Are you ready to take a look at some of the new release?   I used a bunch of the new dies in my card, but the focal point is one of the adorable Mason Jar dies.  I used the die to create something that I've actually made in real life, a Mason jar snow globe!  Since the Mason jar has a thin edge, I created an inlaid shaker (the shaker is flush with the card panel as opposed to on top of it).   One of the snowmen from the Swanky Snowdudes set was the perfect size for inside my snow globe:)


The Holly die and the Merry Christmas die are also from the new release.  To make the sentiment a bit bolder, I layered two of the die cuts together.    So much fun making holiday cards again!


Thanks for hopping with the Paper Smooches gang today!  The next stop on the hop is the lovely Kalyn Kepner!  Have fun!

aloha,
jj
