Papertrey Ink September Release Countdown Day 4

Well friends, it's the 4th and final day of the Papertrey Ink September release countdown! Everything will be available for purchase tomorrow night at 10 pm ET! My first card for today uses the new Larger than Life: Peace die and the coordinating Larger than Life: Peace stamp set. I've also used the new Layered Snowflakes as well as a few other new favorites and some tried-and-true staples!

I think it's natural for use to a dove and peace together, so that's what the inspiration point was for this card. I already had all of the bird pieces ready and waiting from day 1. To begin, I die cut the PEACE word; there are two dies that layer over the top of each other to create this look. You could also use either one separately for a different look. I chose to keep them stark white and glue them together using liquid glue. I heat embossed the "on earth and goodwill to all" portion of the sentiment using gold powder on a strip of vellum.

The new Layered Snowflakes come in three different styles, but I opted to use just two. I die cut them from white cardstock as well and a few of the smallest Into the Blooms: Poinsettia die to layer over the top of each snowflake.

I used the two leaves from the Poinsettia die collection and the pine boughs from the new Into the Blooms: Pine dies. I used Distress Oxide ink to color the leaves and the pine boughs .

This was probably my favorite card to make from the entire release! I just love pink and aqua for Christmas cards! 

My final card for today uses the FABULOUS new Snowy Truck Accessories stamp/die set paired with the new Bring Home the Holidays die collection! I have to say, I'm completely IN LOVE with these cute little houses! I've been using some from MFT for my Welcome to the Neighborhood cards, but these are my  new favorites!

I die cut EVERYTHING for this card from white cardstock and either stamped it, blended it, or kept it white to bring this scene together! Confession: I stamped the sentiment at the top of the main panel crooked, but a quick fix with an oval die and a stamped sentiment fixed it up just right! In the end, I actually like the oval detail at the top much better than how I had it! ha ha!

The Snowy Truck Accessories stamp set comes with quite the fun assortment of things to dress up the truck; I used the sled, the bow, the fence on the bed of the truck to hold the tree in, the gift, and a tree....AND the cute sentiment on the side of the truck. There is also a really cute snowman, more gifts...etc.

This was such a fun card to make! I hope you've enjoyed the countdown! Thanks for fluttering by!

I appreciated you sharing your “quick fix” to the sentiment on the snowy truck card. I’ll be remembering that for future use!
