It's Release Day for Taylored Expressions! Today I get to share a card I created using the new Banner Holiday set. If you've been checking out the Baker's Dozen this week, you will have seen this set as it coordinates with the other It's a Banner Day series of stamps and dies. I wanted to do something a little different with several of the fifteen holiday sentiments included in the set and create my own patterned paper.


I started by simply lining a few of my favorites from the set and stamped them across some cardstock in alternating green and red. Then, after trimming the panel, I ran it through with the new Trim the Tree Taylored die and adhered some fun patterned paper behind each tree section. I topped it off with some Baker's twine and I was left with a fun, simple card to put away until Christmas!

BEAN NOTES
