Joy to the World

Welcome back OCS Fans to another crazy Tuesday.  For today’s card, I have made my first Christmas card of the year.  Christmas is only about five months away.  Today’s card is using two High Hopes Stamps; a background stamp called Winter Wonderland and Glowing Spirit Snowy.

The Star Design paper as well as the sentiment have been foiled using  a sheet of Holographic Reactive foil.  Polar White Flower Soft was added to the trees and the trim on Snowy’s hat.
