Two Elegant Spellbinders Cards

T

Tmika Plair-O'Neal

CARD #1

  • Start out by cutting down a piece of cardstock to 4 x 5 ¼. This is your card insert.
  • Add Nuvo Crystal Drops in white around the perimeter of the card – as desired.

CARD #2

  • Using your rectangle nesting die, position the rectangles so that it creates a nice even frame. Use washi tape to secure to get exact duplicates.
  • Cut 6 times (depending on thickness of paper) you want to create a little ‘well’ to hold the sequence/shaker mix.
  • Set (1) negative rectangle and (1) frame aside for later.
  • Using wet glue, adhere (5) of frames together – on top of each other.
  • Cut (1) of the Fancy Lattice die in desired paper.
  • Apply spray adhesive (works best and easiest) to the back of the lattice cut and lay on top of lawn Fawn acetate.
  • Grab the last remaining frame, apply wet glue to the back and lay on top (center) of the lattice and acetate combo.
  • Cut off excess using a trimmer for a clean and even cut.
  • Grab your card base (Craft Perfect) – cut it down if needed so that it creates a ¼ border around the perimeter of the card.
  • Cut a piece of cardstock down to make an insert – depending on the size of your card.
  • Stamp your sentiment using the Avery Elle stamp set and Gina K Designs Ink (jet black). I cut my stamp into two separate pieces. (Wish Big)
  • Center ‘Big’ sentiment onto the card stock insert and stamp. I added three tiny dots in front of my sentiment.
  • Apply adhesive to the card stock insert and place (right) on inside of (Craft Perfect) card base.
  • Grab the stack of frames and apply wet glue to the back of the stack and center on top of card front.
  • Add the (1) negative frame base to the center of the frame using ¼” scrappy tape. Make sure it lays flat.
  • Add the negative tiny pieces of the lattice die to the inside of the ‘well’ as well as any desired sequence and seed beads.
  • Add wet glue to the perimeter of the lattice topper and secure on top of the frame ‘well’.
  • Cut (1) middle flower and (3) small flowers form the Laced Flowers die Set.
  • Pinch the edges of the petals together on all flowers. Press the center of each flower in the palm of your hand to create dimension.
  • Layer (1) large and (1) small together (offset) on top of each other with hot glue.
  • Layer the remaining (2) small flowers together (offset) with hot glue.
  • Add 3D foam square to the back of both flower sets.
  • Cut (2) sets of leaves from the Cinch and Go Four and pinch up. Follow the center line.
  • Attach the two leaves together at the end – twice.
  • Stamp ‘Wish’ onto cardstock and apply 3D foam squares to the back – fishtail if desired.
  • Add the (2) flower sets to the front of the card and tuck the leaves underneath each set.
  • Add a drop of Nuvo (ivory seashell) to the end of the sentiment.
