Spellbinders Release – New Dies #2

Hey friends!

I’m back with another burst of inspiration for the new dies from Spellbinders! Today’s card features just one die set, but it’s got big effect!

Spellbinders Laced Flower

I started with a blank piece of white cardstock. I grabbed some Washi tape I had on hand – one had black&white stripes and the other was a fun gold diagonal stripe pattern. I carefully placed my black strips down first, leaving around .75 inches between them. Then I went back and laid my thin gold washi over top of the bottom black stripe. I did this to make the repeating pattern a little smaller and not take up so much of my white space.

I used my Mini MISTI to stamp the sentiment ‘thanks (Large Thanks from Honeybee Stamps) with clear embossing ink. Then I used the gorgeous Gilded embossing powder from Brutus Monroe.

I die cut my set of 3 flowers from the Laced Flowers die set from Spellbinders. I cut them all from black cardstock, but I heat embossed the largest and smallest flowers with Gilded embossing powder. I love how they look metallic! I used a brad to secure the three flowers together.

I thought the flowers made the card look too crowded and busy, so, I grabbed some Vellum and wrapped it around the bottom of my card front. I just glued the edges of the vellum on the back side of my paper so there were no glue dots on my card front. This helped mute the bottom pattern a bit and make the flower stand out as the focal point.

To finish off the card, I added a few Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal Drops and mounted my card front of some foam tape for added dimension. Viola! My card is done!

I hope you find some inspiration over on the Spellbinders website. As always- if you have any questions, just give me a shout!

Hugs to you all,
