I delayed ordering the Peace & Joy Bundle, but it recently arrived, and I couldn’t wait to play with it. I can’t resist paper words! You can see the complete bundle in my Product List below.

The first thing I did was use a Joy Die to cut the word from Brushed Metallic Cardstock. By using a piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet, it was easy to add dimension to the thin font. Doesn’t it look pretty?

Wreath of Joy


Next, I used two Wreath Builder Dies to cut the wreath from Whisper White Cardstock, and Shaded Spruce Cardstock.

Before assembling the wreath, I cut a layer of Whisper White Cardstock for the background (4″ X 5 1/4″), and stamped berries (dots from In The Pines Stamp Set) in Real Red Ink. I stamped them in a circle, so they would show beneath the leaves of the wreath.


After stamping the berries, I embossed the white layer with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder, and glued it to a Shaded Spruce card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″).


To complete the sentiment, I added “to you and yours” from the Peace & Joy Stamp Set. Wanting to match the gold “Joy,” I stamped the words in VersaMark, sprinkled with Gold Embossing Powder, and set it with the Heat Tool. Then, I fussy cut the words, and attached with a thin “edge” from Dimensionals.


I was inspired by the Paper Players color challenge.
