Joy To The world

A funny thing happened while I was shopping at the
Dies R Us store!
I was looking for a globe die,
typed in the word "world"
and in among the globes was this gorgeous
"Joy To The World" die by Cheery Lynn Designs!
It literally "fell" into my cart!!

It is absolutely stunning when cut!
I cut the wreath die 3 times,
once from a darker green paper,
the second from a medium green paper
and the third from a light green paper.
I stacked them, each one slightly offset.
A few red "berries" (pearls) were added.

The Joy To The World was cut
first from a white craft foam,
then from red card stock.
One was glued on the other.
I love how it gives the words dimension!

Last I embossed a small snowflake panel
for the wreath to be adhered to.

Wowie, the wreath and sentiment combo is a show stopper! LOVE how you layered the wreath using different shades of green, and I know I have some of that craft foam. Got to look for it. Really love the dimension. Happens to me all the time at Dies R Us -- looking for one thing, find something else. Maybe change my mind, or more likely just get it all. I'm so bad!

Oh wow, what a gorgeous die cut and your card is fabulous! I was just wondering if you happened to stop by CropStop to check out the winner from last month's challenge. If not, you will sure want to do so! Congrats!
I also hope you will stop by and share with us again at CropStop this month, as well as at Word Art Wednesday this week.
