"Joy" Flip card using Graphic 45 Winter Wonderland

Hello Crafty Friends!

As I am writing this blog post, one of my sweet kitties (Pepper) is curled up between my keyboard and my arms.  She is purring away and giving head butts every moment she can.  There are many sources of joy in my life- moments like this are included on my joy list.  It is fitting that she here while I write this post to share the latest Christmas card, "Joy".

The fancy fold card base was created using a flip fold die from Sizzix.  Red card stock was used as the base.  Graphic 45's Winter Wonderland supplied the coordinating patterned papers and fussy cut flowers/stamps.  The Joy die was used to cut gold metallic construction paper.
A Sakura Calligraphy Marker was used to apply the gold on all of the edges.  More gold construction paper was used to die cut the vertical edge (die from the same set) and Nuvo Drops were applied as shown
On the back of the flip, I left the area blank to write a sentiment and sign.
It is difficult to see in the photos, but Stickles was also used in the flower centers and on the stamps.  The card is definitely joyous and glittery.  :)
The card looks complicated to make but the dies and patterned paper did most of the work.  It is a neat style of card because it has dimension but flattens well and is easy to mail.

Hope your day is full of crafty fun and joy!
Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs,
Kathy Jo
