Hello crafty friends!
Today, I’m here sharing a couple of cards that I created using the August Large Die of the Month kit from Spellbinders. You can get all the information about the kits and how to join on their website here.
Here are the 2 cards I created:
Having these large dies made making a card fast and easy!
Here is the HELLO card:
I die cut the single flower image out of light pink cardstock. I gave the flowers some definition by using some distress ink in picked raspberry and a small sponge dauber. I also die cut the corner die (with the flower and swirls) from aqua cardstock. Using my scissors, I snipped the end pieces to add to my card as leaves.
Next, I die cut a square from white cardstock, using nestabilities small classic squares, and sewed some wonky lines back and forth for a little texture using my sewing machine. I attached the flowers, the darker one directly onto the background & the lighter one on some foam squares, and the leaves.
To finish off my card, I attached the card panel onto a white square card base. I also attached a sentiment strip and pearls for a little more detail.
Here is the Congratulations card:
Like the first card, I did some machine stitching onto a white card panel. (The scallops is one of the patterns my machine can sew…love it!) I die cut the corner piece and a single flower from silver cardstock.
Next, I stamped the sentiment directly onto the panel. Then I attached the corner piece on the panel using liquid glue. I adhered the single flower with foam tape a little off set onto the flower on the corner piece. To finish off the card, I added a black enamel dot on the center of the flower, and hand drew little black dots for the tiny flowers. I also added some light pink enamel dots for a little color.
I love how my cards turned out! The dies made it so easy to create a card! I hope I’ve inspired you to get crafty!
