I’m delighted to present my newest collection for Sizzix, introduced this week at CHA Summer in Las Vegas. It’s a grand assortment of 25 dies, all inspired by a turn-of-the-century European country Christmas. I had so much fun designing this collection, and I think you’ll enjoy using them for holiday gift-giving, handmade cards, entertaining and decking the halls in style! Since it’s such a large collection, I’ll be presenting a preview of the highlights in three separate posts.
The Mini Correspondence set includes three tiny envelopes and card shapes that are reminiscent of Victorian calling cards. Measuring just 1.75" x 3”, they’re just the thing for personalizing gifts and holiday treats.
The Sleigh Favor Box is a wonderful little container for sweet treats at holiday place settings. It’s very easy to assemble, and includes the poinsettia embellishment and trim pieces. The Sleigh adds a festive touch to your holiday decor when combined with the coordinating reindeer, shown below.
This classic Reindeer is the perfect size for a gift tag, ornament, or an adorable garland. It also makes a beautiful focal point for your holiday greeting cards. The saddle and harness pieces are sweet details that make it easy to add color and pattern.
I’m really excited about the Country Cottage die because it’s so much fun to embellish and personalize! The shutters, shingles, portico, fireplace and base are all included. This tiny cottage measures just 4.5" x 3.5" x 3” and hinges open at the back to put a little (optional) battery light inside. Depending on the paper colors and embellishments, it can be transformed from a sweet cottage in a snowy European village to a spooky Halloween mansion!
The Ice Skate is really versatile and can be used as a folded greeting card or a single panel card. Since the decorative cartouche, trim piece and blade are all separate pieces included in the die, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to embellish and make it spectacular.
