A Snowy Sunday Drive with Santa

I was so excited when I received the Sunday Drive die set from Spellbinders in May and now I am happy to show off one of the new holiday add-on sets for the Sunday Drive collection on this clean and simple slimline card.

The die sets I found easy to use following the images on the package but recommend having a pair of tweezers handy to glue and place the tiny taillights, box-ribbon-bow, and reindeer antlers. I also recommend having a small container or bag to put your die cut pieces into as you cut them out. They are quite easy to lose on your workspace or get dropped onto the floor. (I am still finding lost antlers on my crafting table.)

All the pieces were cut from scraps in my stash. I had to use my embossing mat to get good definition on the bummer piece cut on silver matte cardstock.

This was my first attempt at foiling multiple times the Spellbinders Twinkle Lights foiling plate on one card. Lessons I learned: Be patient and let the foiling plate cool down so you can place it exactly where you want it for the second and third pass. Don’t foil directly onto your slimline card unless you want the snow embossing effect inside your card too. Foil onto a panel you can adhere later.

The card base is an 8 inch x 9 inch piece of heavy white cardstock scored and folded long ways in half.

Inside the card is a green foiled Christmas tree which was one of test pieces I had foiled previously on a die cut rectangle scrap from another project.

Finishing of the card by stamping its envelope with some hints as to what’s inside using a vintage Disney stamp set.

Supplies:

Stamps/Dies

Papers

Inks/Foils

  1. These cards are both so cute, but I especially love Sunday Drive. Wondering if you used adhesive sheets for the tiny detail pieces…I can see why you needed tweezers for placement. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such tiny little detail…you are definitely the queen of detail and patience! Keep ’em coming…love to see your creations!
