Holiday Cards with Spellbinders and First Edition. Day #1

This post is also available in Українською мовою

Hi everyone and welcome to a new mini series I’ll be doing in December called Holiday Cards with Spellbinders and First Edition. I plan to use Spellbinders dies and combine them with beautiful papers from First Edition to create elegant holiday card.

I love combining various Spellbinders dies with patterned papers from First Edition (First Edition is a UK brand from Trimcraft, they have gorgeous papers with various effects like foil, gloss, embossing etc). These products seem to be made for each other and always, always produce stunning results. Over then next few weeks I plan to share a few of the cards I’ve made using this product combo.
