Good Morning, everyone. I hope you've been enjoying this blog blitz week with all of the wonderful cards showcasing the latest Memory Box release! My card today features the Snowflake Joy die. There are lots of ways to use this die, and because it's nice and large, you can always substitute a variety of things for the "O". Love it!

Joy and Snowflake - 1

I cut a piece of white card stock to 4" x 5-1/4", and covered it by sponging Peeled Paint Distress Ink through the Pattern Tula stencil. I adhered this piece to a white card base, and added at 1" strip of red card stock as shown.  I die cut two of the Snowflake Joy, one from red card stock and the other from white. I covered the snowflake with glitter, and arranged it and the letters in a diagonal onto a piece of green card stock cut to 2-3/4" x 4-1/8", using foam tape for dimension. I added the center of the red snowflake onto the center of the glittered one.

Joy and Snowflake - 2

Once that was assembled, I added it to the card front with mounting tape. I scattered a few shiny sequins, and that completed this quick and easy card!

Joy and Snowflake - 3
