a Pair of Cards, featuring the Spellbinders October large die of the month kit.

Hello friends!

Today I’m sharing 2 cards that I created using the October 2018 Large Die of the Month from Spellbinders.  You can get all the information about the kits and how to join on their website here.

I absolutely love these metal dies!  Living in Texas, you see a lot of trucks, and I think the older ones are so photogenic, so to speak…

The truck die reminds me of a truck that I like to take photos of, on, in… here is an example:

This photo is from a few years ago.  Isn’t the truck, my girls, and my baby bump cute?

Back to the cards…

I used colored cardstock, silver cardstock, glitter paper, and pattern paper to die cut the different elements of my card.  Before I glued everything together, I used distress inks to age the truck, and a few Copic markers to add just a little bit of shading.

For the Christmas card, I used distress inks to create a chilly, early morning background.  I added some snow flurries using white ink.  I hand cut a snow bank, and added another sentiment.  Then, I attached the entire thing to a white card base, added red & white twine, and called it done.  I love how this card turned out!!!

For the Fall card, I used pattern paper and green cardstock for my background.  I used the same sentiment as the Christmas card.  I mounted it all with foam adhesive to a craft colored card base, added a string orange and white twine, and I was done.  I really like how the plaid paper really gives the card a farm/country look.

This die kit is awesome!  You could make so many different cards with it, because you get so many different pieces!  These would make perfect masculine cards too.
