Christmas in July – Spellbinders

(*Affiliate links used whenever possible at no extra cost to you.)

I’m sharing more inspiration using Spellbinders’ amazing Christmas in July release! Check my last blog post to see a little stitching in fun, non-traditional holiday colors using the Stitched Diamond Argyle die.

Today, both of my cards feature new glimmer plates with coordinating dies. They are perfect for CAS to more complicated designs and everything in-between. I combined each card with other Spellbinders products for added detail. See below for easy to follow step-by-step instructions.

Card 1: Blooming Tree

  1. Trim a piece of patterned paper from the Christmas Traditions paper pad to 4 x 5.25 inches. Adhere to an A2 card base.
  2. Using silver glimmer foil, foil the Blooming Tree, flowers, and leaves on dark green cardstock. Die cut the tree, flowers and leaves with the coordinating dies.
  3. Color the small images with copic markers and adhere to the tree with liquid glue and foam tape.
  4. Die cut additional flowers and leaves from the Christmas Blooms die set and the Stitched Ornament die.
  5. Glue the large leaves to the card front and pop up the tree with foam tape.
  6. Foil the sentiment from Yana’s Christmas Sentiments on red cardstock.
  7. Embellish with Fashion Silver Embellishments.

Card 2: Blooming Ornament

  1. Trim a piece of light gray cardstock to 4 x 5.25 inches.
  2. Dry emboss the panel using the Plaid Tidings Background. Glue to the A2 card base.
  3. Using silver matte glimmer foil, foil the Blooming Ornament on Indigo cardstock. Foil the bow on light blue and the ornament hanger on silver. Die cut all pieces with the coordinating dies.
  4. Foil the small flowers and leaves from the Blooming Tree on light blue and light gray cardstock. Die cut all pieces with the coordinating dies.
  5. Lightly ink blend some blue ink on the bow for depth.
  6. Die cut additional flowers and branches from the Christmas Blooms die set.
  7. Adhere all of the pieces together on the card front, popping up the ornament with foam tape for dimension.
  8. Foil the sentiment from Merry Glimmer Sentiments on light blue cardstock. Die cut with the coordinating dies and adhere with foam tape.
