A Fancy - Flourish Christmas card 51

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, August 3, 2010 @ 8:59 AM | , ,

Hi There! Now that CHA has taken place & Spellbinders™ has revealed their amazing Summer Release collection of new die templates & products, I can begin to share samples here on my blog :) If you are looking for additional inspiration be sure to visit the Spellbinders™ Gallery for MANY fabulous projects made by the entire DT!
This Christmas card features a few of those die templates included in the Summer Release Collection: S4-287 Fanciful Holiday & S4-291 Labels Fifteen. I started by inking up some images from the JustRite Stampers Hearts Come Home Set as I referred to the fun sketch from the JustRite Friday Challenge for inspiration.

If you like to layer & add dimension to your projects as much as I do, then I think you will appreciate how easy it is to use the JustRite images from the Hearts Come Home set with the Spellbinders™ Classics Squares LG & SM die templates.
Have you created with foil yet? So easy & the outcome is fabulous! Up close, you get a good look at the detail. All you have to do is cut/emboss the die template then lightly sand to reveal all that goodness :) Click here for a step-by-step tutorial that I previously shared.
Curious to know what new Spellbinders™ product (s) tickles your fancy? :) That's all I have to share - Thanks so much for looking! Have a great day :)


Supplies Used:

Spellbinders™ S4-287 Fanciful Holiday, S4-291 Labels Fifteen, S4-126 Classic Squares LG, S4-128 Classic Squares SM, Premium Craft Foil, GC-001 Grand Calibur

Stamps
