Happy December First

It's the first of December,  and I want to wish you a Happy Holiday Season - however you celebrate it.

I have made several quick and easy Christmas cards - here is the first:

This is a 4-1/4" square card, made with a folded white card stock base and a 3-3/4" square of glittery patterned paper.

The "JOY ornament" was cut using two Tim Holtz Sizzix dies ... the word oval fits perfectly into his ornament die (among others). Brilliant!  I traced around the outside of the word oval, then quickly hand trimmed it to glue behind the words so they showed up. Some Bakers Twine (Stampin' Up) and foam tape and ... done.

Thanks for stopping by today!
