Just a few more Christmas Cards then it will be time to celebrate the beginning of a new year - 2008! And already it's looking like it's going to be a GREAT one! Gotta love that Cuttlebug - well I love mine anyhow! The Cuttlebug was used to create the backdrop for the center stamped image. After the cardstock was run through the Cuttlebug it was then gently swiped with the Stampin' Up! Craft White Ink Pad. The Stampin' Up! ticket corner punch was used on the green top layer of the card and again on the middle stamped layer. Rather than putting brads in the corners of the middle stamped layer I just punched little holes with the paper piercer. (Make sure to click on the photo for a close-up look of the card).
The circle on the green top layer was cut with the use of the Coluzzle Circle Template. A small piece of cardstock was embossed with the little Cuttlebug Wintery House image that was also cut out with a Coluzzle Circle Template and to add a little more dimension it was popped up with a Close To My Heart 3D Foam Square.

Now take that same stamp and tear off a little piece of sticky note paper and cover of the words - "Joy to the World". With the stamp upside down ink up just the kids on the sleigh - It gives you a silhouette of just the kids. How do you like it? The Joy from the same stamp was stamped on a separate piece of paper cut out and mounted on to a punched circle that was then mounted on a piece of red cardstock that was punched out with the Stampin' Up! Designer Label Punch. I added Close To My Heart Edge Anchors on either side of the embellishment. The oval was cut using the Coluzzle Circle Template. The ribbons on the left are tied onto a Close To My Heart Brass Photo Hanger .
The Pine cone Stamp is also from Jacksonbelle Embellishments.
