Joy to the World

First I made my Christmas bauble by die cutting a circle of metallic red card and then embossing it - this is cool because you get to place the circle to make best use of the embossing. Then I used the end of a tag die to cut the bauble top in gold metallic.  I decorated the bauble with a small stamped poinsettia and die cut leaves and the word JOY.  I decided to use this smooched gold reinker background on a white and finally stamped the sentiment.  Thanks for taking a peek
