Have you seen the newest collection from Spellbinders? It's called Sparkling Christmast Collection.
I have officially made my first holiday card of the season! I have been sitting on these cards since I received the products back in June!
I fell in love with the Festive Noel Etched Dies.
I began by layering strips of colored card stock in a non-traditional color scheme (I love doing this!). From this panel, the NOEL was die cut and layered onto the white "backer" die.
The rest of the embellishing came next adding in all the little details with the additional dies included. I love paper piecing so this was fun! This whole focal point was added to a Stone card stock that was paper pierced at the top and bottom. This color gives plenty of room to let the white focal point a way to shine! I didn't mention but almost every layer of this design was done with multiple layers of card stock for dimension but still allowing it to be "flat" for mailing.
Layering dies have so much versatility. The Kaleidoscope Plaid Etched Dies are no exception however they are smaller in size but have three layers!
For my card, I kept it simple by lightly ink blending Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink over a white note card. After adhering together just two of the layers of the plaid (four times), the four panels were adhered to the ink blended background touching each other for a seamless look. This panel was spritzed with Sheer Spray for a subtle but impactful glittery background. To finish, I added a die cut square and adhered a (retired Spellbinders) snowflake die done in silver glitter cardstock. No sentiment? This will be perfect to send a wintery message to a friend!
