There are so many wonderful products in this new release that it was hard to decide what to use!  I loved the simplicity of the Joy Circle die so I thought I would start with that as my focal point.

I began by adhering a piece of plaid washi tape to the left side of my card front. I placed my joy die in middle of the card and die cut it.  This left me with a circle that was cut through the washi tape as well as the cardstock and the die cut image.  I was able to peel off the washi tape from my die cut, but if you have difficulty peeling the tape off, just die cut another one from white cardstock.


Next I spattered the background with black ink and stamped a few music notes on the card front.  Then I adhered this to a red mat layer and glued it to a white card base.

I glued the Joy die cut inside the circle.


Next I stamped and embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder on a strip of black cardstock.  The sentiment said "joy to the world" but I masked the word joy and used the rest of the sentiment for my card. I stamped, colored and die cut the bunny and glued it to the sentiment strip of paper.  I used foam tape to adhere it to the card front. 


I hope I inspired you today!

Great addition to use the plaid washi tape on this card. And the circle joy will have many uses- this is a cute stylish card!

I struggle sometimes with washi tape, but I love this idea and how you used it. This is just a fun card - the colors and design are wonderful!

I especially like the inlaid die and plaid accent...very festive!
