Encircled in Warmth – Joyful Season

Welcome back!  How about an unconventional colored Holiday card?

Sketch: Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge (#374), Colors: Sunday Stamps (#267), Theme: Happy Little Stampers October (Christmas) and Occasion: Watercooler Wednesday (#326).

Here is the result:



  • Circle Element: (1⅝”) Basic White cardstock scrap.  The sentiment, Joyful Season, from the Encircled in Warmth stamp set was colored with Stampin’ Write Markers: Real Red, Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry.  Using the Huff Method (adding moisture from your breath), the image was stamped on to the cardstock. The image was die-cut with one of the Circle dies from the Layering Circles Dies set.
  • Circle Accent Mat: (1⅞”) Real Red cardstock scrap die-cut with the next sized up Circle die from the same set of dies.
  • Cross Strips: Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight patterned papers from the retired 2020/2021 Bright’s Family Designer Series Paper pack.   Bermuda Bay (3” x 1¼”) and Daffodil Delight (3” x 2⅞”).
  • Accent Panel: (2¾” x 3¾”) Bermuda Bay cardstock dry-embossed with the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Background Panel: (4” x 5¼”) Real Red and Basic White striped pattern paper from the retired Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper pack.
  • All of the elements were arranged and adhered to a Bermuda Bay card base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) to match the sketch.  Both Holiday and Basic Rhinestone Jewels were added for a little extra bling.

Always interesting to see what happens when you play with colors, a sketch and a theme…A fun bright Holiday card for someone that is a little unconventional…Ho!, Ho!, Ho!
