Hello everyone! This is Jennifer Rustioni from @armieritagli! I’m so happy to be here again as a guest on the Spellbinders Blog! Today I share with you three Christmas cards I created featuring the new beautiful Simon’s Snow Globes Collection! This collection is truly amazing and perfect for creating a lot of Christmas cards!
The first card I realized is featuring the super fun Simon’s Snow Globe and Snowman Scene Etched Dies! I started die-cutting the snow globe. I colored the globe blending some Distress Ink in the shades of blue and then colored the base using Copic Markers. After that, I die-cut the different parts of the snowman, colored them with Copic Markers, and assembled it. I die-cut the snowy hill and covered it using a white snow-paste pen.
At this point, I assembled the snow globe with the hill and the snowman. I realized the highlights and snowflakes with a white gel pen. I die-cut the gold banner with the sentiment and glued it on the base of the snow globe. At last, I realized the base of my card by embossing a red cardstock with the new Geo Quilt 3D Embossing Folder. I just blending the edges of the base with some Distress Ink Aged Mahogany and then I glued the snow globe on it.
For my second project, I chose to use the amazing Playful Poinsietta 3D Embossing Folder and coordinate die cut. I started realizing the background by embossing a green card stock. Then I blended the edges with some Distress Ink in the shades of dark green. At this point, I embossed another card stock, this time using a red one. I die-cut the poinsettia and blending on it some Distress Ink Aged Mahogany.
I gold hot foiled a sentiment from the Wonderful Winter Sentiments Hot Foil Plate & Die Set, and then die cut it with the coordinate die. At last, I assembled my card and added some gold details on the poinsettia.
LET IT SNOW
The last card I created features the beautiful Sparkling Snow 3D Embossing Folder. I embossed a white card stock leaving a smooth strip downward. Then I blended some Distress Ink in the shades of blue and truly loved how the details come out! After that, I splashed some water drops and added other snowflakes with a white gel pen.
I realized the main sentiment by gold hot foiling a sentiment from the Wonderful Winter Sentiments Hot Foil Plate & Die Set, and then die cut it with the coordinate die. Then I added a secondary sentiment using the Christmas Magic Glimmer Hot Foil Plate. At last, I added some white enamel dots.
