Sparkling Christmas Collection – Cardmaking Inspiration with Franci
Hi everyone! It’s Franci here with you today showcasing some of the products from the new Spellbinders Sparkling Christmas release! If you already enjoy my crafting adventures I’m so excited for you to see what I created with this collection and if I’m new to you.. Hello!
My name is Francesca but I’m pretty much Franci all the time, I’m from Milan, Italy and I’m passionate about making cute things with stamps, dies and colors!
I’m all in for cute Festive stuff and Christmas is my favorite so I’m over the moon for these new Spellbinders goodies!
Pastel Christmas Cards
Aww I love these cards so much! Here I was inspired by my favorite pastel colors to create modern Xmas designs. For my HOHOHO card I first created my background with a stripe of a dark blue cardstock and another one cut out of silver glitter paper. Then I die cut my sentiment and colored it with copics. I die cut some more elements out of silver glitter paper and white cardstock and glued everything together.
For my Christmas tree card I first created my background by dry embossing a dotted stencil onto a piece of dark blue cardstock, then I die cut all the elements, colored them with copics and glued them down with some foam adhesive. I added my sentiment ( die cut out of silver glitter paper) and some other embellishments like white Nuvo Drops to finish my card up and it’s ready to wish a dear friend a beautiful Christmas.
Traditional Christmas Card & Tag
If you’re looking for a more traditional Christmas here’s a card + tag combo..
For the card I chose to create a long one to fit my sentiment perfectly. I first cut out some long stripes out of white, kraft and dark cardstock and added some dry embossed details on to the dark blue one with my scoring board. I layered and glued everything together with liquid glue and foam adhesive, die cut the sentiment and added some dot details on to all the kraft elements.
Replacing the “o” with a little custom Xmas wreath adds so much to this design! Creating it was super simple with all the little holly and pine branches little dies included in the set: I die cut them all out of white cardstock, colored them with copics, added some white details and then arranged and glued them together with liquid glue.
The coordinated tag is the perfect mini add on to pop on a present and this die design is simply amazing, so detailed! Here I die cut the main tag body out of dark blue cardstock and added the sentiment i die cut out of kraft cardstock with some foam tape. I added some dots with a white gel pen and also some other little detail, plus silver twine at the top.
