Make My Monday - Week 24 - on a roll.............!

Hi everyone - well I think I'm on a roll at the moment...... isn't it strange that you can go for ages without much inspiration and then all of a sudden it hits you!!!  lol  So, I thought I'd better strike whilst the iron's hot.............  Another two cards for the Make My Monday challenge for a CAS card with the emphasis on the sentiment.

For the first one I have used a Memory Box die (think I'm addicted to these!!!) where it die cuts just the holes/bubbles in the word Joy and leaves the actual card intact rather than die cutting the word out.  I have backed it with red glitter card and then white pearl and put on a black DL card with some black and red spotty ribbon.  The edge has been punched with a Martha Steward edge punch. I can hear you all saying there should be a lot of white space ..... but thought a lot of black space would suffice!!!  lol

The second one is using the Stampin Up Something for Christmas stamp.  I stamped it using a Kaleidacolor Royal Satin inkpad and clear embossed it.  I then used  my Labels 20 to die cut it and mount onto red card.  The addition of some red ribbon onto a white DL card is all that was needed.

Thanks for stopping by.
