Hello, lovely crafters and fellow holiday enthusiasts! Today, I am excited to share with you the magic of holiday crafting using fantastic products from Spellbinders. In this blog post, I’ll walk you through the step-by-step process of creating two enchanting holiday cards using some of the products from CLASSIC CHRISTMAS COLLECTION. So, let’s dive in and spread some festive cheer together!
Card 1: Jolly Santa’s Glimmering Greetings
For our first card, we are going all out with a charming Santa centerpiece and an embossed background. Here’s how it all comes together:
Using Spellbinders’ delightful SANTA’S HERE ETCHED DIES, I die-cut pieces from red, black, and white, along with a touch of rose gold card-stock from my stash. Assembling Santa is as delightful as the season itself, and soon we have our iconic focal point.
To create an elegant backdrop, I used Spellbinders’ VINTAGE ORNAMENTS 3D EMBOSSING FOLDER on a panel of BARELY PEACH card-stock. The result is a mesmerizing textured and dimensional.
For the sentiments, I used CHRISTMAS DIE AND GLIMMER SENTIMENTS HOT FOIL PLATE AND DIE SET. This set has dies for Christmas words and foiled sentiment to go with it. I used “Happy Holidays” and silver speckled holographic hot foil, on black and die cut the word happy with white card-stock to add a touch of uniqueness to my greetings.
Bringing It All Together
Assembling the card is a breeze. I placed Santa at the center of the card and nestled the “Happy Holidays” sentiment underneath, creating a visually pleasing arrangement that radiates joy and warmth.
Card 2: A Golden Vignette of Holiday Spirits
For our second card, we are focusing on a captivating background that exudes the holiday spirit. Let’s see how we can create this enchanting piece:
Using a red card-stock panel, I employed Spellbinders’ stunning VINTAGE ORNAMENTS 3D EMBOSSING FOLDER and added a touch of gold ink on its flat surface of the embossing folder before sending it through my die-cutting machine. The result is a beautifully embossed panel with debossed parts that shimmer with golden allure.
Vignette Ink-Blended Edge
To enhance the festive atmosphere, I ink-blended the edges of the embossed panel with black soot distress oxide ink, creating a delightful vignette effect that draws the eye towards the center.
Sentiments in Spotlight
For our sentiment, I turned to Spellbinders’ CHRISTMAS DIE AND GLIMMER SENTIMENTS HOT FOIL PLATE AND DIE SET and added the heartwarming phrase, “Making Spirits Bright.” To add dimension, I backed it with black fun foam die cut making it pop against the background.
