This kit comes with everything you need to make a slider card with a wreath that can be decorated for many different seasons/occasions. I chose to make a snowy Christmas wreath for my card. I created the wreath by first using the half ring die in the kit to cut two half rings out of kraft cardstock. I then glued those two pieces together to make a complete ring. Next I die cut a ton of leaves out of Midnight Green cardstock and a few of the snowflakes out of white glitter cardstock.

I laid all of the die cut leaves onto a craft sheet face up. I then used a paintbrush to splatter some Pearl Aqua Pigment paint onto the leaves. Once the paint was dry I glued all of the leaves and snowflakes onto the ring to make my wreath. I cut a circle out of some vellum and adhered that to the back of the wreath. For the sentiment I chose a stamp from the Tiny Words Christmas stamp set and stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black ink on kraft cardstock. I then cut the sentiment into a strip and adhered it to the vellum in the center of the wreath.

I die cut the front panel of the card out of some patterened paper from Honey Bee stamps. I made sure to use the insert die as well to cut the slider area on the card. This also adds score lines for folding to help move the slider. I cut the inside panel of the slider out of Midnight Green cardstock and glued the bottom edge of it to the bottom of the cut out section on the front panel. I then glued the entire thing to a kraft card base, making sure not to glue the slider area so that it is free to move.

To finish up this card I added some string to the top of the slider (the die cuts a hole for you) and I glued the wreath to the slider. When you pull the slider the wreath pops up on the card. I love this kind of card, I think it makes a beautiful decoration for the recipient!

Christmas Gift Card Holder Bag | Spellbinders Past Club Kits

Hey guys! Spellbinders is having a promotion right now on some of the past club kits so I thought I would use some of them to make this really cute Christmas gift card holder.

The kits that I am using are the For You Gift Card Holder (from April 2019) and the Festive Wreaths Slider Card (from June 2019) Click here to check out the promotion! Be sure to log in if you are a club member to see even bigger discounts! (Promo ends 10/20/19)

I cut the front and back of the holder out of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock and folded along the score lines. I then added double sided tape to the flaps that the folding created and stuck the two halves together. I cut the handle out of a lighter weight white cardstock and glued it on with liquid adhesive. I used tweezers to hold it in place while the glue dried.

Next I die cut the insert for the holder out of red cardstock and fan folded some white wax tissue paper. There is a die in the kit to cut paper to look like tissue paper, but I thought it would be fun to use real tissue paper. The insert has a little slot that you put the wax paper through and a flap that folds down to secure it (see video). I then die cut the slots for holding the gift card into the insert.

There is a cute little tag in the gift holder kit and I cut that out of red cardstock and glued a snowflake on it. The snowflake comes from the Festive Wreaths kit. I then tied the tag to the handle on the holder with red and white twine.

The Festive Wreaths kit comes with three little snowflake dies and I cut a bunch of them out of white and glitter white cardstock. I drew a circle onto the holder using a die as a template. I then used that circle as a guide for gluing down all the snowflakes.

For the sentiment I picked out a stamp from the Tiny Words Christmas stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I embossed it in white onto some slate cardstock, cut it down into a strip, and popped it up in the center of the wreath with foam tape. I glued a bunch of raindrop embellishments to the wreath to kind of look like ornaments. The last thing I did was go over the sentiment with my Wink of Stella glitter brush to get the project even more sparkle!

Thanksgiving Thank You Card | Spellbinders Small Die of the Month October 2019

Hello my friends! Today’s card features the Small Die of the Month kit from Spellbinders. This kit is wonderful for both Thanksgiving and Christmas cards!

6.jpg

First I die cut all of the pieces to create the woman and the pie. The dress of the woman is a great place to use some of the paper in your patterned paper stash! I glued them together using Gina K Designs Connect glue. I decided to have my woman holding a pie, but there are other options in the kit such as a tiny Christmas tree or a present.

7.jpg

For the background I stamped the Flannel Life background onto a piece of Peaches and Cream cardstock with Versamark ink. I stamped a sentiment onto the panel with Hazelnut Blend ink.

8.jpg

Next I popped the panel up onto a dark brown card base with foam tape. I also used foam tape to adhere the woman on the card off to the left side.

5.jpg

For the finishing touches I used a white gel pen to add dashed lines around the edge of the stamped panel.

Purple Pumpkin Card | Spellbinders Large Die of the Month October 2019

Hey crafty people! Today’s card features the October 2019 Large Die of the Month kit from Spellbinders.

2.jpg

I cut some of the leafy dies out of Fog and Summer Days cardstock. I then cut the pumpkin out of black cardstock and used colored pencils to give it some purple color. I also colored the stem brown.

3.jpg

I glued all of the leafy cuts onto some patterned paper and then popped up the pumpkin with foam tape. I then popped up the panel onto a dark brown card base. I placed the panel flush to the upper left corner, leaving some of the base showing on the bottom and right edges.

1.jpg

I picked out a sentiment from the Tiny Words stamp set and embossed it in white on brown cardstock. I cut it into a strip and popped it up next to the pumpkin.

4.jpg

For the final touches I used a brown Copic marker and added some dots around the leafy cuts. I then used Journey Glaze on the dots to give them some dimension and shine.

For my first card I cut a piece of the white cardstock to 4 x 5.25 and popped it up onto one of the white card bases. I picked out one of the memory cards from the kit and tied the red and white twine around it. I then popped that up on the card.

8.jpg

The kit comes with a bunch of die cut shapes so I grabbed a Christmas tree from them and added that to the memory card. I decided not to add a sentiment to this card, I really liked the clean look.

For this next card I took the striped foiled velum and but it to 4.25x5.5 and then adhered it to a card base. I grabbed the red piece of cardstock and cut it down to 3.75x5. I repeatedly stamped one of the sentiments from the stamp set with Versamark ink across the cardstock to make a subtle pattern.

5.jpg

I popped the red cardstock up on my card base and then added one of the Letters to Santa Embellishments to the card. The sentiment that I chose came from the die cut shapes included in the kit.

This last card has to be my favorite! I really love the way this one came out. I chose a piece of the patterned paper, cut it down, and popped it up on a card base. I then took two of the tags, tied some twine around the top of the white one, and glued them together. I added the tags to the center of the card with foam squares.

One of the dies in the kit is of a Christmas tree. I cut that die out of the black cardstock and glued the tree to the white tag. The “Joy” sentiment is a sticker from the Letters to Santa Embellishments.
