Spellbinders | Tinsel Time

Hello there, today I have two cards to share with you using the new Tinsel Time Collection from Spellbinders. My cards today focus on two new die sets - Dancin' St. Nick and Dancin' Deer. They both have legs that move so they look like they are dancing! So fun! 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

When the legs are die cut for the characters, they have a hole in them at the top. All you need to do is add a foam dot inside of the leg piece and then adhere that down on your card (adding no adhesive to the rest of the legs). The legs then move side to side. I did do that on these cards but in photos, it is not that easy to show! They look great just adhered down flat too. So nice that there are options. 

My first card uses the Spellbinders Dancin' St. Nick Etched Dies. I die cut him from Spellbinders Cardstock - Snowdrift, Alabaster, Phone Booth and Onyx

I die cut the belt buckle from Spellbinders Brushed Gold Cardstock and the fur trimming from Hero Arts Glitter Paper Basics (white). The pieces were all assembled and adhered using Bearly Art Glue

There are different items that Santa can hold. I chose the list, which I die cut from Spellbinders Silver Fox Cardstock and the present/gift, which I die cut from Spellbinders Brushed Gold, Fern and Rainforest Cardstock. There are different hand/glove options you can add, depending on if he is holding something or not. 

I ran a panel of white cardstock through my Platinum 6 using the Spellbinders Dazzling Dots Embossing Folder. It was adhered to a US A2 sized white card base with thin foam tape. 

Santa was adhered on top, adding thin foam tape to the top half of his body and a piece to hold the top of his legs in place. To embellish his hat, I die cut holly leaves from the Spellbinders Festive Noel Etched Dies set and added a Spellbinders Red Mix Color Essentials Gem to the centre. 

The sentiment from the Spellbinders Many Merry Christmas Sentiments Stamp & Die Set was stamped on to white cardstock using Spellbinders Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink Pad. I applied Spellbinders Gold Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with more thin foam tape. 

My next card uses the Spellbinders Dancin' Deer Etched Dies. It was cut from Spellbinders Alabaster, Pink Sand, Phone Booth, Onyx and Timber Cardstock. I also used Hero Arts Cup O' Joe Cardstock. The pieces were assembled and adhered with Bearly Art Glue

The candy cane was cut from Spellbinders Snowdrift and Phone Booth Cardstock and like Santa, there are different hand/hooves options! 

I took a panel of white cardstock and ran it through my Platinum 6 using the Spellbinders Ski Lodge Embossing Folder (released September 14th). It was adhered to a US A2 sized white card base with thin foam tape. 

The deer was then adhered on top, again with more thin foam tape. For his nose, I added a Spellbinders Fashion Rouge Color Essentials Pearl Dot

The sentiment from Spellbinders Glitter Wishes Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set was foiled on to white cardstock using Spellbinders Champagne Glimmer Foil Roll. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with more thin foam tape.

I had so much fun making these cards! Like I say, the moving legs are very fun but they would work perfectly well just adhered down too. The characters are so cute! There is also a snowman in the collection too. Thank you so much for stopping by to see me today, I really do appreciate it. I hope you have a wonderful day and a great weekend! Take care!


  1. These are both adorable Michelle! The swinging legs are really good fun. I love all the pretty glitter accents and they look fabulous on the embossed backgrounds. You are way ahead of me with your Christmas cards!
