Christmas Barn Joy Fold Card

I had fun making this Joy Fold card featuring the Stampin' Up! Christmas Barn Bundle.  I even added a little snow on the roof and ground using the Snowfall Accent Puff Paint!  It has a nostalgic feel I think in Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler!

Isn't this fun!  The Whimsical Woodland Embossing Folder added the perfect touch of detail to the background.  I've been having so much fun playing with this bundle - it's the bundle featured in this months Your Creativity Awaits Kit!  You can register for this kit and receive the stamp set (and add on the dies) plus 8 Make and Take projects!  More information below on my monthly card kits. Last day to register is October 9th
