Thank you Spellbinders Paper Arts for sponsoring this contest!



Here are the new dies I am introducing:
Sku Name E8-009 Classic Decorative Inserts One
MSRP: $19.99
DIE SIZES:
Beads: 3/8 x 8”
Hearts: 3/4 x 8”
Tulips: 7/8 x 8”
Sku Name E8-007 Classic Edges One
MSRP: $19.99 
DIE SIZES:
Classic Ric Rac Edge: 1/4 x 8”
Classic Scallop Edge: 1/4 x 8”
Classic Postage Edge: 1/4 x 8”

Project Instructions:

1.     Make a 5.5 x 5.5” card base.

  2.     Cut a 5x5” piece of patterned paper and adhere to center of card front. All of the papers that I used for this card are from Fancy Pants Road Show.

    3. Choose four different solid color papers, cut three strips of the same size  (5 x1 ¼”) from each of the four papers.

4.     From each set of three strips, using your Spellbinders Grand Calibur machine, you need to die cut two using just the Classic Scallop Edge die template and one using the Classic Decorative Inserts One Bead die template along with the Classic Scallop Edge die template.


5.     Adhere a strip of contrasting colored paper behind each of the four strips with the Decorative Bead cut out.

6.     Layer your three strips from each solid colored paper, adhere them together.  Adhere the strips to your card front making sure to overlap one end on each set of strips.


7.     Die cut and emboss and 1 1/2 x 8” strip of paper using Classic Scallop Edge and Classic Decorative Inserts One Hearts die templates. If an area didn't completely, add a paper or cardstock shim only to that section. Cut again, then emboss for a beautiful and intricate design!

       






8. Score strip at every “valley” of the scallop and right below the bottom tip of every heart.


9.  Accordion fold strip of paper (make sure you don’t fold the paper above the heart so that you maintain the rounded look of the petals), glue ends together, and press down center to form flower.



10.  Glue flower to small circle of paper for stability. Glue flower to lower right hand corner of card.

11.     Die cut and emboss two leaves using LF-005 Grand Peony Creations die templates. Ink the edges and the raised areas of both leaves and adhere to card. 

12.   Stamp sentiment using Flourishes Tag Lines stamp set and embellish with Want 2 Scrap adhesive jewels.

The second project that I made using these die templates is a wreath.  I have plans to post another blog post in a few days with the focus being this wreath and how it was made. So make sure you come back and check it out!
