Christmas Ornaments Card | Embossing with Spellbinders Dies

There are only 60 days until Christmas! Are you ready? I've already begun my Christmas card crafting and today I'm sharing a Christmas Ornaments Card I created using some fabulous supplies from Spellbinders and Scrapbook.com.

Christmas ornaments have always held a special place in my heart. Since I was a born, I've collected a new ornament every year to add to the Christmas tree. And yes, I have quite the collection now! With this in mind, I was immediately drawn to the gorgeous Gilded Ornaments Die by Spellbinders.

To create this card, I began by die cutting several circles from white cardstock using the circle die included in this set.

I knew I wanted to do something different with the dies, so I decided to try embossing. Following the instructions on the machine I layered the various plates to emboss with dies. To ensure proper alignment, I placed the dies in the center of the white die cut circles and used temporary adhesive to hold them in place.

I then ran everything through the Platinum 6 and out popped these gorgeous embossed circles.

Next, I added some ink to the ornaments to give them a bit of color and to bring out the embossed details. You could also do this embossing technique with colored cardstock for a bolder design.

The background on this card was created using the Spellbinders Circles and Diamonds Embossing Folder. I also inked the edges of this to again bring out some of the embossed details.

Before adding the ornaments to the card front, I added the ornament hanger which I die cut from gold foiled cardstock. The final touch was some gold cord for "hanging" them and a fun little bow.

Embossing with dies has now become one of my favorite new techniques thanks to the amazing Spellbinders Platinum 6 Embossing and Die Cutting machine. 

Spellbinders and Scrapbook.com were kind enough to send me a Platinum 6, Tool N One and a couple of dies to create with and I recently shared a Halloween Witch Card I created using the Witch On A Broom Die. I want to thank Spellbinders and Scrapbook.com for this fun opportunity and for introducing me to my new favorite manual die cutting machine!
