With November less than a week away, it's time to get serious about making your hand-made greeting cards.  Today I'm using the Stampin' Up! Joy of Christmas Suite to create a card with plenty of Christmas spirit.  The Suite includes both the Joy of Noel Stamp set and Dies as well as the Charismas Classics Stamp Set and Dies.   You'll also want to check out both Designer Series Paper packs included in this suite as well as the coordinating ribbons and accessories.  I decided to create my card using only the stamps and dies from this extensive suite.  My color theme is Mossy Meadow, Basic White, Cherry Cobbler and Gold Glimmer Paper.  I stamped images from both stamp sets in Mossy Meadow ink.  The berries are stamped in Cherry Cobbler Ink.  Then I used both the Christmas Classic Dies and the Joy of Noel Dies to die cut several elements to add to the card.  I included a die cut of Gold Glimmer Paper as the center focal point under the sentiment from Christmas Classics Stamp Set.  This gold glimmer paper is adhesive-backed, which made it so easy to adhere to the card front without worrying about glue leaking onto the front of the glimmer papers around the delicate cutouts. This is from the Silver & Gold 12" X 12" Adhesive-Backed Glimmer Paper Pack.  The Joy of Noel Dies and the Christmas Classic Dies give you so many elements to use as part of a card design, you'll have a great time learning which are your favorites.  You'll enjoy creating thoughtful cards with a variety of greetings, textures and festive elements.

    The basecard for this card is Mossy Meadow Cardstock.  Then I added another layer of Mossy Meadow dry embossed using the Snowflake Sky 3D embossing folder.  Next I used one of the elements from the Christmas Classic Dies to die cut a Gold Glimmer Paper layer to use in the center of my card.  I used one of the Gold Glimmer papers from the Silver & Gold 12" X 12" Adhesive-Backed Glimmer Paper Pack.  I layers some of the Basic White stamped images behinds it and others on top of the Gold Glimmer Paper layer.

    Next, I selected images from the Joy of Noel and Christmas Classic Stamp Sets and Stamped the in Mossy Meadow Ink on Basic White Paper.  I also stamped  several berries in Cherry Cobbler Ink.  I used the dies in the Joy of Noel Dies and Christmas classic Dies to die cut these elements.  I also die cut Mossy Meadow pine leaves to insert into the elements used on the card.

    To finish my card, I used one of the dies from the Christmas Classics Dies to die cut a sentiment element in Mossy Meadow Cardstock.  I used the Peace on Earth sentiment from the Christmas Classic Stamp Set and stamped it in Versamark Ink.  While the ink was still wet, I covered it with White Embossing Powder and set it with my Heat tool.  Then I added three Adhesive Backed Sequins from the Neutrals Adhesive Backed Sequins Pack to complete my card.
