The Joy Of Christmas Designer Paper is gorgeous, and it pairs perfectly with the Joy Of Noel Dies. For this “sneak peek,” I used the NOEL die to cut a checked pattern of the DSP. A piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet, 2 1/4″ X 2 1/4″, works well to give the word Dimension.

Joy of Noel


The Joy Of Christmas DSP along the bottom is 5 1/4″ X 1 1/2″, glued to Basic White Cardstock, 5 1/4″ X 4″. Isn’t it pretty? This layer is glued to a Shaded Spruce card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Here’s a peek at the 12 patterns of paper, but they are more beautiful in person.


Prior to gluing, I embossed the Basic White layer with the Merry Melody Embossing Folder, a favorite that is in the 2023-2024 Annual Catalog.


I completed the card by cutting a Shaded Spruce Cardstock pine bough, and Real Red Cardstock berries, with Joy of Noel Dies.


I was inspired by TGIF.
