Hi crafty people! I'm back with, you guessed it, another Christmas card featuring some new products from the Papertrey Ink October Release! One of the great things about making all these Christmas cards is that now I'm almost done! I will still mass produce some more in the next month or so, but I have lots of cards ready to go! Have you started on your Christmas cards? How many do you make? I usually make about 75 handmade cards. I used to make them all the same but that's not really my gig. I get bored making a ton of cards all the same way. I like to pick out cards that I think the person will like! I'd love to hear your traditions about this!
Today I'm featuring a new addition to the "To The Point Edgers" Collection. These are amazing border dies that give such pretty sharp, crisp edges. They are so versatile and such a staple to have in your crafty stash. These new ones won't be leaving my desk for a while I'm sure. I chose some of my favorite Winter themed PTI stamp sets and used a new color scheme of red, white and kraft. I'm loving those colors together!! I hope you do to! Supplies at the end of the post.

I started with a white A2 card base and layered Kraft onto it. I used the GORGEOUS Fair Isle Borders stamp set to stamp the pattern in black ink onto white paper. I stamped the stamp three times to get this effect. It was so easy to line up too. Didn't even use my MISTI this time! I layered the white piece with the Fair Isle pattern onto the kraft paper. Then I stamped and die cut out the sled using red and green ink on kraft paper.
I used the new To The Point Edgers II dies and cut one edger in red and one in white to layer together. I love that big bold scallop edge!! EEK! I adhered those two together and layered that part on top of my card.
I used foam squares to attach the sprig of greenery to the sled, and to attach the sled to the card. I stamped the sentiment vertically on the left edge in rich black!
Here's a close up of those beautiful edgers dies. Swoon.
It was super fun to showcase some of my favorite PTI stamp sets with you today in combination with the edgers dies. I forgot how much I love those Fair Isle patterns!!!
Thank you for coming by today! It's been so much fun sharing with you all week! My husband has been away on business this week and I can't wait to see him tomorrow. Kitty misses him too. It was a productive week, but now I'm ready to have some Autumn fun with the hubs. Hope you have something fun planned for your weekend. XOXO
