This is another card I did for Falliday Fest at The theme was "Blue Christmas." I used Hero Arts' "Joy to the World" stamp set for the triangles, and My Favorite Things' "Joyous Christmas Sentiments" for the greeting.

I started by stamping my background. I traced a 4" circle onto a piece of 140 lb. watercolor paper. Using a hexagon template I got online & my MISTI, I stamped the triangle 6 times around the circle in Versamark. Then I heat embossed those with Ranger Silver embossing powder. I inked the circle with Faded Jeans Distress ink (in the center), and going out to Blueprint Sketch, & Chipped Sapphire around the edge. I used a water brush to "paint" some of the smaller triangles with plain water, and blotted up the water/ink to bleach the areas, just for some added interest.

For the greeting, I stamped the "Joy" onto another scrap of watercolor paper, and heat embossed it. I die cut that with a Spellbinders "Standard Circles LG" die, and inked it with Faded Jeans. I went around the edges with Blueprint Sketch, just to help tie it in with the background. I then popped it up over the center of my background. I die cut a silver shimmer paper mat with a "Nesting Scallop" die from Lifestyle Crafts, and adhered my inked circle to that. I die cut another scalloped circle, scored 1/2" from one edge, and adhered the top to the back of my card front to create the card base.
