Joy to the World- A Vintage Easel Christmas Card :-)

Hi Stampers! 

Here is another card that I created this week for the Our Daily Bread DesignsODBDSLC215 Anything Goes Challenge (have to use at least one ODBD stamp set) along with another CCC14 Christmas Challenge card for October.

I hope you will have the time to check out both sites linked above- gorgeous cards from all!

To create this card:

Using Midnight Muse Classic Ink , stamp the Wisemen Ornament onto Very Vanilla cardstock.  Mask the wisemen area and sponge Baked Brown Sugar over the edges, remove the mask and add a bit to the wisemen. 

Cut the circle out using the Big Shot™ with the Circle Collection Framelits™ and cut another circle from Midnight Muse cardstock with a large framelit™ from the Sizzix Circle Collection.  

Mount the wisemen image onto the Midnight Muse circle and add the Spellbinders Flourish die cut (split into two) at the top and bottom to create the ornament.

Wrap the Gold Cord around the top of the die cut and set aside.
Stamp the Joy to the World
Side View of easel 
background stamp onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock using Midnight Muse Classic Ink.

Stamp the retired Christmas Collage background (onto another piece of Very Vanilla cardstock) also using Midnight Muse Classic Ink.

Distress the background panels using a Sponge Dauber with Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink.  Trim the Joy to the World panel and mount onto Midnight Muse cardstock.

Cut the Christmas College panel in half and mount onto Midnight Muse cardstock. 

Create the 5.5” x 5.5” easel card using this tutorial from Very Vanilla cardstock. 

Emboss a 5” square piece of Baked Brown Sugar cardstock using the Big Shot™ with the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and mount onto a piece of Midnight Muse cardstock.

Add the background panels, the crocheted lace trim, scrap piece of Midnight Muse cardstock, 3/8” Midnight Muse Stitched Satin Ribbon (“antique” with Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink), sentiment banner panel and ornament to the card front. 

Mount the entire panel onto a 5.5” x 5.5” Very Vanilla card front.

Stamp the Joy and sentiment image onto Very Vanilla cardstock, distress with Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink and mount onto Midnight Muse cardstock.

Add the panel onto a piece of Midnight Muse cardstock (embossed with the Lacy Brocade EF) and add a few highlights with the White Gel Pen.

Add the Joy panel to the lower part of the easel card and finish off the card with Pearls and a Rhinestone for the star :-)
