Season of Joy all year!

The Season of Joy set is so cute! I think it will be pretty versatile too. I participated in an online swap with some other demos using this set and I wanted to include a thank you for the swap coordinator and this is what I came up with.

When I was coming up with my composition for this card I originally cut a larger piece of white card stock for the background. When I was done with my stamping, there was too much white space for my liking, so I penciled in a straight line just above the middle flower and cut all around the top flower and the top petal of the middle flower. The last flower on the right was stamped on separate piece of white, cut out and raised up with a stampin' dimensional.

All that cutting was kind of tedious, so when I decided I needed to make another one for my display board I cut a much smaller piece of white card stock to start with and planned my design accordingly. Here is card #2:

This card was much simpler to make, but I still think it's as cute as the first one. For this one I used the Canvas background because there wasn't much room to include a swirl coming out from behind my image like on my first card. I also added some piercing to the corners - this mimics the dotted borders in the image.
