Slimline Christmas Cards featuring Spellbinders’ Hex Kaleidoscope
Hello everyone! I love switching things up when I am card making. I get going with a medium like water colour for a few cards and then need to do something completely different! So I am on to die cutting … and who wouldn’t be inspired by Spellbinders’ Hex Kaleidoscope Slimline and Tile die sets. I am totally in love with the three piece layering tile dies included in each of these sets. Gorgeous! I made Christmas cards but the sentiments could be switched up to suit any occasion.
Hex Kaleidoscope Tile
The base panel was die cut using the perimeter die from the other set. The hexagon trio frame was die cut twice from white card stock; one frame was centred and adhered to the base panel, the other was trimmed so the frame could be extended on either end of the panel. The nesting diamond die was used to cut brushed silver card stock which were adhered to the panel. The hexagon frame die was also used to cut the silver paper for the rectangular pieces to inset between the hexagons. The tiles were layered as follows; base layer in silver, mid layer in blue and the top layer in white. The circle detail on the frame was embellished with silver confetti. The panel was mounted on foam and adhered to the brushed silver card stock for a narrow reveal. The card base measured 7 3/4” by 3 3/4”. The sentiment, from Spellbinders’ Mosaic Bracket Card Builder, was die cut in white card stock and stacked on foam.

The base panel was die cut using the perimeter die and the die cut panel were both cut from white card stock. The tile layers were die cut and layered as follows; base layer in brushed gold, mid layer in pink and the top layer in white. Adhesive was applied to the die cut panel and tiles using Xyron sticker makers. The panel was mounted on foam and adhered to a card base measuring 7 3/4” by 3 3/4”. The sentiment, from Spellbinders’ Silent Night Make A Scene, was die cut in pink and gold. The words were separated and the stacked slightly offset.
