Spellbinders| Christmas In July...Joy

Hello, Crafty Friends!

Today, we are Celebrating Christmas in July with Spellbinders. This is a fabulous way to be inspired by an array of amazing designers and get you into the holiday spirit. My simple Joy card features Spellbinders Christmas Jasmine and Skinny Stripe Background hot foil stamp

To create this card, I foiled a black A2 card panel using matte silver foil and the Skinny Stripe Background hot foil stamp. I love the look of the silver foil against the crisp black cardstock. I then used a circle die to create a window for my shaker bits and "Joy" sentiment. However, the real star of this card is the Christmas Jasmine. If you have not seen the floral arrangement videos by Susan Tierney Cockburn, then you are in for a treat. This amazing designer shares her passion for all things floral and provides lovely tutorials on making paper florals come alive. involves special tools that help with providing veining for the leaves, and how to mold a paper flower using different ball styluses to create depth and texture to the paper petals. Once I learned the basics of paper floral design, it was time to play with these amazing dies to create 3-D flowers. I just love how they turned out. I completed the card with a few silver beads.

Thank you for joining me. I hope you have a chance to step into your craftroom and create something beautiful!

Happy Crafting,
