Hello crafty friends! It’s Laurie Willison here with some awesome new holiday cards. The dies are all new, from the Celebrate The Season Collection at Spellbinders. I had so much fun playing with all the new Christmas goodies, so I whipped up 3 cards to share with you today.
Winter Welcome Sled Card
The new Winter Welcome Sled Etched Die set is an amazing group of dies to create so many looks. I love the basic sled and all you can add to it, to create clean and simple or super detailed. Today’s card was super simple to make. I used a red card base with a white layer of cardstock where I used the Nestabilites Hemstitch Rectangle to create the frame so the red cardstock could peak through. I built the sled with kraft and silver cardstock and then added in the holiday florals from the same die set.
Glitter Wishes Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set is a new set of plates with LOTS of sentiments included. I wanted to make a bunch at once so I lined up the plates using a large piece of low tack tape and my work mat grid every ¼”. After taping them all down, I added the foil and taped the cardstock down on top. I hot foiled the entire piece at one which gave me a full sheet of sentiments. The best part was adding them to my trimmer and cutting them all at ¼”. Quick and easy sentiment strips!
Stylish Merry Christmas Card
Next, I used the Stylish Merry Christmas Etched Dies to create this large sentiment piece. I used red cardstock for the backing and then Shimmering Tropics Glitter Foam to create the intricate top. I adhered the large glittery sentiment to a white, scored card base. Using Holiday Blooms Etched Dies, I tucked in the greenery around the sentiment to finish off the card.
More Holiday Decorations Card
The last card uses 3 new Spellbinders products: Dazzling Dot Embossing Folder, More Holiday Decorations Etched Dies and Mix and Match Holiday Greetings Etched Dies. I wanted to create another white card where all the color would pop from the space. After adding the string lights in silver cardstock to the embossed card front, I added the lights in Red and Green Glitter Foam, along with more of the Shimmering Tropics Glitter Foam. I love how sparkly the lights look. To finish off the card, I added the die-cut sentiment Merry and Bright across the top.
That is it for today’s holiday projects. I hope you leave with a little inspiration! Thanks for coming by today!
