I decided to use two of the teapot die-cuts to make this beautiful shabby chic greeting card. The card base is the standard 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. I layered designer paper over a taupe piece of card stock, leaving 1/8th of an inch off the edges (for that layered effect). Read More
For the month of October Spellbinders has a beautiful Card Kit just for you! First of all, it’s packed with goodies! From their dies, stamps, embellishments, stickers and die-cuts to their 6×6 paper pads, Spellbinders offers a very generous card kit. You get everything you need (including the pop-dots and double-sided tape) for your card making projects.
The first thing that I do in my project is the pop-up feature. You will trim and score your card stock at the following:
4 pieces cut at 3×5 1/2 inches
place horizontally on scoring board and score them at 3 inches
place vertically on scoring board and score them at 1/2 inch
Your pieces will now have a 3 inch dimension at the bottom and 2 1/2 inch dimension at the top. (Which are now separated by the 3 inch score mark). You will trim off the top dimension at the 1/2 inch mark until it meets that horizontal score mark (3 inches).
Fold along your score lines, then take two of the four pieces that you initially trimmed at 3×5 1/2 inches and cut off the top portion, right along that 3 inch score mark.
You’ll then trim 3 pieces of card stock at 3/4 x 3 1/2 inches
Then you’ll score the three pieces at a half an inch on both ends and fold in the same direction.
The Card Base
Trim a piece of card stock to 12 x 6
Place it horizontally on your scoring board and score at 5 1/2, then 6 1/2
Take papers from the Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Collection and cut four pieces at 5 3/8 x 5 7/8 inches and two pieces at 7/8 x 5 7/8 inches.
I’ve put together this video tutorial so that you can view and follow along the entire process.
Tip: Work on the parts that take the longest first. This way your pop up card project will go by a lot smoother and seemingly faster. Off camera I took care of all of my fussy-cutting. I’m glad I did!
Hello Spellbinders fans! Today I have aSpellbinders September 2018 Card Kit Unboxing! Friends, I have some exciting news for you! Spellbinders decided to add a 6×6 paper pad to their already awesome Card Kit of the Month!
You get the dies, the stamps, the embellishments, the stickers, the ephemera pack, the double-sided tape, the pop-dots, the blank cards and envelopes, the card stock, and the paper pad so that you can create one-of-a-kind amazing looking greeting cards!
What’s also different aboutthis month’s kitis that there is so much ephemera (die-cut pieces) and so many stickers, that half of the cards I made didn’t involve any die-cutting at all. This makes for the perfect Saturday afternoon crop.
And of course, you get plenty of the fun Spellbinders dies that we all love! I had so much fun putting this card together! Let’s cross our fingers and hope that my daughter passes her driving test!
This one is another card that took no time to make. I just trimmed paper from the 6×6 pad, used the double-sided tape on a couple of ephemera leaves, pop-dotted the die-cut flower image, and added the sticker that says Lovely on the top. All of this was provided in the kit.
And if you’re in the mood for something Nautical, Spellbinders provides you with this theme too!
All in all, I must say this is their bestCard Kit of the Monthyet. I had so much fun making cards with this kit and I’m looking forward to making some more! Thank you Spellbinders!
