Oh Joy!

I was asked recently if the Typeset Alphabet Bigz Die was worth the $$'s My answer: Yes! I love this die - it adds a big impact to cards and can also be used for all kinds of home decor... more on that later!

In this card I used an ornament as the "O" in Joy. I think it's fun replacing some letters with other fun things, like flowers (see Saturdays post) or elements as in this one.

The ornament instructions are included in my "It's a Keepsake Christmas" tutorial found here

And what about that fun trim - does it look like holly? I hope so - that's what I was trying to imitate. I thought about adding berries along the way and perhaps for another card I will. For this one, simple is fine.

Did you know you just may have a holly border punch and you weren't aware of it? It's the Finishing Touches Edgelit!
Begin with a strip of card stock 1" wide by the length you need.
Place the Edgelit along one side - die cut.

Place the Edgelit along opposite side, matching up the scallops as shown - die cut.

    The piece left over in the middle is the holly border. And you have two pieces of eyelet border left over to use! Is that almost too cool?
