JoyFrame2Happy Thursday everyone!  Today is the last Thursday before Christmas so a Merry Christmas to all of the wonderful people who join us every week for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.

This is also the start of a little different week for me…a week of JOY.  Back in November I was working on presents for some colleagues and my hostess appreciation event and some other things and just had a ball using the Gift Bow Angel and using it with the word Joy so I thought this week would be a great ‘week of Joy’ as we lead up to Christmas!  So this is my first one.  This is an insert for an 8 x 8 frame.  I did shoot it without the glass so I could get a good picture of it.

Here’s the details…

  • Cherry Cobbler 8 x 8 for base
  • Whisper White Core-dinations (wanted some texture) 5 1/2 x 5 1/2
  • Silver Glimmer 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 (did cut out the middle as it would have been a lot of wasted glimmer!), layer Whisper White piece on it.
  • Add two pieces of Silver 1/8″ Ribbon then add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Okay…you can find a million tutorials on how to make the Gift Bow Angel so I won’t go into that but I used Cherry Cobbler (bottom of dress through the Delicate Designs embossing folder), Blushing Bride (arms and face), Silver Glimmer (halo), Whisper White (collar).
  • Add angel using DOUBLE layer of dimensionals
  • Stamp JOY banner in Versamark, silver emboss, cut out, layer and add to angel using TRIPLE layer of dimensionals.
  • Add little Silver 1/8″ bows to ends of banner and add rhinestones to collar to finish it off.

I really wanted to keep this simple but for it to still be very striking.  I do just LOVE the way this turned out!  Please come back this week to see my other JOY Angels!

  2. Did you do a Christmas card with the bow die…made into an angel but said JOY….used the frosted finishes embellishments. I wanted to make them for Christmas this year and do you think I can find that card.

    Thank you, Diana
