Good morning, friends, and welcome to the first day of the Papertrey Ink September new release countdown! I am very excited to be sharing projects with you featuring the Text Block: Christmas Die (available September 15th). This die is all about celebrating the holidays! Let's get to a project shall we?
Side note: If you follow me on Twitter (in the sidebar----->) you may know this already, but we're right in the middle of moving and my hair is on fire. As a result my posts are going to be a little more succinct this month. If you have any questions just leave them in the comments and I'll do my very best to get back to you.
I impressed a Text Block: Christmas die onto Pure Poppy cardstock using the impression plate sandwich. I colored over the words with a glue pen and embellished with glitter (it looks patchy in the photo, but not in real life). The result are a bit like tinsel, which I love. I trimmed around the inside of the frame and matted it using a bit of gold cardstock I happened to have on hand.
Next, I stamped a Vintage Cream card base with holly and berries. I added Glossy Accents to the berries for a bit of shine. When that dried, I added the Text Block shape with foam tape. Easy, but sparkly and perfect for the holiday season. Try and forget that it was 82º here when I made it.
Thanks for joining me today, everyone! Nichole and Dawn are featuring the Text Block: Christmas Die today and Betsy, Erin, Heather, and Melissa also have projects to share. Have a great day and I'll see you tomorrow!
