Morning crafters, hope this finds you all safe and well, lots of hugs to those who are not. Another weekend over and wasn't it dismal? Rain, rain & more rain lol! Well a little over 5 weeks to Christmas I think! Don't you just love it when I keep reminding you?????? Got no where near getting all my Christmas presents, struggling what to get people really, same old in shops or far too expensive!  Anyhow, onto today's post...

This started out as a White on White card!!! As I was going along I thought I would add some pretty paper behind the die all glittered up, then I decided to add the ribbon around the die as the colour matched the pretty paper, unfortunately you cannot see the paper very well. I have used the same paper behind the JOY die.

Very simple card just Matt and layer white card, top card embossed and die cut out. Glitter some paper and attached it to the back of the die piece. Thread ribbon through the die and make a bow at the bottom, place the die cut back in place in the aperture along with the center die.

Die cut the JOY out of pretty paper for the back and White card for the top scroll bit, attach together with glue and place them on the card as seen.

Add a sparkly gem in the middle of the bow and there is your finished card.

  1. Good morning Jacquie,
    Love this, the threaded ribbon is brilliant. Also how you have used the Joy Die.
    Know what you mean about the "gifts" I have decided just to go for what i can afford. Really not what I had in mind BUT there you go.......!!!
    I feel the quality of some goods leaves a lot to be desired.
    Happy Shopping
