Christmas In July

Anyone started Christmas crafting yet?
I love to Christmas craft and I thought if I made at least one card a week then I would be ahead come the festive month.  I also challenged myself this week to make a Christmas card using a none Christmas die set.

So this week my Spellblogger post with Spellbinders is to show you that you can create a card for Christmas using the lovely Die D-Lites Springtime Set.
I die cut the bird house and little bird from the set first and added a little glitter to look like freshly fallen snow. 

I then created my background using 3 different coloured inks as I wanted to create a magical snowy scene.  I then stamped the tree in black and added more glitter.

To create the snow banks I just tore some paper and added glitter to the ripped edge and used foam pads to add a bit of dimension.  I then finished with a stamped greeting,

The sketch for the card was a previous challenge from over at Freshly Made Sketches.  I didn't get to play as I was away on our family holiday for this one.
I love a die set that has a multitude of uses.
Please stop by the Spellbinders website for more details about the die set I have used.
Also check out the Coming Soon page for more fabulous dies from Spellbinders that will be available to buy in August, September and October.
