Christmas in July with Spellbinders’ Crossed Lines Cardfront

Updated: Aug 1, 2022

Hello everyone! For my final ‘Christmas in July’ post, I have a card featuring a beautiful hot foil plate by Spellbinders, Crossed Lines Cardfront. A wonderful backdrop for a botanical display! These silhouette die cuts are from a gorgeous set called Holiday Blooms.

Red hot foil was foiled on Pomegranate card stock for a tone on tone look using Crossed Lines Cardfront. One of the nesting dies from Essential Diamonds was used to create a cut out on the card front. The panel was trimmed to 4 1/8” by 5 3/8”. Black foam, cut to the same size as the card front, was die cut with the next largest diamond die … to ensure no foam is visible!

A panel of Bristol Smooth, the size of the card front, was ink blended with Distress Oxide Inks Festive Berries and Wilted Violet. The ink was applied just to the area that would be exposed through the diamond cut out.. The black foam was adhered to this panel and several pieces of foliage were cut from Holiday Blooms out of Onyx Card stock. A couple of the evergreen boughs and berry branches were adhered to the top and bottom of the diamond cut out on the foam and then the card front was mounted on top. The completed panel was mounted on a top folding, A2 sized, black card base.

A sentiment from Glitter Wishes was foiled in gold on a small ink blended panel using the same ink as the background. It was die cut with an accompanying strip die and mounted on foam. The sentiment was adhered to the bottom of the panel with a few silhouette die cuts tucked in to frame the bottom of the diamond window. The poinsettia die from Holiday Blooms was also die cut from this ink blended panel four times and stacked; offsetting each flower layer and finished off with a black floral centre die cut and confetti. It was adhered to one side of the top of the diamond with an evergreen bough. The card was embellished with small purple confetti topped with Nuvo Crystal Drops Morning Dew.
