Christmas JOY

It’s time again for another Challenge Chicks Challenge!

This month it’s Anna’s turn and her challenge is… Christmas in July”. Perfect!  I got my monthly Christmas cards done along with the Challenge Chicks Challenge!  😉  This month, Stacy’s challenge is all about JOY.

I had the Sizzix Movers and Shapers JOY die but I wanted to use it alone, without one of the large dies that it’s supposed to go inside.  So I experimented a bit with shims and plates on my Cuttlebug and found a sandwich that worked just fine.  All machines may be slightly different, but here’s what worked for me:  B plate/cardstock/movers & shapers die/B plate/B plate/cereal box shim/cereal box shim.

After die cutting the word JOY, I found a Spellbinders die to cut a frame around it.  I used the Spellbinders Floral Ovals.  Then I hand cut a piece of red cardstock in an oval shape using the embossed, dotted line on the frame as a template.  The white diecut was popped up onto the red layer underneath with foam tape.

Now come play along and show us your Christmas projects on our Facebook page! And use the keyword CHXJULY13 if you upload to the SCS gallery.  Be sure to click on the links below to check out what the other Chicks created!

And if you incorporate JOY, be sure to also use the keyword for the Dirty Dozen Christmas Card challenge!
