Joy Card and Tutorial

Today I wanted to show you some different ways to use the Memory Box "Ribbon Candy Border".  When you die cut this you end up with three pieces.

Here you can see the die on the left and three different colors of the border with the pieces separated.  You can use each piece alone or combine different colors for fun effects.  

This picture show how I have added the single ribbon strips to the main piece to come up with different color combinations.  Wouldn't that red and white one look great with a candy cane theme!   For my card I used the red frame and inserted the green strips for my border.

This is a 5.5"x6" card.  I used the new eBosser Delicate Dots embossing folder to create my background.  The "JOY" was die cut using the Memory Box "Bubble Joy" die.  It was centered and taped on the piece of red card stock then die cut in my eBosser.  The die cuts out all the little dots to form the word.  You can then add any color of card stock to the back for a combination of colors.  As you can see, I backed by sentiment with green.  One of the new Cheery Lynn "Snowflowers" was added to the corner.  

Between the sentiment and the Ribbon Candy Border I added the Poppy Stamps "Blooming Poinsettia".  I only used the two smallest sets of petals because I didn't need a large flower. Below the poinsettia I added two Memory Box "Crystal Snowflakes".  The Memory Box "Elegant Scrollwork" was added to the side of the flower.  For some glitz, I added Kaiser Craft clear rhinestones.
