Altenew Card plus matching envelope

 Hi all and welcome to another week of the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

Christmas is just around the corner! I try every year to send out Christmas/Holiday cards to friends and family. Wanting to make Christmas cards was one of the reason I started making cards over 20 years ago. So today I have made a fun Christmas/Holiday card for this week's challenge. I was heavily inspired by Laura Bassen when I chose these colors. They are not so traditional but still has a holiday feel.
I made this card with an A2 size card base made from smooth white cardstock. I then cut a panel using a stitched rectangle die out of cream colored cardstock. I then pulled out my scraps of cardstock and cut strips of red, pink, orange, yellow and green. I used tape runner to adhere them to a scrap piece of cardstock and then used a circle die to cut out a colorful background for my sentiment. My sentiment JOY was die cut using Altenew's big alpha dies out of white cardstock. I popped the letters up in the center of the circle and added die cut snowflakes around the card. The sub-sentiment was embossed in white on a black strip of cardstock. I have a red envelope to match my card.
I hope you enjoyed the card I made today and if you are interested in any of the products I used, they are listed and linked below for your convenience. All supplies can be found at the Simon Says Stamp store.
