I start singing the old, familiar Christmas carol as I see the theme of Joy to the World for Day 27 of the #30DayChristmasCardMaking Challenge . Stampin’ Up! have several stamp sets that fit in with this sentiment but we needed to put a spin on the theme.
The Beautiful World bundle had the globes that suited this world-themed challenge. As I think about Christmas and what it means, it’s about families and coming home and no matter where you are in the world or how you celebrate Christmas, every family enjoys this special time of getting together.
I wanted to depict this in my card. The Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper has a sheet which has several sentiments and words in different languages centred around Christmas. Now, I don’t know what they mean but I am certain they are to do with Christmas and it brings joy to someone, somewhere in the world. The Paper Trimmer came in very handy for the process of cutting up all the sentiments.
I used the Stitched Triangles to add a contrast for the globe and main sentiment to stand out on, cutting one in half to create more interest in the background.
I hope this inspires you to look at your Designer Series Paper in another way by chopping it – into tiny bits – and getting creative with it. Trimming the Town DSP and ‘Tis the Season DSP are on sale at 15% off. See the full range of papers on sale here.
