Merry & Bright for Any Time of the Year with Spellbinders

Saturday, October 28, 2023

Don't you love it when a holiday set can really be used any time of year? I was gifted a couple items from the Spellbinders Merry & Bright Collection and I used them with shades of brown, grey and pink to create a "Hello" card. I started with adding some Distress Ink to the lower corner half of cream cardstock and embossed it with the new Peppermint Stripes Embossing Folder. This piece adheres directly to an A2 card base and I also used a nested A2 die to cut a piece of light brown cardstock.

Next I die cut a BUNCH of different elemnts from the Petite Blooms and Sentiments dies in cream, grey, dark brown and pink cardstock. I layered the pieces together and glued them randomly to the light brown rectangle. Once everything was dry, I trimmed off any of the die cut pieces that extended past the panel and even glued some of the excess to open parts of the panel. I popped this panel up to my card base with foam adhesive.

For final touches, I die cut my sentiment banner out of cream cardstock and layered a dark brown banner behind it so the letters are easier to read. This was popped up on my card with foam adhesive as well. I also used some Copper Glitter Pops of Color around the card background to fill in open spaces and to add some shine! I also added a little bit to the center of my pink flowers. I hope this card brings you inspiration today - especially to use Christmas themed products for any time of year!
