Spellbinder Christmas


  
Welcome to the Spellbinders and Product Partners Holiday Blog Hop.

We are so excited to have you join us!


Today Spellbinders is hopping with Stampendous!


Spellbinders has so many fabulous dies to choose from but my favorite and most loved dies are their label dies!  For today's card I used Labels 39-Decorative Elements Nestabilities Dies and an adorable House-Mouse Designs® image, Finishing Touch. 


To create this card start with a 12" x 6" piece of Kraft Cardstock.
Score the cardstock at 3" and 6".


Here is a photo that shows how it looks when folded on the score lines.


Adhere patterned paper pieces to the front of the card.
These pieces are 2 3/4" x 5 3/4" each.


Use the largest Label 39 die to die cut a red panel of cardstock.
Adhere the bottom part of the die cut panel to the bottom part of the card base so that the top is free to pop up when folded as shown.


For the inside of the card adhere a 5 1/4" x 2 1/4" panel of patterned paper to a 5 1/2" x 2 1/2" panel of red cardstock.
Tie twine around the panel and then adhere to the lower inside part of the card with Scrapbook-Adhesive 3D Foam Squares.


Here's how the card will look at this point!


Use the third largest Label 39 die to die cut a white label panel.
Stamp the Finishing Touch image on the panel and color with Copic Markers before adhering to the card.
Die Cut a smaller Label 39 label out of white card stock and stamp with sentiment and hearts from Life Words Perfectly Clear Stamp Set.
Adhere to the inside panel with Scrapbook-Adhesives 3D Foam Squares.


Here's how the card looks when it is folded flat and ready to mail.
