2. I take a side folding card base using Rich red cardstock for the base and die cut J and Y from white and red cardstock. For making the word JOY, I use a snowflake die for my O. And cut papers similarly and adhere them to get a little shadow of red cardstock. I use a red bakers twine for the snowflake that has a loop on it.
