Hey, friends! Welcome back to my blog! I am sharing a fun and festive die set from Spellbinders! This set allows you to create interactive slider cards that you can change up for the seasons or special occasions. There are 21 dies in this set, including seasonal dies and dies for general crafting.
Since its Autumn, which is my favorite season, I decided to create two Autumn inspired cards. One is the traditional warm colors of Fall, and the other which I created on my video tutorial is more of a neutral Autumn palette.
For my first card, I cut all the pieces to create my card base using the die set. I used a kraft cardstock for the front, and stamped on this lovely Autum background using a Fun Stampers Journey stamp, COLOR ME FALL. I filled in a few areas of this background stamp with a white gel pen, but for the most part, I left it uncolored.
I then die cut a large number of the Fall leaves, and ink blended them with some Distress Inks in Fall colors. I created my wreath with these leaves, as well as some of the cute acorns that I cut from glitter cardstock.
The sentiment in the middle is stamped and embossed on some vellum with gold embossing powder. The sentiment stamp is from the Fun Stampers Journey set, THANKFUL FRIENDS.
For my neutral Fall palette, I channeled my inner Joanna Gaines. I went with a soft, farmhouse style look by ink blending the buffalo check onto a white card base using a grey Distress Ink. Then, I used a soft green cardstock, SLATE, from Brutus Monroe.
I also used the Slate cardstock to die cut all the leaves for the simple green wreath. I added just a small bit of twine to the top of the wreath, tied in a bow.
The sentiment was stamped in black ink, and then I embossed some clear embossing powder over the top. I die cut the sentiment out using the coordinating die from the stamp and die set, THANKFUL FRIENDS.
These interactive slider cards are so much fun to create, and beautiful to display on your shelf! I love that this set has so many festive dies included that you can change up the wreath for birthdays, holidays, and seasons!
