Final Cards for Spellbinders July Christmas Release!

 Hello!  I'm back with the final three cards I made using products from the Spellbinders July release.   This time I'm sharing two cards from the new Slimline collection and one card from the fun Be Merry collection.  (Affiliate links used in the body of this post where possible.  By using my links I can earn a small commission at no cost to you.  Thank you for your support.)

This card was made with stamps from the Home for Christmas stamp set from the Be Merry collection.  I used a tool I have to make a wreath using one of the small images from the set.  Once I was finished stamping my wreath  I die cut it with an old Spellbinders circle die, a mat from a dark red cardstock and then the scalloped circle (also an old Spellbinders die) from dark green cardstock.   Some I used red Pico embellisher from Imagine Crafts for the berries.  I die cut more dark red cardstock with the largest Essentials rectangle and then embossed the sentiment from the set in gold.    

This card was made with the Circle Kaleidoscope Slimline etched dies from the Slimline collection.  This set contains three dies to create the circle kaleidoscopes, a die to cut a panel, as well as an insert.  I die cut the white piece using the insert and the main panel.  I then die cut the main panel from silver metallic cardstock and adhered the white piece on top.  I then die cut the kaleidoscopes from Teal Topaz, Lagoon and Blue Spruce cardstocks.  All three are from Spellbinders.  I adhered all the pieces together and adhered them to the main panel.  I then die cut the little ornament toppers that come in the set from silver cardstock and adhered them.  I finished off my ornaments with little bows.  The sentiment is from the Mini Christmas Sentiments Glimmer set and was foiled in silver.    Going to add this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes.

My final card was created using the Kaleidoscope Argyle etched dies from the Slimline collection.  To create a slimline card you die cut the piece you see on my card front twice.  Obviously I only die cut it once and used that for an A2 sized card.  That piece was die cut from a pale teal glitter cardstock and adhered to a white rectangle die cut with the Essentials rectangle dies.  I created the diamond shape kaleidoscope pieces from white, Waterfall and Teal Topaz cardstock.  I cut one of the diamonds in half and adhered them as you see.  I finished off the card by adding the little red glitter dots (there is a die for that in the set) and the foiled sentiment.   

I hope you have enjoyed seeing all my Christmas cards.  I will be back later this month with more projects using new Spellbinders products that will be available on August 20th so stay tuned!  Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day!
