Joy to the World PML Christmas Card

I woke up this morning doing a little mental math. There's about 60 days before I need a LOT of Christmas cards. I need to make two or three every day. So I pulled out my PML cards that Close To My Heart made for 6" x 4" or 4" x 3" pockets for scrapbooking. One of the sets had three of each card, so I pulled out one that said "Joy to the World" for this card because I thought it would go fairly well with a sketch from Christmas Card Throwdown that I wanted to use.



I scissor distressed the edges of the PML card so that it would contrast with the Kraft background.  To add a little more sparkle, I traced over the letters of JOY with a Sakura Gelly Roll pen:


The best thing about this card was how easy and quick it was to make three cards! I hope your holiday card-making is much more on track than mine!  Thank you for visiting!

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
613 Avenue Create #201 - anything goes/ option distress it 
A Gem of a Challenge #202 - use Kraft cardstock
Christmas Card Throwdown - September-Sketch
