Grand Printable-Christmas Card "JOY"

How exciting to create with Marion's new Grand Printable kit and creating a "joy" Christmas Card with in love with the brown tones and the Chevron patterns. Don't you just love the little Chevron deer!!!

Started with a card base that measures 4 1/4 x 6
 brown damask print- cut it down a little smaller than card base to give a boarder
cut a banner pennet out of one of the printable journal spots
added a little piece of paper doily
Joy-letters are grunge board pieces sprayed with Espresso color wash
sprayed the banner with Tattered Angels Patina glimmer mist and distressed ink the edges in walnut stain
Die cut out the pine tree and reindeer using Tim Holtz Alterations Dies
-pine tree was cut out of chipboard then ran through a Snowflake Texture fade
painted white with gesso, inked over raised snowflakes, glimmer mist a little patine on and then glittered with Diamond Dust
added some greenery with Prima rose and vintage lace
lastly created a tiny banner with the Chevron pattern added some silver stickles "what an adorable card" (if I do say so myself)....

I hope this helps you to not just look at the printable for only one style of creating but taking them and think outside the box and create a little gem of your own....this Grand printable kit would make a lovely Christmas journal, cards, banner, etc....

happy creating, Peggy Lee
