to also use as layers and got to work building my card.  I layered them on top of each other, adhering as I went.  The tag layers were added using dimensional foam dots which adds to the layered look.  I finished it off with a bit of gold sequin trim for some sparkle :)

I think layered collage cards might be my favorite kind to make.  It's fun to start out messy and include many different elements into one card.

Thanks for popping by today!
