Hello friends, Happy February! Today I’m sharing 2 cards; one made with the February 2023 Large Die of the Month kit (DOML) called Spring Reflection, and one with the Small Die of the Month (DOM) called Floral Mini Tiles.
I have really enjoyed picking a color palette lately, and making all my monthly club kit cards with those colors. The Spellbinders cardstock colors I chose this month are waterfall, teal topaz, lagoon, purple mist, lilac blossom, pink sand, wild berry, and brushed gold.
I made my first card with the DOML.
I used my Platinum 6 die cutting machine to diecut all of the pieces. There were many pieces that you had to cut out twice to create the mirrored look. Next, I started assembling the floral pieces, then gluing them on to the bigger greenery piece. I glued the 2 frame pieces on either side of a piece of cardstock that I trimmed to A2 sized. Then, I adhered the 2 floral pieces to the oval with foam tape, the sentiment to the middle, and then adhered it the the teal A2 panel with more foam tape. I glued the entire panel to a white A2 cardbase. To finish off the card, I added gems to the middle of the small flowers.
For the next card, I used the diamond tiles and the flowers on the DOM.
I diecut all the pieces several times from the same colors of cardstock. I tried to vary the tiles a little bit. If you notice on my card, some tiles are backed with the lighter or darker coordinating color of cardstock, while some colors are not backed at all (you can see the white cardbase behind the cut outs). I also cut out solid diamonds, and started gluing them to an white cardbase that I trimmed to be slightly smaller than A2. I arranged and glued on the diamonds. To add even more variation, I glued some of the diamonds to the cardstock, and used foam tape for several others. For the sentiment, I stamped and white heat embossed the “have a Beautiful Day” sentiment from this month’s Clear Stamp and Die of the month. I added gems to the center of the small flowers to finish my card.
