Joy To D World Part II

It is weirld to make christmas card at this month. Well, i have to make 200 cards (as i mentioned before), so i started to explore more cards using same papers. Well, i have very very very limited christmas paper and i really don't know where can i get more papers for christmas. I hope i could explore how to make pattern of Christmas using the stamps i have. Hm,... will try that on tuesday night.

I was busy with church activities today. Church service, small group, lunch together with brother and sisters... and i have very limited time tonight to make cards. However, i manage to make 5 simple Christmas cards tonight. Ops, time to talk about my card.

Ha, obviously the papers used very "familiar" in my blog right? Ha,.. these are the papers for Christmas that i have. I used only 2 type of papers in this card: American Crafts - Christmas pipers Piping and KI Memories 1966 Joyful All Mine. Yap, i sew them and ... stamp with the word JOY from Su Love & Joy and add on white emboss powder - and emboss it. Hee Hee. Add on ribbon and bingo! However, i find this layout a little bit - too traditional :) Hm... should explore more.

This looks simple, but it takes time for me to figure out how to make it. First i stamp a Christmas tree on a piece of red paper and emboss it. The Christmas stamp is from Judi Kins - GK2651. I think it is from Taiwan. After sew it with a small piece of KI Memories 1966 Joyful All Mine, i add on ribbon and a Tibetan silver decoration to enhance the design.

Accidentally saw another small piece of paper from around the block and decided to use it to make a 5 mins card. Hm.. the outcome is just ok :)

I will be busy with work these few days. I hope i have time for this hobby :) I really enjoy making cards.
