It's been such a busy time of year but I wanted to get a chance to post this card before the holiday season was over.
I created a very simple design and wanted to use as many of the snowflakes from the First Snow set by Penny Black as I could with this sentiment.

I began by die cutting the Jumbo JOY letters also from Penny Black, onto some scrap paper to use as a mask.  I applied some repositionable adhesive to the back of the letters and stuck them down.
Next, I placed the piece into my Misti and stamped the snowflakes all over the masked area.
When I was happy with the coverage, I rubbed over the center area with some Peacock Feathers DOX ink, then removed the masks.
To help add more interest, I added some blue Nuvo drops to the center of the snowflakes.

I mounted the finished front onto a piece of blue cardstock, then onto a heavy white card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look.

A stunning card Karen. Initially I thought the word JOY was a die cut. That is fabulous masking.

I love the variation of these snowflakes around the masked JOY! Another beautiful holiday card, my friend!
