JOY Christmas Card


 Hello, friends! It’s Nancy back to share a fun new JOY Christmas Card project!

 I always think of Christmas as a season of JOY!
So when I saw this fun file in the shop, I knew I had to make a card with it.
There are two options for buying this card; on it’s own or part of a kit.

Here are the links:

Here’s my card:

Isn’t that a cute and creative card?

I think the pieces would be fantastic all cut out and reassembled,

but I didn’t have the time for that.

So here’s what I did:

I actually took some screenshots of the process. 

I’ve not done this before but thought I would try it.

Let me know if it helps.

First, I uploaded the clipart I wanted to use. 

The file includes each individual “letter”, along with the word art png.

I uploaded the complete word, and sized it at 5 1/2″ wide.

Next, I added a white rectangle to my canvas.

It uploaded with rounded corners, which I really liked.

I knew that I wanted my finished card to be 5″ x 7″,

so I sized the white rectangle at 5 1/2″ wide.

I sent the white rectangle to the back, and added the word art file on top.

I then resized the word art to 5″ wide.

I then highlighted the whole piece and selected “flatten”.

(Sorry, I don’t have a picture of that.)

Then I selected the “print then cut” option.

I sent the image to my printer, and then added the printed piece to my mat.

Here it is all cut out!

Next, I printed out this fun diagonally striped paper.

It’s part of the Christmas Treats Craft Bundle.

I made a white cardstock card base that measured 5″ x 7″.

I cut the striped paper to fit the front and rounded all the corners.

I inked around the card base and the printed panel, using red ink.

I then added the printed/cut piece to the card base using foam tape.

It’s cute just like that but every Christmas card needs a little sparkle, right?

To finish things off I added pretty red Stickles Glitter Glue to the wreath and the reindeer nose.

I also added Glossy Accents to the reindeer eyes.

It’s such a fun and festive card…and so much fun to put together!

I hope you give it a try!
