Hey everyone! I’m super excited to be sharing that I’m guest designing for Spellbinders and their amazing Sealed Collection! If you haven’t tried making your own wax seals, I can’t recommend it enough! Every video I’ve watched and blog I’ve read touts how addicting and fun they are to create. Well, I’m here to confirm that is absolutely true! I have been making bunches of them. It’s so fun to try different colors of wax, mixing and matching, all the things!
I created a trio of cards today following about the same layout but with different backgrounds and extras. I hope you like them and find some inspiration to give this a try!
I started simple by die cutting a few of the Sealed Squiggles from different colors and the Sealed Sprigs too. I mixed and matched berry colors and adhered everything together. Then I started separating them into groups to create cards. I played off the gold glitter paper in the berries to cut the Sealed Twine from as well.
I kept the background simple with some ink blending in an ombre and used the lighter of the inks to stamp a sentiment using Mini Christmas Greetings stamp and die set. I used liquid glue to adhere everything together and topped the twine off with my favorite Christmas Truck wax seal and a mixture of red and gold wax.
Next, using all the same products, I stepped the background up a little by hot foiling the Layered Geometric Diamond plate on dark blue cardstock using Prism hot foil. I cut the foiled background down with a layered rectangle die, adhered all of my elements and popped the panel up with foam tape on a white card base.
For my last card share today, I hot foiled the same background but this time I did it on white cardstock and used the incredible layering stencil set that coordinates to fill in the openings and create a stunning background, full of interest and texture. This card is assembled the same as the one previous with a little dimension adding to the mix too.
I hope you enjoyed these projects and I would really love to know if you’ve jumped in with both feet on wax seal making as well! It’s so much fun. I’ve also started adding them to the back of envelopes too!
