Sneak Peek: Spellbinders Summer Spectacular Day 6

Approximate Die Templates Sizes:
Oval Tag: 4 1/8 x 1 ½" (Insert: 1 ¾ x 1 1/8")

Rectangle Tag LG: 4 1/8 x 7/8" (Insert: 2 ½ x ½")

The project that I'm presenting, is a Christmas gift set that consists of a CD case with a matching card. Below you can find the step-by-step instructions on how to recreate the card.

Begin by embossing a piece of vellum cardstock, with the Winter Wonders M-Bossabilities™.



Trim the vellum cardstock to 12.5 x 12.5 cm (4.9 x 4.9 in), keeping all of the bottom scene. Sponge carefully with Color Box Whisper Grey ink. Pressing the ink pad too much against the vellum will cause the ink smudge the non-embossed areas. You will want to lighten the embossed parts only.



Mat the vellum first with Teal cardstock, then with Black cardstock. Sew around the edges. Don't mind the nasty fold that was created by sewing, this part will be covered with a label.



You can now create your card base from white cardstock. By trimming it to 14 x 28 cm (5.5 x 11 in), you're left with just enough border around the panel, and you only have to trim on one side, because the cardstock length is just right.
After you cut it, you can score the card and set it aside.



Now we can proceed to the label! Cut and emboss the oval/scalloped oval, and sponge with an aqua ink of your choice. I used Versa Magic Sea Breeze.



Assemble the oval by adhering the pieces together. Stamp the snowflakes with teal ink (I used Versa Magic Turquoise Gem) and sentiment with Wicked Black ink as shown. You don't have to stamp in the immediate left and right corners, these parts will be covered.



Die cut and emboss the tag from Fancy Framed Tags One, using the insert so that you're cutting out the "window" too. Sponge through the die with aqua ink, like you did with the ovals.



Adhere 3D Foam Squares to the back, and attach the tag to the oval as shown.



You can now tie the ribbon across the panel, and attach the label over it, using foam tape. Once that's done, you can adhere your panel to the card base.



Die cut/emboss/sponge another tag from Fancy Framed Tags One, this time without using the insert. Stamp the sentiment and attach the tag to the bottom of the card.



Lastly it's time for the finishing touches, like adding some Liquid Pearls in Pewter to the label and tag. You can also use pearls or rhinestones.





Voila! We got ourselves a nice Christmas card :)
The matching CD holder is meant to hold a recorded Christmas message (perhaps from the kids taking center stage??) that you can then send to the family that lives far away. You can also put a CD with your favourite Christmas carols in.



This time I embossed the Winter Wonders M-Bossabilities on white cardstock, and sponged it carefully with aqua ink. The embossing folder happens to be just the right size for the holder, so all I needed to do is take an A2 card, emboss it with the two different patterns, trim slightly and fold in the middle.
