Hi friends, after watching Yana Smakula share so many Christmas cards lately, I think I caught that bug too. So, today with the Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month – September 2020, I made a Christmas card. This month’s APG dies are so intricate and pretty, they lend themselves quite well to a lot of different occasion cards. I am thinking wedding or anniversary or even girly birthday card in addition to holiday cards. That’s what I so love about APG and Spellbinders dies.
With that, let’s take a look at the card itself:
- Spellbinders APG Die of the month – September 2020
- Spellbinders Holly Frame Gala Etched Dies Christmas Cascade Collection by Becca Feeken
- Christmas Wishes – Card Kit of the Month Club Nov 2019
- Simon Says Stamp Clear embossing and watermark ink
- Simon Says Stamp fine detail embossing powders – White and Gold
- Die cut all the pieces.
- Using the outer most frame from APG dies, cut two white and a blue panel.
- Create a top folding shaped card using the two white pieces (See tutorial below or here.)
- Layer the blue panel on the front of this card
- Tape the outermost die along with the inner corners and die cut a dark blue lattice piece.
- Attach this to the card front using Multi Medium Matte.
- For the main panel, use MISTI and stamp the sentiment with Simon Says Stamp Clear Embossing ink.
- Heat emboss with gold. Move the paper ever so slightly. It happened by accident to me, but I decided to take advantage of it. This time I heat embossed with white detail powder. It looks like a gold shadow.
- Finally die cut it with the label die from Spellbinders Holly Frame Gala set.
- Die cut and assemble the deer using Multi Medium Matte.
- Also die cut and add a tiny little flower to her neck.
- Assemble the label and foam mount in the center of the card front.
- Embellish with gems and call it done.
I also made a quick pictures-video for you, I hope that helps too :-)
