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 :-)
