Christmas came just a little bit early for me this year. The other day I received a great big box of happiness in the mail! My brand new Spellbinder's Grand Caliber! It is BIG! but oh so quiet and super easy to crank!
Since I needed to do my "Time with" post for Our Daily Bread Designs and my challenge card for the Papertake Weekly challenge, this weeks challenge is "Anything Goes", I decided that would be the perfect time to give the new machine a whirl.
I love that I can cut out several images at a time and that the machine is so easy to crank. The plate sandwiches are super easy to put together, each one is color coded and labeled. Now that I can cut out some of the jumbo Spellbinders, I will need to pick some up with my next order so that I can give those a try too!
I am absolutely thrilled to share this simple little card with you that I created. I chose the smaller ornament from the Our Daily Bread Designs Ornaments set and paired it up with the matching Spellbinders Heirloom Ornament dies and a verse from Christmas Blessing which I cut out using the Spellbinders Classic Ovals. The ornament is stamped in Versafine black, embossed with clear embossing powder then colored with Copic markers. I then added a touch of glimmer mist, which never shows well in the photograph but in real life is has a nice soft shimmer. I layered the colored ornament on a larger layer of Heirloom diecut then layered that on my current favorite Christmas paper; Basic Grey's Jovial.
