Dreamweaver Christmas Challenge

I am using the Joy stencil from Dreamweavers for this card.  I first used the black matte paste to emboss the image onto white card stock.  Then after that was dry, I applied the crackle paste over the black paste.  Once the paste dried and cracked, I place the clean stencil once again onto the pasted Joy and sponged the letters with Distress Ink.  The colors that I used were Barn Door, Gathered Twigs and Peeled Paint.  The background paper was a cream color, but I wanted more of a green and red coloring.  I sponged the paper with Peeled Paint and I had my color scheme that I was looking for.  I tied a piece of red ribbon from May Arts and glued it over the ornament.  Then I cut out the Pine Bough using a die from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.  Check out more Holiday cards from the Design Team...
