Radiant Joy | by Tracey McNeely

Hi there are welcome back to another inspiration post at Birch Press Design. I hope you enjoyed the Blog Blitz last week where you were able to have a closer look at the new holiday release! Today I have a quick video tutorial for you to share how I made this pretty ornament card using the newly released Radiant Ornament Layer A, Radiant Ornament Layer B and Radiant Ornament Layer C.
I used non traditional Christmas colours for my ornament mainly because these colours look so good together but also because it is still summer and I am not quite ready to break out the reds and greens just yet.
I started off by cutting one of each of the layers in pink, green and blue, then I cut the ornament hook in silver sparkle paper and the Big Joy Sugar Script in white and backgrounds in grey and vellum (more on that later).
In the following video I will show you how I put my ornament together and hung it on the card base!

I cut the cloud shape for the Big Joy Sugar Script sentiment in both grey and vellum in the beginning because I wasn’t sure which I was going to use for the final card. In the end the vellum made the overall design a bit brighter so that is the one I chose for the final cut.
The addition of the tiny foam pieces behind the ornament gave the card some added dimension and makes the details of the die stand out more.
Thank you for joining me and I hope that you enjoyed today’s post showing you how you can quickly and easily create a clean and simple card using any of the mandala dies. Have a fabulous weekend.
