After posting the last popup card I created using the "Joy" Memory Box Dies, Joan, Joan's Gardens, had an overwhelming number of you order the dies used on that card. Here is the link to that card. I loved working with those dies and thought I would create another popup card for you today. This time I die cut the "Joy" popup on the lower portion of the card then die cut the letters again on sparkly striped paper and attached them over the "Joy" attached to the card.
Here is a list of the products l used from Joan's Gardens: BoBunny "Father Christmas Collection" design paper; Memory Box "Pop Up Joy" (98192); "Winterland Tree" (98168); "Country House" (98165); "Frosty Border" (98171); "Twigs & Berries" (98161); Cheery Lynn Anastasia Border" (B136), and the Martha Stewart "Aspen Snowflake" border punches.
It is a little hard to see so I want to tell you what is written on the design paper "In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there". It appears Santa will be landing any moment on some child's roof top!
From this view you can see the "Joy" popup really well. All the die cut pieces were arranged as shown. As with the other Joy Popup card, I cut a piece of yellow card stock to place behind the house so I could add yellow glitter in the windows. Some glitter was also added to the tree. Along the bottom I added "Diamond Dust" which is a "chunky" glitter and makes perfect snow.
This is the front of the card. I used another piece of design paper from the same BoBunny paper pack. Two of the Memory Box "Twigs & Berries" dies were cut for placement above the sentiment. This is going to be another die I know you will use all year long. This die comes with three pieces - the branch, leaves and the berry. I can see using this branch and leaves in the Spring and adding small flowers. The sentiment is from the Penny Black "Friends and Family" stamp. It was cut out with a Spellbinders "Label Eight" die and sponged with Distress Ink. The Cheery Lynn Anastasia Border was added along the bottom and also sponged.
As you know, all the products I use can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.
Thanks for stopping by - Enjoy your weekend. We did get a light dusting of snow last night so I do believe Winter has arrived.
