I've got some really fun Christmas cards for you today, using Spellbinders new Be Bold Color Block Merry Christmas dies. I really had fun making these!
supplies: kraft, Green Apple, Lipstick Red, and Polished Gold mirror card, Be Bold Color Block Merry Christmas die set, adhesive foam strips
This set is engineered to make a regular slimline size card, 8 1/2" x 3 1/2 ", and for my first play I went with traditional Christmas colors and gold. On this card, I raised my letters above my kraft card base - the foam strips I used were perfect for doing this. By cutting my letters from 2 colors, I automatically get enough to make 2 cards....the same would apply with however many colors you choose, so this is a great design for mass producing!
Next, I chose some different colors, added some snowflakes to the mix, and glued my letters down flat to the base, lifting the "merry" on this one.
supplies: white, Lipstick Red, Green Apple, Doll Pink, Audrey Blue and silver glitter card, Be Bold Color Block Merry Christmas die set, some snowflake transparencies
This time my small sentiment is cut from silver glitter card, 5 layers deep, and the snowflakes are as old as dirt from my stash. Since they're printed on acetate, they add just a little somethin' without taking away from the bold lettering.
I think this would also be fun to use small-scale printed papers for either the letters or the background.
Many thanks to Spellbinders for sharing this set with me!
