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!

I love simple elegance of this joyful card!

Your ornaments are so lovely with the sparkle, sure to bring joy!

Gorgeous festive card and a great assortment of dies to make it, Cathy x

Love your pretty 'tall' card! The ornaments fit so nicely along with the sentiment and love the bright red and silver colors. Thanks for video and the idea for using an embossing folder for the ornament centers.

Very pretty card, Robin. Love the red and white color combo and the joy die is amazing.

Hi Robin,
I love your joyful, festive card. Yes, it’s time to start holiday cards and crafting (while it’s 90 degrees!)😰😉

Great card. I like how the joy really pops.

This is a fun die that can be used with or without the inlaid effect...love it!

The dramatic JOY Outline die is wonderful in your card design! The embossing you did on the ornaments is a great addition along with the silver outline stitched border on each ornament. Thank you for your instructional video!

What a nice idea to make long cards for Christmas. I have some red & green envelopes on hand and you've inspired me to use them this year. Thanks so much for the lovely inspiration!

Hi What a beautiful card
