Taylored Expressions November Sneak Peeks: Joy Banner

Thanks for stopping by for Day 3 of  Taylored Expressions November Release Sneak Peeks. Today the Creative Team is sharing projects created with the new Initially Dies. Each letter of the alphabet is offered in a set of 3, a large uppercase, small lowercase, and small uppercase. So many possibilities!!

All the new products will be available on November 3 at 7 AM PDT!

For my project I decided to create a new holiday banner for my home. I used the largest die in the Initially J, O, and Y dies. 

For the base of the banner I used the Frame in Frame 2 Cutting Plate and added Sugar Cube Card Stock, embossed with the Holly Embossing Folder, behind the frame. I punched holes in the two upper corners to string twine through for hanging.

I added the hat with the Little Bits - Santa Hat and the embellishment in the lower corner with the Holiday Florals Stamp Set and Dies.

I accented the O with a tree from the Build A Scene - Winter Trees and a Little Bits - Reindeer. I sponged the tree with Sugar Cube Pigment Ink. 

Here I added skates with the Little Bits - Ice Skates.
