Have a JOYful Christmas!

Hello!  I haven't made a shaped card in a while so I thought I'd try one for Christmas. Shaped cards are very fun and easy to make.  You can find a tutorial here on how to make one.  I chose a very basic shape - a circle - to mimic the ornament I have as my focal point in my layered card.  The base is made from a stitched circle die, the next is the largest of the heart circles from Spellbinders popped up with  Joy! foam pads, then a circle from silver metallic card stock, and finally my top white on which my Memory Box Cabrini ornament is placed.  I do love my Metals Craft Foil - it just goes so well with Christmas!  Here I used a gold one for the outlines, some red for the berries and the ornament is cut from glitter tape.  I also cut the letters JOY out of the gold foil.  Finally some ribbon and silver floss to top of my ornament.

When I stood up my card, it did roll around until settling on its side.  To fix that, I cut a flat bottom on the inside flap so that it would stand upright yet still be a perfect circle in the front.
