Hello, crafty friends! I’m back today with a set of simple Christmas cards featuring the gorgeous A Charming Christmas collection by Becca Feeken for Spellbinders. Two are the die sets I focused on: Holly Jolly Christmas, and Charming Christmas Words. I love the versatility of these dies, and the ability to combine them for a very festive look.
For the first card, I used the Charming Christmas Words to create the background for my card panel. This is a set of six dies with the phrase HO HO HO, FA LA LA and NOEL in a border format with an inner word pattern and an outline for each. I alternated the three word strips, trying to maintain the same distance between them. I didn’t want to measure everything, so I just eye-balled it.
For the center, I used a die cut from the lovely Merry Days collection by Crate Paper. To make the wreath look more finished and “full”, I die cut several holly leaves from the Holly Jolly Christmas set and arranged them around it.
The second card is a bit more layered. I mostly used the Holly Jolly Christmas die set, which includes nine beautiful dies: three frames in different sizes, a large intricate inset design, as well as a small one, a Merry Christmas sentiment, and the holly designs I used on the previous card.
I started by adding stitched detailing to an A2 card panel with one the outline dies from the Charming Christmas Words set. I then did the same with the second layer; this time I used a different border for variety. I also used the FA LA LA word die to add a fun and festive element. The small inset design created the perfect window to “display” presents, holly leaves, and a holiday sentiment. Nuvo Crystal Drops in Red Berry finished the card.
These die sets are a must have for your holiday paper crafting needs. I hope you enjoyed my cards, and would love to hear what you think!
Have a lovely day!
