Christmas "JOY" Wall Hanging

Hello!  Sorry to have been so long in posting!  I've been out of town and returned home coming down with "something" so haven't been stamping!  Hope the meds kick in soon because there's a lot to be done before Christmas!

I did manage to finish my JOY wall hanging that I had almost finished before I left town.  I enjoyed the FALL wall hanging (here) so much that I wanted to do one for the Christmas holiday season also, so here it is.
Of course, my photography and lighting don't do it justice; the snowflakes are die cut from the Silver Glimmer Paper Cardstock (just stunningly sparkley!!) with the Big Shot and the #120901 Northern Frost Decorative Strip Die.  The ribbon is the 1-1/4" Riding Hood Red Striped Ribbon which was available previously on the Online Clearance Rack (I just checked and it's not there any longer... those are some great sale prices and some things sell out quickly!)  

I used the Scallop Square Clear Die to cut Riding Hood Red cardstock for each letter.  The background Designer Series Paper is Letters to Santa, which has a color scheme of Riding Hood Red, Early Espresso, Old Olive and Marina Mist; this is the Ornament Print.  This is a fun DSP, having mostly bold images on one side and lovely small plaids on the other!  Love it!  The letter "J" is die cut with the Serif Essentials Die set (#113464) from both Riding Hood Red and Early Espresso and layered to give depth; this is attached to a Scallop Circle of Old Olive embossed with the Houndstooth Embossing Folder and the Big Shot.
For the "O", I made a rosette (also called a lolly) using my SU Simply Scored tool and the Riding Hood Red pattern from the package and centered it with a super-sparkley snowflake of Silver Glitter Cardstock.  This was adhered to a scallop circle of Marina Mist (cut with the Scallop Circle Die) that is edged with Champagne Mist Glass Glitter (beautiful stuff, it is!)  The large print background is in Early Espresso and again one of the DSP patterns.
The "Y" is much like the "J" square but I used the Snow Burst Embossing Folder (#124096) from the Holiday Mini Catalog to texturize the Scallop Circle base.  The "stamps" pattern paper from the DSP is used as the background on the Scallop Scquare  Each letter has one of the sparkly Silver Glimmer Paper snowflakes on it and each square has a small Early Espresso Quilted Satin Ribbon bow at the bottom.

Thank you for visiting me today!  I hope you enjoyed the project.  I always love to hear from you, so if you willl take the time to say hello and leave a comment, it means a lot!

Have a great day!
