Spellbinders | It’s a Christmas Season – Christmas Ornaments Mini Slimline Card. Video

Hello crafters! Welcome to the “It’s a Christmas Season Video Series for 2021”. I’ve had the “It’s a Christmas Season” series on my blog last year when I shared loads of Christmas card ideas. Christmas is my favorite Holiday and it is my favorite time of the year, and I wanted to make it even more special this year, so in the spur of the moment I decided to have a video series and share my Christmas 2021 cards with you in a video format.

I already have a couple of cards and videos planned and I’ll be sharing those through the rest of the year. And I hope you’ll join me!

CARD DETAILS

Last Spring I shared THIS mini slimline floral card and I got a lot of comments and great feedback, you guys seemed to really love this card and card design, and this card has been a favorite of mine ever since. I still have it on my desk and use it for inspiration. My today’s project is directly inspired by that card and you will see – it is very, very similar.

The layout of the card is pretty much identical to the floral card – I have a sentiment at the bottom of a mini slimline panel, sentiment is foiled and I also have pretty embellishments up at the top.

I started working on this card by foiling a sentiment at the bottom of a 3 1/4 x 6 1/4” Midnight Green cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. I foiled a sentiment from the new Spellbinders Gifts of Christmas Glimmer Sentiment set for 2021 and I foiled it in gold foil. It reads All Hearts Come Home for Christmas. It is a very sweet sentiment and kind of different from your traditional Merry Christmas.

Next, I created a bunch of little tiny ornaments for my card using 2 die sets from Spellbinders – the Holiday Decorations die set, that’s where the ornament is from, and the other set is Shopping Spree – that’s where the little flower and the leaves are from.

These ornaments are easy to make, but they do require quite a bit of die-cutting. I like to cut all of the pieces and all of the layers first, sort them in a little dish, and assemble a bunch of ornaments at once.

To assemble these ornaments you need to adhere the little ornament topper onto the ornament. I like to use my Bearly Art glue and a jewel picker tool to position the tiny topper on top. You have ornaments in 2 different shapes creating a nice variety for your card. And I tried alternating both shapes.

I also decorated some of the ornaments with little bows and the bows were cut using dies from yet another die set from Spellbinders – from the Open House Topiary set, that bow is simply gorgeous and it worked really well here to embellish these ornaments. Overall I pulled dies from 3 different sets and I mostly used little embellishment die cuts to dress up the ornaments for this card. I love the fact that Spellbinders dies come with all of the little accessory pieces helping you to really go all out and dress up your projects.

Now as for the colors, I used cardstock from Spellbinders, Simon, and Hero Arts – Red is Simon’s Schoolhouse Red, Green is Simon’s Green Apple, Blue is the Spellbinders Glacier, Pink is the Hero Arts Peony, pale yellow is the Spellbinders Alabaster. And I also used gold glitter cardstock from Simon.

I used foam adhesive squares for each of my ornaments and popped the ornaments up on the card. I also used Spellbinders gems to dress this card up and I used quite a lot of gems. I went with gold gems from the Gold Mix set.

I added this panel onto a white side folding card base and called this card done.

Have fun die cutting!

    1. Really Beautiful card!!! Yes please more holiday card videos!!

    1. I adore this card (and its predecessor). YES, YES, YES to a Christmas card series by you. You have a wonderful, unique ability for color, layout, and a flair for a new approach! Your videos have a very approachable style and are succinct, easy to follow and full of great tips. Thanks for another delight time!

    1. Lovely card. I checked out the die at SB and was surprised that it was so inexpensive. Seems great way to use up scraps. Would love more Christmas. Thank you.

    1. You had a card where you used the pink ornaments only where might I find it

    1. I love that you’ve decided to change it up on many of your cards and go with a much darker background. It certainly makes the centerpieces pop and the foiling looks beautiful on the dark card stock. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Very lovely card! Enjoy your Christmas videos…..also my favorite holiday!
