Christmas Joy

Christmas Joy features Stampin' Up's! gorgeous Purely Pomegranate silk ribbon that just happens to be on sale now through December 15. When you purchase one roll of silk ribbon for $9.95 you receive a second roll FREE. Yes, FREE. The ribbon is also offered in Chocolate Chip. Your free ribbon can be the same color or you can choose one of each color.

You know, both Pomegranate and Chocolate Chip are great accent colors for those Valentine's Day cards too. Think ahead stampers. Stock up now!

For the card shown here, I paired Purely Pomegranate with Always Artichoke. The card base is 5 x 5 square Always Artichoke cardstock layered with Purely Pomegranate, Whisper White and Prints Designer Series Paper in Artichoke. The "Joy" is stamped in Always Artichoke and is from the Illuminations stamp set which is actually part of Stampin' Up's! Tapestry collection. This set is a great investment. It is a versatile set of four stamps with an image that is appropriate to nearly every occasion. In addition to the Joy stamp, the set includes Cherish, Hope & Thanks. The silk ribbon really goes with the elegant look of this stamped image. It reminds me of a Victorian Christmas look. There is a bit of sparkle touched at the center of each loopy, which is not easy to see in this picture, and I finished off the card with two gold brads to give the layout a sense of balance.

Thanks for looking. Hope you enjoy and Happy Stampin'! EdieB
