Papertrey Ink November Release Countdown: Joyful Snowman, Holiday Cheer Gift Tags, & Holiday Cheer Overlay

Hi everyone! Almost all of the Papertrey Ink's November release has been introduced (check out the blog)! Are you ready for tomorrow? Everything will be available Tuesday, 11/2 at 6 pm EST.

Until then, I have a few cards to share using the new goodies! This first one uses the Joyful Snowman set. I love these types of builder sets where you can create a custom scene. And this little guy is so cute!

STAMPS: Joyful Snowman, Just Sentiments: Snow
INK: True Black, Dark Chocolate, Berry Sorbet
PAPER: White, True Black
DIES: Joyful Snowman, On the Border: Splendid Snowflakes Frame Die, Border Bling: Skinny Postage Frames Die

I really love the larger scale of the snowman in this set. Great size for your A2 cards! I went for a classic red, blue, and black color combo. And for fun, I made one of his mittens on the ground. It's fun to add little unexpected details to cards. 

This next card uses the new Holiday Cheer Gift Tag set and the Holiday Cheer Overlay set. These sets are just gorgeous! The Holiday Cheer Gift Tag set includes dies for several iconic holiday shapes (tree, gift, star, ornament, and bow). The coordinating Holiday Cheer Overlay set includes ornate filigree designs that can be layered over the tags. I don't have a tag to share today, but look how beautiful the star tag looks with the matching overlay! 

PAPER: Vintage Cream, Vellum, Gold Foil
DIES: Holiday Cheer Gift Tags, Holiday Cheer Overlay

The star and overlay are so beautiful that I really wanted to focus on it. I reverse die cut the star into an A2 panel and backed it with vellum. Then I added the filigree overlay in rose gold foil. Last but not least, I added gems within the die cut design and on the tips of the stars. I think the star really stands on its own, so the sentiment is on the inside. I used a sentiment from the new Inside Greetings Heaven and Nature Sing set. 

I'll have a few more cards to share tomorrow on Release Day! If you want to see more of the release, stop by the Papertrey Ink blog!

Mahalo and aloha!
