Text Block: Christmas - Day 5

Good morning, everyone, and welcome back for Day 5 of the Papertrey Ink new release countdown! I have one last project to share today featuring the Text Block: Christmas Die (available September 15th). There are few things that scream "Christmas" to me more than evergreens and snow, so today I put together a shaker card incorporating those elements. Let's get to it!


I began by stamping the snow background onto Aqua Mist cardstock. I followed up with the tree from O Tannenbaum. The snowbanks were die cut, inked along the top edge, and textured (to look like drifts) before being embellished with glitter and adhered to the card base. I created the shaker with clear cardstock, a Spring Moss die cut, and narrow foam tape strips. I filled it with the same chunky glitter I used for the snowbanks. I added a small, red rhinestone to the star topper on the tree as a final touch.

That's all for me for this countdown. Thank you so much for joining me this week. And thank you for your understanding regarding my brevity this month. Again, if you have any questions about this (or any other) post, just ask in the comments and I'll do my best to get back to you.

Don't forget to check in with the other ladies today and tomorrow for even more inspiration using this month's new releases. NicholeAshleyBetsyDanielleDawnErinHeatherLauraLaurieMaile, and Melissa are all sharing their beautiful projects with you. Have a great day and I'll see you again soon!
