May Your Joys Be Many

I have a Christmas card to share today, I designed the card around the stamped image from "Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps", this image is so simple and beautiful.  Kept the overall design pretty simple too, I just did lots of layering for dimension.

Stamps; Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps (Mary & Baby Jesus, Joys be Many Sentiment)
Inks; StazOn (Jet Black), Distress ink (forest moss)
Paper; Bazzill Cardstock, Daisy D's Patterned paper, Canson Fanboy paper, Georgia Pacific White cardstock.
Other; Stickles (Xmas Red), Prismacolor color pencils, OMS, ribbon, Cricut, Cricut Lite Lacy Labels cartridge

Cut a piece of patterned paper and ink edges with distress ink, mat on green cardstock and ink edges too.  Cut an "Asian" label from the Cricut Lacy Labels cartridge, large size at 4" one regular from white cardstock,  and one blackout from green cardstock, same for the small, size at 2", ink edges with distress ink, stamp the sentiment on the small white label with StazOn, and adhere with pop dots.  Adhere ribbon to card as pictured, adhere labels.  Stamp image of "Mary & Baby Jesus" three times on Canson paper with StazOn ink, color with color pencils and OMS, hand cut one full image, on the second image only cut all the flowers, on the third image only cut the middle flower in the set of three, adhere all with pop dots, you will have a total of three layers on the image.  Make bow and adhere as pictured.  For the final touch add some Stickles on the flower's centers and the holly.
