Elegant Card Idea Using the Spellbinders Chantilly Paper Lace Collection
An Elegant Card Idea using the Spellbinders Bella Rose Lattice Layering Frame S6-129 from the Chantilly Paper Lace collection by Amazing Paper Grace, Becca Feken. In this tutorial I show you how you can make beautiful, elegant handmade cards using dies from Spellbinders.
This post marks the first in a series of Spellbinders dies in the Chantilly Paper Lace collection that I’ll be sharing with you.
What I love about this collection is the versatility that it gives me in my paper crafting projects. You will see more of this versatility that I mention in future posts, so make sure you subscribe to my blog and my YouTube channel, Decor8yourlife, for more Spellbinders project ideas and tutorials.
Use Your Scraps
For this beautiful and elegant handmade card I decided to use scraps from past projects and some items from my stash. What I love about card making is that you don’t necessarily have to go out and buy new designer paper pads to make your cards. Just look around your paper stash, and I’m sure that you’ll find something that you can use.
The scraps that I’m using for this card come from a Paper Bag Mini Album project I did several months ago. I received a lot of positive feedback from this mini album tutorial; and I highly recommend you view the tutorial. In it you’ll see more uses to your dies from Spellbinders.
Flower Embellishments for your Card Making Projects
I’m one of those crafters who insists on using items she already owns (when she can remember where she put them) LOL. But seriously it makes no sense to me to go out and spend money on packaged flowers, when I have my flower dies from Spellbinders. They make stunning flower embellishments that rival any pre-packaged expensive paper flowers.
As you can see I decided to add one singular flower, sort of as a centerpiece, to this card. I just love how it came out! For this flower design I used the Spellbinders Donna Salazar Carnations Creations S5-049.
I also added a lace trim around the center plus a few flat-back pearls to accentuate the corners. This is one of those projects where you let the beautiful intricate die-cuts and designer papers do the work for you.
I’ve put together a quick and easy tutorial/process video of this gorgeous handmade card. I hope you enjoy the process. If you have any questions or comments, use the comment section below. I’d love to hear from you. Enjoy!
