Spellbinders Open House Collection

 Hello!  I'm back with several more Christmas cards that I made with products from the new Spellbinders release.  These cards are from the Open House collection.  

For this card I used the Open House Door Base etched die set and sentiments from the Mini Christmas Sentiment Strips Glimmer hot foil and die set.   The main panel was die cut with the largest Essentials rectangle die and then I did some scoring of the panel to create the look of siding.  Honestly, it is really hard to see the scoring in the photo. :(  The door was die cut from dark blue cardstock and the windows, door handle, mail slot and lintel from Glacier cardstock.  I also used the flower and foliage dies from the set to create my door swag and the little swags on the windows.  Some light yellow cardstock was die cut with the solid window dies and adhered them behind the window frames.  I then adhered all the pieces to the front of my card and finished with the sentiments that I foiled in silver.   Really like how this card turned out!  Going to add it to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes. 

This second card was created with the Open House Topiary etched die set and a sentiment from the Mini Christmas Sentiment Strips hot foil plates and dies that was foiled with red foil.  I used two Essentials rectangles dies to die cut some older Christmas patterned paper.   I die cut all the pieces for the topiary from various cardstocks and glitter cardstock and then adhered all the pieces together.   I adhered my finished topiary to the striped patterned paper rectangle along with the sentiment.   The polka dot paper was adhered to a kraft cardstock base and then I popped up the smaller panel.  I think it is nice to see how you can use dies that are designed to work with other dies in a separate way and still create a wonderful design. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day!
