11/2 Stampin' Up! Joyous Celebrations and Flourish Designer Frames with silver Glimmer Paper ~ 25 Days of Christmas Day 10

Happy Early Friday Morning!

Today's Christmas project share is a Joy card.  I'm using the Flourish Designer Frames again on this card.  Both the cards yesterday and today are reward cards for members of my group who reached a certain sales level in September.  They will receive two packages of the Designer Frames, and the completed cards to give them ideas for upcoming projects.

I really do love my team of demonstrators and feel very lucky to have them AND the best customers around!  To all of you, I say thank you! :)

Send me an email or give me a call if you want to find out about the best deal in the book!  (with no further obligation or pressure).  Or you can check out my post here to see the special.

So what do you think of my funky layers on this card?

This was a fairly easy card to put together, but I love the fun layers.

Here is a message about embossing from yesterdays post.   It still applies!  :) So when you emboss, you typically want to use an embossing buddy to remove any imperfections from the card stock.  Then you stamp with a sticky ink like versamark or craft ink.  For this sample I used versamark.  Then, you pour the powder on..  Here's the BIG IMPORTANT TIP!!  Have a paintbrush handy and brush off any unwanted flecks of embossing power BEFORE you heat for a flawless embossing job!  

So some measurements:
Base Layer: Midnight Muse 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded in half at 4 1/4"
Layer 2: Whisper White 5 1/8" x 3 5/8"
Layer 3: Midnight Muse 5 x 3 3/4"
Layer 4: Glimmer paper, punched with the decorative Label punch 120907
Layer 5: Flourish Designer Frame, attached with two mini brads
Layer 6: 1/8" strip whisper white
Layer 7: double strip of white bakers twine, tied in a bow around the frame
Layer 8: Large oval, midnight muse with the word Joy, heat embossed with silver embossing powder.
