Hey friends! Today, I’m sharing my projects that I created using the Merry Everything Christmas kit from Spellbinders.
“The Merry Everything Christmas Kit is an ENORMOUS holiday kit that contains OVER 630 PIECES. This gorgeous traditional holiday themed kit can created 25+ Cards, 24+ Tags and so much more.”
You even get necessities, like card bases, envelopes, cardstock, double sized tape, and foam squares!
Here is what I created with the kits. (I still have more than plenty left over for lots more projects!)
I did a small unboxing, and filmed a process video for these cards on my YT channel.
I made a Pocket Page spread that would be perfect for December Daily / December Documented. There is a 3×4 card that is so cute, and it says “our elf” with a spot to the photo of you elf. I just had to use it along with the photo of my girls and Santa from last year. I used a few more 3×4 cards, a Santa die cut, a few phrase stickers, and a Letters to Santa embellishment.
For my first card, I decided to use the dies in the kit, along with my Spellbinders Platinum 6 die cutting machine, and create a little red bug car, with a bunch of presents piled on top.
I used one of the pattern papers in the 6×6 paper pad for the background. The sentiment is my favorite one from the stamp set. I also added a piece of the red and white twine to finish off my card.
For my next card, I created a frame for the cute little cat diecuts.
I trimmed down a piece of red cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4 inches. Next, I used a ruler and a pencil to mark out the placement of the squares. I made sure to leave enough space in the middle for my sentiment. I used a square die from the Nestabilities Classic Square dies to die cut the frame. I used another one of the stamps from the stamp set, and heat embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder. I popped up the frame with foam tape, and adhered it to a piece of pattern paper from the 6×6 paper pad. Next, I added the cats on with foam squares.
On my next card, I used a Santa diecut for my main embellishment.
For the background, I trimmed a piece of the blue cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4 in. I added a little bit of ink blending around the outer edges to add some interest. Then I sprinkled on some white ink to create falling snow. For my hilltop, I used the white glitter cardstock. I used a glittered chipboard sticker HoHoHo sentiment. and an epoxy star to finish off my layout.
For my next card, I used diecuts, cardstock, the leftover piece of woodgrain pattern paper from my first card, and a clear sticker sentiment. I did use lots of foam squares on this one to create dimension.
For the next few cards, I stuck to a black. white, and red color scheme.
I used a piece of partner paper for the background. I added a strip of the gold cardstock to ground the elements. I used a large circle diecut with an image of presents. I also added a ’tis the season” diecut sentiment. Then I filled the card with various red embellishments, like the red gems, glitter star, and peppermints.
For this next card, I used 2 of the premed tags as the focal point. I used the red and white twine on the tags.
I used red cardstock for the background, and I used a white gel pen to draw a sketchy frame around it. I also added a floral diecut, red gens, and a glittered cardstock sentiment.
For my last card, I made a simple candy cane card.
I used the candy cane pattern paper from the 6×6 pad for my background. I die cut a circle from the white glitter cardstock using my Spellbinders Nestabilities Circle dies. I used another one of the ’tis the season diecut sentiments as well as a candy cane diecut, and popped them up with the foam squares.
I really hope you like my projects, and are inspired to get crafty. These kits allow you to get as detailed or as simple as you like. Some of the cards took longer, like the car I created with the car dies, but others just took a few minutes, like the candy cane card.
