Frosty Sparkling Joy

More new release goodies coming at you today from JustRite!  We've got this beautiful new set called Small Oval Christmas Tidings....a big name for a gorgeous big set of stamps!

I used this lovely set full of layering goodness to create this joy-filled card:

The layers on this card were created by starting with a standard A2 base of white cardstock (5&1/2" by 4&1/4") then adding a mat of the swiss dot paper (5&1/4" by 4"). 

The center panel is a 3" by 4&1/4" piece of white cardstock.  I stamped the Retro Sparkle Cling Background stamp from JustRite, using Versamark Ink, then embossed with clear embossing powder.  Next I went over the background with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  I added a few drops of water and also roughed up the edges of the piece to give it a more distressed look.  

To add some sparkle on the white dots/stars, I used Stardust Stickles.  I set it aside to dry, then started on the rest of the layers. 

I cut a 2&7/8" circle out of white cardstock, using the Just Imagine Kreaxions Circle Cutter, and 3&1/8" gray cardstock mat. The snowflake was stamped using Tumbled Glass and then embossed in clear.  The edges of the circle were brushed with ink, then glued to the gray circle mat.  The center white/gray mat ovals were cut out using the JustRite Joy Oval Frames, and stamped using the same method.  The word "Joy" was cut out using this same die set, these ovals are foam taped to the center of the snowflake, on the large circle, then sparkled up using rhinestones and enamel dots. 

Before the circle is attached to the card, there is another layer created using the Damask Flourish One die, cut twice and glued together, and a center band of a 1" by 4" strip of striped paper matted on a 1&1/4" by 4" strip of gray cardstock.  Here are all the pieces before the card was completely assembled:

After assembly I added a few more enamel dots to complete the card.
