Cool JOY

P1060401"Put JOY on it" seems to be the holiday version of "put a bird on it."  Luckily, we have the great Pop Up Joy Die 98192 to do just that!  It's teamed with the Retro Border Die 98170 used as snowflakes - and the Poppystamps Pine Tree Border Die 809.

Be sure to visit the Poppystamps blog too - add your comments about Poppystamps dies and stamps - and you may win great prizes, selected by Dave himself!  The entry deadline is Midnight Pacific this Saturday, December 17th.  

Winter Sky Designer Foils and Scor-Tape create the sparkly shimmer on the Pine Tree Border.  We used the Foils in the Holiday Express at Impress and people loved them!  Diecuts from the Retro Border sparkle with the addtion of Peridot Glitter, also adhered with Scor-Tape.  Here are the directions for this contemporary greeting:
