3 Cards, 1 Treat Box | Spellbinders November Large Die Kit

Hi-ya,

Today I’ve got some cards and a treat box to share with you that I made using the Spellbinders November Large Die Kit. I’m absolutely loving these kits – so much fun and an amazing way to build my die stash. I really can’t say enough about how great of a deal I think this is, the amount of items you get for the price is astounding. Here is the video of what I came up with:

Here are some still shots of the finished cards and box:

1

Simple and clean – my favorite kind of cards. I LOVE that warm wishes sentiment, it’s such a pretty script.

1 inside

Again I’m using the Mama Elephant Merry Greetings and Jingle Greetings stamp sets.

1 close2

This card is my favorite – I love the shape of those tags, they make such a pretty pattern.

2 inside

I used some green ink for the sentiment to echo the green from the front and finished off this inside panel with a thin stripe of the pink paper.

2 close3

What a fun shaker to make! I don’t have a lot of dies that have these solid shapes and the inserts to match, so it’s new to me to use the insert and get so much detail on a cut-out window.

3 inside

You’re going to see these sentiment stamp sets a lot this season!

3 closetree box

These boxes are really cute and easy to put together – I hope my instructions were at least a little helpful.

Here you can see the details of how I cut out off/around that outside red border.

tree box back

These would make a great advent calendar and I’m planning to make some as some favor boxes for each place setting at our family Christmas dinner this year.

The detail of all those tiny dots around the border is really pretty. If any get stuck, you can use a needle tip to poke them out.

As always thanks for stopping by to check out my work – I hope I was able to give you some inspiration for your own holiday merry making! xoxo, Sarah

Today is also the beginning of my 12 Days of Christmas Series…I’m working with some of the Pebbles Merry Merry line. I though this set was absolutely adorable! You can check out the video here:

Here are some close ups of the finished cards:

1 front

I LOOOVE this mason jar sticker! I always find that with the sticker/ephemera sets I find one or two things I want about 10 copies of.

1 close up

Those iridescent snowflakes are definitely one of my favorite buys this year. That jar is jam packed and will last for quite a while.

1 inside

A perfect sentiment to go with a snow-filled shaker window.

2 front

Over the river and through the woods…I’m still singing it in my head.

2 close up

The snowy windows on the car are a great touch – I hope you can see that accent, a bunch of these stickers have a beautiful, sparkly glitter texture added to them.

2 inside

Year after year I go back to these Mama Elephant sentiments – they are fantastic, I think they go with just about any type of card you want to make.

3 front

#3 is for sure my favorite. These elves – too cute for words.

3 close up

Don’t be afraid to cut into ephemera to alter it if it’s not exactly what you need. I often cut into stamps to change sentiments and then totally forget about it with embellishments.

3 inside

I’ve used my trusty SSS Envelope Liner die to cut out some additional papers from this pack to give those envelopes a little something special.

4 front

I love the home-spunny look of this card. I think it would be just perfect to add to a plate of cookies you’re giving to the neighbors.

4 close up

Do you like gingerbread cookies? We make them every year and I always think they smell so good, but I don’t really like the taste of them.

4 inside

Could there be a more perfect liner for that envelope?

5 fronrt

Super simple, just really easy and to the point.

5 close up

That little bough of flowers at the bottom of the globe is really cute. I kept looking for an extra piece of ephemera that I could pop up there but there were no small flowers, so I went with the holly sticker instead. I still might go back and add some nuvo drops, because I never know when to stop 🙂

5 inside

That blue floral paper – so gorgeous!

6 front

Again that blue paper…ahh. I really love the mix of adding that pink chart too. It’s really different, but I think it works.

6 close up

I’ve been doubling up jute for bows on a lot of my recent cards. I like the look of the separate strands.

6 inside

How great is that unexpected pop of icy blue?

 

Thanks for stopping by today to check out my cards. xoxo, Sarah
