# Black Eyed Susan Strip # Holly Corner

Joy to the World Card

Greetings Cheery Lynn friends, I bet you're as busy as I am decorating, creating, baking and all those fun things that go along with this wonderful time of the year.   However, no matter how busy I am, I have to stop and have some me time, and that usually involves creating in my studio!

Today I'm sharing a card with you that is 6 x 6".  To make this card, first cut a rectangle 6 x 12" and score on the 6" line.  Then cut a patterned layer 5 1/2" square and notched the corners. (I used Authentique's Retro Christmas 6 x 6 pad).


Now cut a mat from Pierced Stacker 3 (the 2nd largest) and adhere  that in the center of the card. Next cut a wreath and sentiment using the Joy To The World Wreath 3 Die Set and adhere over the Pierced Stacker.  To give the wreath some dimesion and fullness I also used the Wreath Strip 7 Piece Die Set.  I cut the little circles off the foliage pieces and glued just the ends all around the wreath.  I also added some Lindy's Ponderosa Pines mist to the foliage pieces and dried with my heat gun.  That made the pieces curl up so when I glued the ends, the foliage naturally popped up a little bit.  I applied some stickles here and there to resemble holly berries and I think the wreath looks really nice!


Of course every wreath needs flowers and a bow so I tied up some pretty ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon and glued that down to the top of my wreath.  I made a pretty flower for the center from the Black Eyed Susan Strip 5 Piece Die Set and two small roses using the Medium- Rose 7 Piece Die Set.  Then I got out my favorite die, (at least for this month 😉) the  Holly Corner Die  and tucked in some holly around the blooms.  I love how this card came together!
