Christmas in July with Spellbinders’ Plaid Tidings Background

Copper, ivory and black … a classic colour combination featuring my favourite hot foil plate ever, Plaid Tidings Background. You may have noticed I have been using it a lot!!! You can never get too much of a good thing! So here it is again coupled with some sweet elements from Winter Welcome Sled.

Plaid Tidings Background was hot foiled on Alabaster card stock measuring 4 1/8” by 5 3/8” with copper hot foil. The centre of this panel and a black foam panel of the same size was cut with one of the nesting dies from Oval Essentials. Copper foil card stock was cut with the dot detail die. This die embosses an impression of the outer edge of an oval which I used as a guide to used to fussy cut the centre. The foil panel was adhered to the underside of the plaid panel and mounted on the black foam one. Black card stock, 4 1/4” by 5 /2”, was adhered to an A2 sized card base for an edge to edge fit and then the foam backed panel adhered to it.

Several evergreen boughs and branches from Winter Welcome Sled were die cut from Alabaster, Onyx and copper foil card stock. The evergreen boughs were adhered around the edge of the oval and the branches added on top. Some thin twine with a pretty copper thread running through it was adhered around the edge of the oval. The skates, also from Winter Welcome Sled, were adhered to the centre of the oval with foam squares. A copper bow cut using a die from the Parcel & Post Christmas Decorations completes this simple vignette.

The sentiment from Glitter Wishes was foiled with copper hot foil on black card stock and cut with the accompanying strip die. The strip was mounted on black foam and adhered below the oval across the greenery … which of course is not green! LOL! Tiny copper sequins were adhered to the branches and finished off with Nuvo Crystal Drops Morning Dew.
