Last of this year's Christmas cards

My good friend, Luanne, gave me a great idea on the use of a stencil of the ornament punch from Stampin Up. Therefore, I created this card for our stampin' group. (hoping they are too busy to look here before I get them mailed out). lol

I used the stencil and stamped the words Joy and Noel inside first, embossed that part and the ornament top with gold EP, then sponged the color on them using the stencil. I punched out the MS branches and layered them to look like a pine branch and added glittery stickles to them too.
Card deets: CS: glorious green, whisper white, and close to cocoa; DP: BG Wassail; Tools/Embellishments: glittery white stickles, gold EP, MS branch and doily edger punches, glue, pop dots. Inks: Mellow moss, glorious green, real red and rose red

Hoping they like them. They are pretty quick and easy. I seem to be getting closer to being done with my Christmas "to do" list. Hope you are all getting your list completed too.

Happy Stampin N Scrappin!
