Another red card using one of my favourite dies to make this CAS card for some of my favourite challenges.

I trimmed a piece of white hammer card so it was slightly smaller than the front of the card and die cut 'JOY' from the centre.  I rounded the corners before attaching the panel to the front of the card.  I die cut 'JOY' from three small snippets of red mirri card and inlaid them in to the card  I die cut the fancy 'JOY' from dark red textured card and attached it over the top.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 4" white hammer card blank
     Creative Expressions 'Festive Collection - Joy' die
     Woodware regular corner rounder punch
     Snippets of red mirri, dark red textured and white hammer card

I am entering the following challenges:
     AAA Cards - Up to One Third     
     CAS Christmas - Joy
     Christmas Kickstart Challenge - Red
     Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes With Dies - February Challenge
     Moving Along With The Times - Sentiment/Quote as Focus
     Pixie's Snippets Playground - Challenge 371

Hi Kath - wow - you really did a great job with this wonderful die set. It's so very elegant - and a great idea to inlay the solid JOY. Works a treat - need to get my set and for a play I think - thanks for the inspiration.

Ooh, I love the double die cut JOY, Kath! The red on red is stunning with the stamped swirls behind it and the hammered texture of the white! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at CAS Christmas!
