I wanted to create a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" Christmas card that would be relatively easy to mass produce and mail. I've simply stamped Santa on cream CS, die cut with Spellbinders' Lacey Squares, colored the leaves on his hat and added Stickles to the berries. Inking up the bottom edge only, I stamped the sentiment and postmark twice, die cutting each separately. The sentiment was threaded with 3/8" red velvet ribbon and through the green Lacey Square's corner loops. Lastly, I added dimensional tape to my postmark and attached it. For my card, I used the following products:
Paper: Die Cuts With a View's Green #1 CS; cream CS from stash
Embossing Folder: Provo Craft/Cuttlebug Winter Wonderland set
Stamp: Inkadinkado
Ink: Memento's Tuxedo Black
Dies: Spellbinders' Lacey Squares, Ribbon Tags Trio and Standard Circle
Embellishments: Copic Marker: YG63, E0000, E000 & R29; Stickles: Xmas Red; red velvet ribbon from stash

This is such a neat idea for the use of the new dies by Spellbinders. I'll probably try it soon.
