Tis the Season Joy Ornament Card-Christmas Card Ideas Week 8

I'm a couple days late with this but Halloween put a crimp in my activities on Monday.  But, without delay, here is this week's Christmas Card Idea: the Joy Ornament card from the Cricut Creative Memories Tis the Season cartridge (now available HERE for purchase).
Here is my quick and simple card recipe:

1) Fold piece of 4-1/4" x 11" kraft cardstock in half to form card.
2) Cut striped paper at 4" x 5-1/4" and adhere to front of card.  Adhere piece of brown cardstock cut at 3-3/4"x5" to striped paper.  Center and adhere ornament patterned paper cut at 3-5/8"x4-7/8" onto brown cardstock.
3) Cut "Joy Ornament" phrase word art (all layers) at 4" using brown cardstock and glitter paper in red, cream and green and adhere layers together.  Adhere to front of card.  Using glue dot, attach red and white bow to top of ornament.
4) Adhere piece of 4" x 5-1/4" cream cardstock to inside of card.  Stamp "Merry Christmas" to inside of card.

Supplies: Cricut Creative Memories Tis the Season cartridge; Brown, kraft and cream cardstock; patterned paper by Echo Park; red, cream and green glitter paper by DCWV, red and white ribbon by Stampin Up!, stamp sentiment from My Creative Time's Gift Card Sentiment Set; red ink.
Now, to announce last week's winner of the FULL SET of My Creative Time's latest stamp set release:

  7. Nice card! Love the paper and ribbon. Ribbon reminds me of the hard peppermint candy that is shaped like an "s" or "z".
