This is a quick & pretty holiday card that I created this past weekend when I got together with members of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals in San Diego.  More details on the rest of our incredible papercrafting projects and the wonderful time we had on my Stampin’ Pretty Facebook Page.

The concept for the card is from a class we took at the Stampin’ Up! Convention in Salt Lake City last July.  Fortunately, Linda Foster of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals, had the learning curve mastered and shared tips so that creating the five layers of “Joy” was quick and easy.

COMING UP TOMORROW!  I’ll share a 1 Minute to WOW! Video Tutorial detailing how to create the layered “Joy” sentiment!


  • SNEAK PEEK!  Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies offer the “Joy” die as part of the collection.  The dies will be available Aug. 28, when the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog begins.
  • “Joy” was built with four Real Red cardstock layers and a Silver Foil layer on top.  I love how the red below plays up the dimension!

  • Stampin’ Up! Transfer Adhesive Sheets were adhered to the cardstock/silver foil and cropped with the”joy” die.  Easy to secure!

  1. I love the modern feel of this card, mary. So fresh and festive. 😉

    What a wonderful card…love that the Joy has a tiny it of red peeking behind the foil paper….really fabulous!!!! Have been seeing some pictures of your weekend and know everyone there had a fabulous time! TFS!

  3. No worries, Sally. My blog will always be the “go to” for tips, projects and specifics (including videos). When I’m on the road or have a lot of pix to share in “real time,” Facebook is a good solution.

  4. I enjoy your cards you share with everyone but I hope you will continue
    to offer them and the “how to'” on email. I do not use twitter or facebook.
    Thank you.

  5. I prefer print catalogs over on-line (but have the catties on my smart phone, of course, for emergencies) so thought the option to print posts would be helpful to some with the same penchant for print! So excited you like it!

  6. Thank you for the added option to print directly from the post. I have been a daily follower of your tremendous card ideas for a few years now, and this will make it so much easier for me to save anything I’ve printed to possibly CASE later. Love your daily inspiration!

    Hi Mary, Love the card. I was telling a friend about the layering of the Joy! (saw it on Pals FB) Glad she will get to read this herself. I am most excited about your new “print” option. I have a 3″ binder of ideas that I have cut and pasted to keep. I guess I’m just an old fashioned “paper” person. I need something in front of me, and my computer is not on my craft desk. Looking fwd to printing many of your projects.

  8. Very exciting – especially the foil. A new dimension to the art of cardmaking! Thanks, Mary.

  9. I love the dimension of this card, what a clever idea to stack the cut out “Joy” word to raise it. Thanks in advance for the video Mary, I’m really curious as to how you managed to stack the word so perfectly.
