12 Cards of Christmas - Card 6

I am actually away on Haemophilia Camp with my family, but hopefully I've set this post to appear at the right time, so you don't miss out on Day 6.... This card uses my favourite set of papers from this year's collection. It's called "Wintergreen", and it has the colours Sage Shadow, Certainly Celery, Soft Sky and Always Artichoke....no wonder I love it, all those divine blues and greens!
I don't CASE very often, but I saw these cards on Splitcoast and just had to make my own version. It's such a quick and easy design, and such a clever way to use the "Enjoy Every Moment" set. I've inked up just the 'joy' bit using an Always Artichoke marker. The swirl (from Baroque Motifs) has been stamped in Soft Sky ink, and then I've added a couple of small flowers (from 'Season of Joy' in Certainly Celery. The flower for the centre of the 'o' has been stamped in Certainly Celery and punched out with the 3/4" circle, and popped up on a Dimensional. I sponged the edges of the Whisper White panel with Soft Sky ink. I also sanded the edges of the Wintergreen paper with a sanding block, to reveal a white edge.

Stamps: Enjoy Every Moment, Baroque Motifs, Season of Joy
Ink: Soft Sky, Certainly Celery
Cardstock: Sage Shadow, Always Artichoke, Whisper White
Other: Wintergreen DS paper, 3/4" circle punch, Always Artichoke marker, Dimensionals, sanding blocks, sponge dauber
