Holiday 2019 Inspiration | Clever Holiday Cards with Svitlana Shayevich
Hello! This is Svitlana from Craft Walks. I’m so excited to be a guest here on the Spellbinders blog today. I want to share three holiday cards showcasing Holiday 2019 collection.
I firmly believe that it is never too early to start making Holiday cards and I was happy to get an opportunity to make several for this post.
For my first card I used two die sets – Christmas Bandit and Joy. The raccoon head from the Christmas Bandit Die Set fits perfectly in the space for letter O in the JOY word of the Joy Die Set.
This card took a million die-cuts to make, but it was totally worth it. Look at this cute raccoon!!!
First I die-cut the base JOY die out of a brown cardstock. Then, I die-cut small details out of green (pine branches and holly leaves), red (poinsettias and berries) and white for letters. I adhered all elements onto the brown die-cut.
Next, I die-cut parts of the raccoon head out of kraft, brown and white cardstock. Also I made die-cuts for its hat and scarf using red and white cardstock.
I assembled the raccoon head and popped it onto the JOY die-cut in place of the letter O.
I made a card base out of a light blue cardstock and white embossed a snowfall background onto it.
Lastly I adhered the JOY die-cut onto the card.
White, Red, Green, Light Blue, Brown, Kraft Cardstock, Snowfall Background Stamp, White Embossing Powder, Clear Embossing Ink, Liquid Adhesive
For my next card I used the Merry Hugs Die Set.
I started by embossing a white panel with the Cozy Knit Embossing Folder. After that I foam mounted it onto a white card base.
I die-cut the dog from the set out of white and black cardstock and assembled the bland and white dog by adhering its parts onto a piece of scrap cardstock smaller than the dog die. After that I popped the dog onto the card.
I die-cut the glasses out of red cardstock and adhered onto the dog. And I stamped a red Gingham background and die-cut a bow out of it. Which I then adhered onto the card.
Lastly I die-cut the sentiment out of a red cardstock and adhered it below the dog.
White, Red Cardstock, Gingham Background Stamp, Red Dye Ink, Liquid Adhesive, Foam Adhesive
For my last card I used the Santa’s Workshop Die Set to make a snowball card featuring a cozy winter scene.
First I made a card base out of a light blue cardstock. Then I die-cut the snowball’s inside part of of the same cardstock. After that I blended light blue ink onto this piece to make it a bit different from the card base.
I die-cut the elements for my scene out of white, red, green, brown and black cardstock and assembled a winter scene inside of the snowball.
Which I foam mounted onto the light blue card base.
I die-cut the sentiment out of a red cardstock using dies from the Merry Hugs Die Set and adhered them below the snowball. Which finished off my card.
White, Red, Green, Brown, Black, Light Blue Cardstock, Liquid Adhesive, Foam Adhesive
I hope you liked the ideas of holiday cards I shared today. I had so much playing with die-sets from the Holiday 2019 collection. There is so much potential in them. Also I want to note that such cards is a good chance to use all those colored cardstock leftovers we save”for later”. I have a lot that I’ve been storing for years. And working with such die sets I use up quite a lot of them.
Thank you so much for visiting! Come back again to find more inspiration and ideas. I would be thrilled if you visited my blog at craftwalks.com or Instagram.
Have an amazing day!
The dog is precious!
