Spellbinders Stitchmas Christmas

Spellbinders "Stitchmas Christmas" Stitched Ornament card.

Spellbinders Stitched Ornament Die (S4-1231)

Welcome back friends! I am excited to share a gorgeous stitched ornament die that Spellbinders just released as part of their Stitchmas Christmas line. I made an elegant Christmas Ornament Card in gold and spruce green. The stitching was easy and I spent a relaxing hour or so adding the gold thread details.

Elegant die cut and stitched Christmas Card in Green and Gold.

I started by cutting the ornament from Blue Spruce cardstock. Then I cut the ornament background, greenery and accents from Brush Gold Cardstock. Using Gold Floss, I stitched the embroidered details and then assembled my ornament. The background is a mat of Brush Gold Cardstock and a designer paper from the Cheerful Occasions pad. I love the variety and beauty of this pack!

Spellbinders Winter Garden Collection

Spellbinders Letterbox Die Kit (S4-1209) handmade card.

Letterbox Die Kit (S4-1209)

Christmas in July? For all of you ready to start working on your holiday cards, Spellbinders has some fresh new die sets that are part of their gorgeous new Winter Garden Collection by Susan Tierney-Cockburn. The Letter Box is so versatile….you can use the mailbox by itself….add Christamas gifts or letters….or turn it into a birthday card by changing the colors and sentiment. I added fun little details from two other Spellbinders kits.

To start this card, I ink blended the blue panel on 80 lb. card stock, which I think embosses more crisply. I then embossed the background for added interest. I die cut all my pieces, “aged” the white post with a distress crayon and added a few white accents to the mail box with a gel pen. I then assembled my card with glue and foam tape.

Products Used to Create This Card:
