Text Block: Christmas - Day 3

Good morning, everyone! Welcome back to Day 3 of the Papertrey Ink new release countdown! I have another project to share featuring the Text Block: Christmas Die (available September 15th), so let's get to it.

I wanted to showcase the New Year portion of the die today, so I trimmed out the Christmas part after die cutting (which I did 3 times and layered together).


I die cut "Happy" from a piece of Night Sky shimmer stock. I used a post it note to keep the letters from shifting. I stamped and heat embossed flower centers from Funky Florals (a special edition set, but you could get the same results with a similar image) using silver and gold embossing powders.


Then I impressed a White Shimmer card base with the Center Stage Cover Plate and mounted the firework panel and the "New Year" frame in the center. The shimmer stock totally makes this card.

Alrighty, well, that's all for me today. I'll be back tomorrow with another project featuring the Text Block: Christmas Die. In the meantime, Nichole, Ashley, Betsy, Danielle, Dawn, Erin, Heather, Laura, Laurie, Maile, and Melissa are all sharing projects with you today. See you again tomorrow!

Awesome idea to use this text block die for only the New Year portion - duh. Why didn't I think of that. Thanks, Lizzie!
