So here we are in the limbo between Christmas and New Year’s. I don’t know about you , but this is always an odd feeling week to me. All the excitement of Christmas is over. There will be more celebrating in a few days, but what to do until then? I fill much of my time making cards, of course. I used the Cheers to the Year stamp set and some wintery blues to make today’s card. It’s my wish for you to continue feeling the joy of Christmas all the way into the New Year.  


Here’s what I made:

Stampin' Up! Cheers to the Years handmade joy circle card by Candy Ford of Stamp Candy


Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Whisper White Thick card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Island Indigo CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS (thick or regular) cut to 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 3/4″

Stamped with the Cheers to the Year stamp set:

  • circle images in Versamark ink onto three scraps of CS, one Island Indigo, one Bermuda Bay, and one Pool Party, then heat embossed in white
  • sentiment in Island Indigo ink onto the Whisper White CS strip

Die cut using the Layering Circles Framelits:

  • the three embossed circles
  • the ends of the sentiment strip

Assembled the card:

  • Island Indigo CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • Whisper White CS layer glued onto the Island Indigo CS layer
  • three blue circles glued onto the Whisper White CS layer
  • sentiment strip adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals
