Joy

I made this card for the Less is More 'Colours of Your Country's Flag' challenge.  I'm also entering Crafting with Dragonflies 'Punches and/or Dies' challenge, Dies R Us Challenge 'Layers' and Die Cut Divas 'Christmas in July'.  All the card is from my snippets drawer so I'm also heading off to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.


Card blank: 6" x 4" white hammer
Die: Creative Expressions 'Festive Collection - Joy'
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Snippets: Red and blue pearlescent, white hammer

I trimmed the red card and attached it to the card blank leaving a small border around the edge.  The white hammer card was trimmed slightly smaller and I die cut JOY from the centre.  This panel was then attached to the card.  I die cut JOY from blue card and inlaid the letters and the white centre of the O.  I then die cut the fancy JOY from red card and attached it with Stick and Stay glue.
