Church Christmas Project 2016 Day 2 - Joy to the World


For more information about my annual Church Christmas Card project, click here.

Recognize this? That's because I made the 'prototype' last year.




I started by cutting the JOY out of a white 4.25x5.5 panel. I then cut the pierced rectangle (with the letters out), so that the J and Y could over hang. I cut strips of black so that I could cut only Os, to frame baby Jesus.

Once I cut all the white 'JOY's out of the panels, I didn't want to throw them away, so I sponged all the Js and Ys with Fossilized Amber and then sprayed them with Sparkle mist. (I misted baby Jesus, too).

For sponging, I cut another JOY out of a panel and laid the J and Y into it - that way I wasn't trying to hold the letter and sponge at the same time.


I used:
Dee's Distinctively JOY die
MFT Pierced Rectangle
PTI Stained Glass
Fossilized Amber distress ink
Sparkle Mist
