Spellbinders Invitation ~ Christmas Traditions~ Through The Woods

Is it too early to say that Christmas is around the corner?  Let the Christmas Traditions release from Spellbinders help you get a jump start on your holiday card making needs.  

Today's featured set is called Through The Woods and it's as sweet as it is nostalgic.

Nest all 12 thin metal dies to create a fun layered Christmas tree scene in an ornament arrangement. I used the Forevergreen Embossing Folder in the background and added papers from the Winter Wishes 6x6 paper pack.  The flowers are from the September Small Die of the Month.  

Use the scene dies themselves for a great focal accent.  For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock using the largest Nestabilities Deckled Rectangle and added some DOX ink to the inside edges, while it was still in the die.  

I stamped the sentiment using Christmas Time Sentiments, and built the scene using the detailed dies from Through The Woods.  I added more flowers from the September Small Die of the Month.  This is a great way to extend the use of your dies.

The Christmas Traditions Collection is timeless in style.  It's a beautiful collection that you must check out!  

Thanks for stopping by!

Awwwwww...two FABULOUS cards Birgit! I love the whole little scene in the ornament! I have a Spellbinders truck/Christmas tree set, but it's a little larger and wouldn't fit in an ornament, and now I'm kinda bummed as I really love the look! Love the Evergreen embossed background too...thanks for reminding me that I have that and should use it!! Your 2nd card where you created the scene without the ornament is just as pretty and love the truck in the blue!! Great cards and YAY for 2 more for the Christmas stash!! Hugs. :0)

Oh Birgit, these are fabulous! I love both of the cards, can't pick a favorite, but placing the truck in an ornament is pretty darn clever! I love these and will have to check out these links! Thanks for the inspiration! Heart Hugs, Col

Love these, I always like the trees in the back of the truck. Like the framing on both of them and their sentiments! Great textured backgrounds too, love how you put them all together!
