Washi Joy

Hey everyone!  Sorry I've not been sharing much this month.  My mojo has gone on vacation without me it seems.  Somewhere warmer and no snow, no doubt.  Yet again, we are getting snow today.  School was cancelled so we are all snug and warm in the house.  At least it's not so freezing cold today.  :-). I snuck upstairs for a bit and attempted to finish off a couple of cards I'd been working on. Success!  They are both done!  Now I can share.  :-). Here's the first card...

Yes, it's a Christmas card.  I'm still working on getting my Christmas cards ready before December.  This one is NOT a one layer, if you can believe it!  I took my beige card base and adhered some green and gold glitter tape and some new patterned Christmas washi tape (all by Tapeworks). Then I die cut two stars.  One from a dark yellow cardstock and the other from some red striped paper I had lying around.  I sponged some soft suede (SU!) on both around the edges.  I covered the yellow star more to make it darker.  I then die cut the word joy from some dark green cardstock.  I added some Wink of Stella to the word joy and the golden star.  Lastly, I adhered the die cuts (all cut with The Slice) down, raising the striped star with some foam dots.

I'd like to link up to the following challenges:

Merry Monday Christmas Challenge - make a card with a star.
Jingle Belles - use washi tape
Christmas Card Challenges - anything goes
ABC Christmas Challenge - D is for dies cuts.
Addicted to Stamps and More - Holiday

I'll be back in a little bit to share another card.  Thanks for stopping by!  :-)
