Alphabet Christmas Card

Spellbinders Alphabet Christmas Card  is something a little different for you to make this year to send to family and firends.

Having an Alphabet can help you to make some really pretty cards and the word can be any that you wish to add.

They help you to personalise any of your creations and just think how pleased the recipient would be to see some thing especially for them 

Children really love to see their name on something whether it's a card or another project that you have made for them.

Negative effect

There are many companies that create alphabet dies that you can use for this technique

But you need to make sure that the word you spell out is a reasonable size to make an impact on your card

And also that the word will fit into the space in your chosen card size

The die set I am using is from Spellbinders and it is called Donnas Alphas

It produces letters that are in plain script and clearly spell out the word for you with no fancy curlycue's on it.

The video will take you step by step on how to make this Alphabet Christmas Card for yourself and I hope you will experiment and have some fun using different colours and letters


You will be able to make two cards from cutting the words out just once as you are going to use the negative space in the card for one and the positive letters for another.

Keep the letters that you cut out and also cut the same word again from some double sided adhesive foam to give them some height and you will have a really lovely card to send out. 

Change the word and the stamped background and this would be suitable for any occasion

Positive effect
Negative and positive effect

For this card I have used the Font One from Spellbinders and although it is a smaller die set the words are still prominent 

The card on the left has been made into a Shaker Card and I have used some tiny silver stars for the shaker element

This is such a fun way to work with the alphabets that you may already have in your own crafting "Stash" and maybe you are looking for something a little different to do with them

Getting the most from any die set that you own has to be a bonus ... because we know they don't come cheap and they need to work for you in lots of other ways.

I will be adding other videos using this particular alphabet die set and so I hope you will join me again to see what else is on offer for you to try... and not just for Christmas either
