Wishing You Joy

Still trying to go strong & keep up with the Winnie & Walter WCMD challenges & at the same time make cards for SendASmile4Kids!  However my work week has started so that always gets in the way of my craftiness!!  I managed to squeeze this card out late last night after having dinner with my daughter, son-in-law & two grandchildren.  It was time intensive but really fun!  I used a new die I purchase recently from My Favorite Things called Chicken Wire.  I ran the die cut through my machine 4 times, once with white card stock, then 3 more times with blue, aqua, & green card stock.  I stuck the Chicken Wire frame I cut with white card stock on a piece of Stick It, and proceeded to inlay the colored die cut pieces.  I started in the corner with the blue color, then green, then aqua & kept that order from top to bottom with no set plan.  I absolutely LOVE how it turned out, and have the leftover pieces for yet another project!!   I set the whole panel on the same blue colored card base. Then I stamped the Wishing You Joy sentiment with a Colorbox Blue Pigment Ink & heat embossed it, die cut it out with a banner die, mounted it on another blue banner die, and called it done!  Thanks for stopping by!!
