Hello and thank you for joining me here today for the Spellbinders Holiday Inspiration Blog Hop.

I have three projects to share with you which I created using dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Holiday Medley Collection.
First up is this slimline Christmas Card in a non-traditional colour combination of dark smokey grey and baby pink with gold and pearly accents. For this I used the Merry Filigee Card Builder Etched Dies SKU S5-464. I love how the Christmas sentiment is incorporated within the intricate circular die. This is something that features a lot in the Holiday Medley collection.
Here is a close up of the sentiment:-
Next up I have an A5 horizonal Christmas card and for this I used the Joy Crescent Card Builder Etched Dies.
I added pearl accents, a satin bow and some handcrafted poinsettia flowers which I created using Cinch and Go Poinsettia dies, together with some gold fir sprigs from the Amazing Paper Grace November 20 Die of the Month Set called the Pop Up 3D Vignette Poinsettia Sleigh.
The large backgound die which frames my card is from the Scallop Facade Frame Etched Dies set.
For my final project I decided to make a super easy little Christmas Angel. This could be used to decorate cards, boxes and bags and, of course, Chistmas Trees.
The intricate wings were made using the Joy Crescent Card Building Etched Dies. My angel is double sided, so it looks just as nice from behind as it does at the front.
I do have a video demonstration coming up tomorrow on my YouTube channel which shows you how to put one together.
Well I do hope you like my ideas for using dies from the Holiday Medley Collection. You arrived via the lovely Jenny Colacicco's blog. The next stop on the hop is Rosemary Dennis who has more inspiration for you using a selection of goodies from Spellbinders Holiday 2021 products.
