Joy with Year of Cheer

Today’s card is a metallic, wintry card featuring items from the Year of Cheer Suite!

I don’t think a picture will ever do the metallic elements on this card justice. The products in the Year of Cheer Suite are fabulous! And I love that the Cheers to the Year stamp set covers multiple celebratory occasions.

For the ribbon element, I cut a piece about 6″ long and adhered it to the card by placing a little Fast Fuse adhesive on the back of the card in the center of the top and the center of the bottom and wrapped the ribbon ends around to the back to stick into the Fast Fuse. Then, I created a “bunny ears” bow and adhered it to the front of the card using Mini Glue Dots. It’s a trick to make you think the ribbon is all one piece instead of two!

I usually like to add a little bling to my cards and, even though this card has a lot of metallic elements, I felt the sentiment needed a little something. So I stuck a Metallic Enamel Shape in the center of the ‘O’ in Joy.

QUICK TIP: To adhere the Foil Snowflake, I criss-crossed some Fast Fuse adhesive in the center of the snowflake, because it was going to be hidden by the sentiment!

  1. As soon as I saw this I said ” Ooh that’s pretty”. I love the Year of Cheer suite and pretty much every single thing I’ve seen made using it. I love sparkle, not over the top blinged out, but classic touches of gold and silver. This is gorgeous.
