While designing my “YOU” card a few days ago, I made a fun discovery. If you turn “YOU” over and snip off half of the “U,” it spells “JOY.” So, that’s exactly what I did when making today’s card. I placed the die, “YOU,” from the Celebrate You die set, on the back side of a Gold Foil sheet, and ran it through the Big Shot. You’ll end up with the cut edge of the letters showing, rather than the smooth, but I like the way it looks in this case.


I was happy with my vertical “YOU,” so decided to repeat that design with “JOY.” Here’s my “YOU” card, if YOU missed it.

Unisex “YOU” Birthday Card


The vertical “JOY,” was also perfect for this week’s CAS(E) this sketch challenge.


Once I had my three “JOYs” die cut and snipped, I glued them to a strip of Whisper White cardstock, layered on Gold Foil. I glued this strip on the left side of my Thick Whisper White card base, and waited for inspiration to come.

Wanting to keep it simple, I found the die cuts to use in the Pretty Pines die set. I cut two pine boughs from Thick Whisper White cardstock, and placed them to mimic the banner shape in the sketch. To tie it together, I added a die cut of berries and a Gold Foil bow.


The  finishing touch was three white stars from the Metallics Sequin Assortment.
