Text Block: Christmas - Day 4

Hello again, friends, and welcome back for Day 4 of this months Papertrey Ink new release countdown! I have another project highlighting the new Text Block: Christmas Die (available September 15th) and I'd love to share it with you!

I focused on just the New Year part of the die yesterday, so I thought today I'd give the Christmas part a little attention.

I started by stamping a row of trees in Limeade Ice ink. I wanted more trees than were on the original stamp, so I did a little masking to extend the line a bit. I went back in and filled in the baubles with Hibiscus Burst, Hawaiian Shores, and Summer Sunrise inks. Then, I glittered the baubles and coated them with Glossy Accents. This both gives them dimension and keeps the glitter contained.

While that dried, I die cut the Text Block: Christmas shape from Hibiscus Burst stock and trimmed out the sections I didn't want to use. Then I decorated a white card base with some patterned paper and a scalloped strip. I tied a crochet thread bow around the base and then mounted my tree and sentiment panel with foam tape.

Thank you for popping in today! I'll see you again tomorrow with another peek. In the meantime, NicholeAshleyBetsyDanielleDawnErinHeatherLauraLaurieMaile, and Melissa are all sharing projects with you today. See you again tomorrow!

Really beautiful card. This one could be used as a shaker card if you die cut multiple pieces and stacked them like Laurie Willison did on her ornament.

I really like that you showed us how we could use just half the sentiment inside the frame.

I like the non-traditional Christmas colors.

Great idea on using glitter and coating the baubles. I love how my favorite text block die can be used to suit each holiday.
