Hello friends!! I’m popping in while my girls are taking a lunch break to share a couple of cards I created with Spellbinder’s new Large Die of the Month!!
This die set is incredible and very versatile! I created two cards, one fall themed and the other Christmas, but I believe with a few simple tweaks you could easily create Valentines, spring, or even summer themed cards as well!!
To create these cards I first scored two light gray panels at every 1/2″ to create the look of siding and then adhered them to the front of two A2 top-folding card bases. Next, I die cut all my columns and top out of white cardstock. I then die cut the doors, bottom/base, door mats, and window panes out of colored cardstock. I then adhered my door mats together and also adhered a scrap of light blue cardstock or cream cardstock to the backside of my doors.
Next I created a frosted window for my Christmas scene by trimming a piece of vellum to fit behind the window pane and then sprinkling white embossing powder over the vellum, then heat setting with a heat gun from behind so not to blow the embossing powder off. I then adhered the window pane on top of the vellum and then adhered it and my second window pane to the doors.
I then added foam tape to the back side of my door, columns, door frame top and bottom/base and then adhered them onto the front of my cards. Next, I adhered my door mats and then die cut the mail slot and door handle out of mirrored gold cardstock and then adhered to the doors. I then created two little envelopes out of white cardstock and popped them into the slot.
Next, I created my wreaths and garland. For the Christmas card, I die cut the wreath twice out of light green and dark green cardstock. I then adhered the light and dark green wreaths together to create 2 wreaths. I then cut one of the wreaths in half, then positioned the two halves over the frame of the door, trimmed off any excess and then adhere them as well as the intact wreath to my card front with foam tape. Next I created six poinsettias out of red cardstock and adhered them to my wreath and garland to complete my card.
For my fall card, I die cut four wreaths out of white cardstock. I then copic colored each one of the leaves in the wreathes with fall colors and then adhered two wreaths together to create two stacked wreaths. Next, I cut one of my stacked wreaths in half, trimmed off any excess, and then adhered them to the top of my door with foam tape. I also added a tail ends to my garland with the excess that I trimmed off from the halves. I then finished my card by adhering my second wreath to my door and adding a stacked “best” created from Kraft cardstock to my card front.
I hope you enjoyed my cards!! Thank you so much for stopping by!
