Silent Night

I can't believe it is already time for another Papertrey Ink release night! All the new goodies are now up in the store. This month featured lots of new Christmas and winter sets. The stamp designers created some fabulous sets. One of the most elegant Christmas sets I have seen is the new Silent Night set. It's just beautiful.

For my card, I wanted something simple yet elegant. I stamped the star on vintage cream cardstock with pure poppy ink and cut it out with an oval nestability die. Then, I distressed the edge and matted it with a pure poppy oval. I stamped the sentiment on a vintage cream rectangle, punched the corners with the corner tab punch, matted it with a pure poppy rectangle and added some silver brads. Then, I created the card base from pure poppy cardstock. I cut a piece of patterned paper and matted it with vintage cream cardstock. I sewed around the edge and distressed the vintage cream. I added more silver brads and some pure poppy stitched ribbon. Then, I added the star and sentiment to my card using foam adhesive. My last step was to add some tiny rhinestones to the star.

So, do you have a favorite set from this release? I can't wait to see what everyone starts making when the new sets starting arriving.
