Elegant Foiled Christmas Cards | Christmas Foiled Basics Collection by Yana Smakula | Spellbinders


Hello Friends!

I am so excited to have been a guest over on the Spellbinders Blog last week. In case you missed it over there, I am posting my cards again here today.

My cards feature the Christmas Foiled Basics Collection by Yana Smakula. These Foil Plates and Dies are perfect for creating your own elegant handmade Christmas cards that will wow your friends and family for many years to come.

CARD DETAILS

This first card I created is a very simple, yet elegant Happy Holiday card.  I began this card by using the Christmas Foliage Background Plate to foil and emboss the red cardstock background with Polished Brass Glimmer Foil.

I then foiled the circle in the center using the circle plate from the Christmas Foliage Circle Border set.

On white cardstock, I foiled and die-cut pieces from the Christmas Foliage Circle Border, the Christmas Organic Foliage, and Yana's Christmas Sentiments set to create the sentiment in the center and to add the pop of white to the card. To the flowers, I used a Red Copic Marker to color the centers in.

I then finished off this beauty by adding drops of white Nuvo Crystal Drops.

This next card may be my favorite!

I began this card by creating the background. I used the Polished Brass Glimmer Foil to repeat foil the entire panel using the snowfall plate from the Glimmer Winter Village. To add extra detail, I used a gold foiled washi tape from my stash to create a present-like design.

For the sentiment on this "present", I first die cut the circle using the Christmas Foliage Circle Border Die. Since the die is not a complete circle I just did some partial die-cutting of the circle stopping before the foliage part, then flipped the die, lined it up with the cut already made by the die, and then ran it through the die-cut machine again to cut the bottom of the circle.

On the circle, I lined up and foiled the "Merry Christmas from all of us" using plates from Yana's Christmas Sentiments. Right behind the circle die, I glued 3 pieces that I had foiled, cut and pieced in the shape of a wreath using plates and dies from the Christmas Foliage Circle Border set.

Who doesn't love a shaker card!?

This next card I started by creating die cutting the circle in the center using the partial die cutting technique I mentioned above in the previous card, only this time I am using the negative of the die.

The card front was then foiled with:

Inside the shaker, I had foiled the scene using a plate from the Glimmer Winter Village and 2020 which comes from Yana's Christmas Sentiment Set.

The shaker elements I used are from Studio Katia and the red details were done in Red Berry Nuvo Drops.

This last nontraditional card was also fun to create.

I used both the scene plates from the Glimmer Winter Village set that I foiled and embossed onto separate black cardstock panels using the Skybright Glimmer Foil. I then fussy cut the top parts of the scenes off. 

Next, I Silver foiled the Season's Greetings from Yana's Christmas Sentiments onto a light blue piece of cardstock. I then added snow using the falling snow plate from the Glimmer Winter Village on the top half of the blue panel.

On the bottom of the black scene panel, I also Silver Foiled the sentiment "Our Home to Yours" again from Yana's Christmas Sentiment set.

To assemble this card, I just added foam tape between each layer and then finished it off by adding some more snow details using the White Crystal Nuvo Drops.

I had so much fun creating these cards for you today and I hope I have inspired you to add some Glimmer Foil Christmas Elements into your Holiday Cards this year.

Thank you for stopping by and until next time... Happy Crafting 👋
