JOY

Graciellie is running a sale on her digis this week so I bought the Cheery Christmas set.
I've enjoyed seeing how several different designers used this pretty wreath of late, and I wanted to give it a whirl. I decided to create a long card and use the wreath for the "o" in "JOY!"
After coloring it with Touch Five markers, I cut it out and popped it up on my embossed card front. I finished off the inside by creating a pocket  for money and adding one of the sentiments from the same digital set as the wreath.
Supplies and Tools:
Cheery Christmas (Graciellie), Touch Five Markers, White Gel Pen, Liquid Pearls, Ribbon, Christmas Quilt Embossing Folder (Couture Creations), Washi Tape, Circle Punch, Nouveau Alphabet Dies (Sizzix)
