Joy to the World Holiday Card - FUSION

Well, my Christmas bubble was popped and now all I can seem to think about doing is making pretty little glittery, snow-filled, wintry cards!! 

But I suppose, when you have inspiration images like the following one from Fusion, you'd want to make holiday cards, too. 


It's the start of Fusion's new challenge today. You can play long with our sketch OR our inspiration image OR both!

I started out by making a rustic background for the card. Originally, I was going to use gray for the background, to emulate the door, but I just couldn't get the color scheme to work in my head!

Instead, I focused on the brown neutrals and added hints of gray to the background paper and to the focal die cut using my Distress Crayons.

Die cuts used: Winnie & Walter In a Word: Joy Cutaway, Stampin' Up Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Die,
I'm going to link this card up to:
Happy Little Stampers - Anything Goes with Dies

Open Minded Crafting - Christmas/Hannakuh
Tuesday Throwdown - Add Gems or Pearls

We hope to see you over at Fusion! My fellow Design Teamies pulled out all the stops!
