Holiday Blog Blitz! Joy to the World
by Robin Tharaldson

BlogBlitzAug3 Full NO

Can you believe it's August already?!!??? It is definitely time to start thinking about making your holiday cards and projects! AND what a better way than Poppystamps Holiday 2018 Release! Not to mention a Blog Blitz where you could be the winner of one of the NEW dies from the release!

I decided to use a #10 envelope for my cards this year! It's still first class postage but has that different look! The #10 envelopes I am using are from Paper Source and are much heavier than a standard office supply envelope.

My Joy to The World card features several of the dies from the Holiday Release! For the background of the ornaments I used the largest of the Retro Ornaments dies and then embossed them using a snowflake embossing folder.

For my JOY I used the Joy Outline die set! I cut the outline three times from white cardstock, stacked together to create more dimension and then added a single layer of the red joy! The following video will show you how to create this card!
