Simple Joy Fold!!!

The other week I said that I was in the mood for making some Joy Fold cards. Well I got as far as cutting the card bases and chopping up some papers and that was it.
This morning I found the bag I had put them in and decided to take a few minutes off from the batch making and put together this quite simple Christmas card.
I have used K & Co papers to cover the card and then I inked a card panel with Antique Linen Distress Ink before overstamping using my favourite Rubber Stampede Christmas text stamp and Taupe ink. Scraped the edges with scissors and inked around again with the Antique Linen.
The poinsettia is stamped and embossed onto Curious Metallics vellum.
I think there are instructions in the resources on Splitcoast Stampers for the Joy Fold card.

Having a pretty restful day today although I am a bit miffed with three of the white wedding cards I have done. For some reason the embossed panel keeps lifting up in places from the card blank. I have tried all sorts of different DS tape. The cream ones are fine even though I have used identical materials to the white ones. My next thing to try will have to be glue as I am no way binning them.

Can't wait for the results show of X Factor tonight. I would like to see Kandy Rain and John & Edward in the sing off.

Hubby cooked a lovely lunch as always and I just feel like curling up on the sofa now but I hadn't better. I'll go up and do some more work.

Thanks for your visit today.
