Spellbinders: Holiday!

Good morning!

I am over on the Spellbinders blog today to share some of the new Spellbinders Holiday 2019 Collection by Sharyn Sowell ! Hooray for having holiday cards made in August! ๐Ÿ™‚

First up, I have this sweet little winter card, using Shapeabilities Winter Friends Etched Dies, Sharyn Sowell Holiday 2019 Collection. You can find this product HERE.

Isn’t this just the sweetest little scene?! Awwwww.

I offset the silhouette images slightly, to create a little โ€œshadowโ€. You could make a bunch of these quick by simplifying this slightly. One layer of die cut. Patterned paper background. Done! ๐Ÿ™‚


Next , I have this colorful holiday thank you card. I donโ€™t generally mail handmade cards for the holidays anymore, but I do mail handmade thank you cards. I thought this card, made with the Shapeabilities Starry Forest Etched Dies, Sharyn Sowell Holiday 2019 Collection was fun in non holiday colors. This die set is HERE.

It’s quite a simple design in the end, but I think it’s effective and pops that tree die right up as the center of attention! ๐Ÿ™‚

Color blocking leads to endless combos! This sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

Lastly, I have this very simple cardโ€”absolutely perfect for mass production! This die, Shapeabilities Love Came Down Etched Dies, Sharyn Sowell Holiday 2019 Collection makes super quick work with one simple detailed die cut! You can find this die HERE.

The glitter paper really sparkles in person, but the photo seems to dull it a lot. Boo.

I scored the panel on the background for some interest, but you could easily skip this step.

Hopefully you enjoy the thought of getting ahead on your holiday cards too! Check out all the Spellbinders goodies with their links below.
