Caryn's Notes: Hello there. I'm here to share more Christmas JOY with a card featuring some of my favorite Taylored Expressions products. I am in love with the Color Block Cutting Plate and have seen so many fabulous cards using it that I thought I'd try one of my own.
Caryn's Notes: Today I've paired the plate with the very fun and frolicky Deck The Halls stamp set - I adore the little penguins and cute critters in this set. I started with a Kraft card base measuring 4 1/4" by 5 1/2" and cut a white frame using the Color Block Cutting Plate.
Caryn's Notes: I cut it a second time from aqua-colored cardstock and put the frame aside for another project. Three of the boxes have a snow drift cut from white card stock using the Build a Scene - Rolling Hills dies.
Caryn's Notes: For another of the blocks, I die cut the word "JOY" using the Tall & Skinny Alphabet set and used the negative placed over the aqua cardstock for some visual variance. The final box contains a shining star which was stamped in black and then stamped a second time on white cardstock and paper-pieced. I stamped and colored the two penguin images from Deck the Halls using Copics and then cut them out before adhering them in place on the blocks of my card front. I finished off by adding gloss and a bit of dust glitter glue for a shimmering snow effect.
Thanks so much, Caryn, for being such an incredible talent and for being such a wonderful person. Good luck on all your new life adventures! You can see more of Caryn's work on her blog, Glitter Me Silly.
