Spellbinders Sparkling Christmas

I had the great pleasure to create with select products from the beautiful and fun Sparkling Christmas Collection from Spellbinders that released on August 10th. The collection of standard dies and dies for hot foiling will make your holiday crafting sparkle!

My first card features Shapeabilities Sunday Drive Etched Dies and the coordinating 
Die D-Lites Sunday Drive with Santa Etched Dies from the Sparking Christmas Collection. What a fun pairing to create a custom holiday cards! I die cut the pieces from Sunday Drive and colored them individually with ink or metallic gold. Before adhering them to the card base, I inked a road and added some snow to the card stock base. I just loved seeing the car come to life.

Next, I did the same process for the Sunday Drive with Santa, also very much enjoyed seeing Santa and Rudolph come to life and the whole scene come together.

My second card features how I used Sunday Drive with Santa by itself to create a clean and simple holiday card. I love the nod to the classic Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer song.

I ran Sunday Drive with Santa through my die-cutting machine nine times, and then inked each reindeer with various shades of brown ink, coloring the antlers with a marker. I arranged them in a grid form on a white card base, then added a red rhinestone to the center reindeer, making that reindeer Rudolph.

Eek, I love it so much! I finished the card by die cutting one of the holiday "license plates" options from Sunday Drive with Santa, trimming out just the words, coloring them with a marker and adhering each letter to the card individually.

Spellbinders has many samples and a lot of inspiration for this entire collection on their website too. I love their attention to detail and the intricacy of their dies. It really makes for easy and beautiful card making! Thanks again, Spellbinders, for letting me share projects made with this whimsically awesome collection.
