Keeping Christmas Inspiration Hop - Sending Joy for the Holidays

It's time for this month's installment of Keeping Christmas with The Challenge design team!  I let dies do most of the work on this card using a holiday sentiment from Lawn Fawn.

Sending Joy card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Lawn Fawn
I stamped the "sending joy for the holidays" sentiment from the Merry Messages set on a long silver fishtail flag strips.  The strip was layered on to a knit patterned paper panel over a contrasting red circle.  I covered the straight edge of the fishtail flag strip with a pair of teeny, tiny envelopes die cut with rone of the dies from Lawn Fawn's Happy Mail die set.  Each envelope was dressed up with a star-shaped brad that looks a little snowflake-like.  I cut a pair of snowflakes from shimmery white cardstock using a pair of dies from Lil' Inker Designs and tucked each flake underneath one of the envelopes for a festive, seasonal touch.  The patterned paper panel was matted on silver cardstock, then adhered to a red card base.
