Captivating card ideas with the Sara Signature Enchanted Christmas range

Crafter's Companion – 20/08/19

We’ve absolutely loved seeing all of your Christmas cardmaking projects, but we’re about to show you some magical inspiration that’s set to transform your creations! Hear the crunch of snow beneath your feet, feel the bite of the chilly winter wind and see the fairies dance across the frozen leaves with the Sara Signature Enchanted Christmas Collection. With a cool blue, purple and black colour palette, and mystical woodland and moonlight imagery, this is the perfect range if you want to add a unique and fantasy-inspired look to your Christmas creations.

We’ve put together this selection of photos and suggestions on how to put your Enchanted Christmas purchases to good use! It’s absolutely perfect for people who want to put a unique spin on their seasonal makings.

We absolutely love the way that this card has used the Glistening Branches Foil Stamp Dies on the edges to give the impression of the moon peeking through the edges. They contrast beautifully against the dark blue against the sky! We also love the tri-fold design – it just adds a little extra something.

If the fairies and forest scenes are a little too ‘out there’ for you, try adding a touch of traditional Christmas with the reindeer elements. The card on the left features a sparkling stamped with the Simply Stags set. It just looks so beautiful leaping through the trees! The card on the right features a proud stag that is slightly raised to produce a shadow effect. It was die-cut with the Arctic Deer die!

Create a beautiful aperture with a dome card! There are so many images that can be used to fill the space behind the open window, but this particular card features a beautiful crescent moon with a fairy perched on the edge. This has been created with the Magical Moonlight Stamp & Die – doesn’t it look beautiful? You could even add some dainty stars on with the Spectrum Noir Metallic Ink for an even more mystical look.

If you’re looking for more of a unique aperture, give the Glistening Glacier die a go. It’s been used in the image above as a window through to the forest scene behind, taking advantage of the space in the centre and the swirling edges for details. You can even embellish it further with extra fairies and sentiments!

If colour is your thing, no matter what time of the year, you’ll love the card above! With splashes of blue, purple and yellow, it’s a colourful dream come true! The card has also been embossed with the Sparkling Snowfall Embossing Folder, giving it a really interesting texture that will catch anyone’s eyes.

Finally, one of our favourite dies from the collection is the Winter Wreath set, which features everything you need to make an icy wreath. Just look at the stunning colour scheme above! The pale green, black and blue of the central wreath ties in so beautifully with the frame of the card! The completed wreath can be used across a range of projects – cards, scrapbook projects, tags and more, so it’s a highly versatile set for your collection.

We hope that this post has sparked a little bit of inspiration for your Christmas card projects and we just can’t wait to see what you come up with! Make sure you share photos of your creations with us on FacebookTwitter or Instagram using the hashtag #crafterscompanion.
