Hello, friends! I’m so happy to be joining in for this wonderful Honey Bee Stamps 12 Days of Christmas event! 

I love color and all things bright and cheery, so my two cards today are going to be filled with all of that! 

Up first is this festive ‘JOY’ card featuring the Joy Honey Cuts and Joy Stamp Set. I love creating backgrounds with die-cuts and all of the larger word Honey Cuts that Honey Bee Stamps offers make it so easy to create them. I chose my color combo and just went to town die-cutting ‘JOY’ numerous times. 

I attached them all to my card front, trimmed off the edges and then moved on to finishing my sentiment. I stamped ‘TO THE WORLD’ onto a strip of white and popped it up with a bit of dimensional foam.

I felt it needed just a little something extra, so I added a flower and leaves using the Country Christmas Wreath Stamp set and Honey Cuts.

Keeping it very sweet and simple for card #2. This features the fun No Peeking Honey Cuts and Stamp set. Again, I chose my color combination and just die-cut my pieces. I love all of the borders that this set has to offer, but chose the polka dot border to work with for this card. After attaching them to the front of my card, I added the sweet bow image. 

To complete this card I simply stamped Merry Christmas using theCountry Christmas Wreath Stamp set
