I am still working on a few more Christmas cards. Today I have a slimline card created using a Spellbinders Christmas border die set and Susan's Garden Poinsettia.
Using the Spellbinders Christmas Strip & Borders die set, a variety of dies in this set were used to create the pretty border. This die set originally sold for $40 and is on sale right now at Spellbinders for $10. I have it linked below. The borders were die cut using white card stock and layered over red cardstock. Some red flat-back pearls were added to the berries on the border and a yellow rhinestone added to the center of the die cut poinsettia in the design.
Susan's new Hemlock & Chickadee die set was used to die the hemlock branches. They were die cut using watercolor paper, colored with OLO markers and shaped using tools in Susan's Flower Tool Kit.
Susan's Poinsettia die set was used to create the poinsettia. Sorry but I couldn't find this die set to link. The poinsettia and leaves were die cut using Susan's Specialty Cardstock, colored using OLO markers and shaped using her Flower Tool Kit. I used Beacon Kids Glue to assemble. In the center I used small Styrofoam balls colored yellow green and on top added a red Prill. A tiny bit of yellow pollen was added.
I used Susan's new Snow Garden Sentiment set to red foil the Merry Christmas and die cut it using the matching die in this set. It was attached using dimensional tape.
For additional embellishment, I added a few tiny rhinestones around the border and additional red flat pearls. Along the top, I added a narrow strip of red mirror cardstock.
This card can be mailed in a slimline acrylic box purchased from clearbags.com.
