Wedding day card

Good morning!

I’m up on the Papermilldirect blog with a tutorial on this wedding day card:

The products I used are:

White Card Hammered 255gsm

White Card Hopsack 255gsm

White Card Super Smooth 300gsm

Super Mirror Finish Card- Gold

Baby Pink Plain Card 240gsm

You will also need:

• Large scalloped die

• Doily die

• Heart die

• God embossing powder

• Heat gun

• Circle die

• Sequins

• Twine

To make the card base I folded a piece of White Card Hammered 255gsm in half. I placed my scallop die over the top of the card with the die hanging a tiny bit over the top. If you do this it will not cut the card therefore leaving you with a folded card base. I then die cut a smaller scalloped die using a piece of White Card Hopsack 255gsm. I then adhered this onto my scalloped base using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm. You will then need to die cut a doily I used some White Card Super Smooth 300gsm. I also die cut a circle using a piece of Super Mirror Finish Card- Gold. I then adhered the doily onto my card using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm. With the circle die I then used the next size down and die cut another circle using some White Card Super Smooth 300gsm. I adhered this onto my gold circle with some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

You will then need to die cut two hearts using some Baby Pink Plain Card 240gsm.

I heat embossed my sentiment with some gold embossing powder onto some White Card Super Smooth 300gsm and I then trimmed this to make a banner. I then adhered the hearts and banner onto my card.

To finish off the card I added some twine and sequins. I adhered the sequins with Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml as I know they will stay put and not drop off my card.

I hope you enjoy creating this wedding card.

See you soon!

Spellbinders never stop making

Hello!

I was really lucky and got sent some beautiful dies from Spellbinders and I made the following two cards:

This champagne flute die is so adorable and I thought it would look nice if I die cut the background with them. It’s perfect for a wedding or anniversary card.

I used the spellbinders D-Lites Beverages Etched Dies. There is lots more beverages in this cute package which is perfect for your cards.

I then made this masculine card with the adorable tv and control. I know this die will come in very handy for masculine cards especially if they are computer lovers!

I used the spellbinders die D-Lights You’ve Got Game. Its so fun to make some cards using the adorable game dies.

Please head over to the spellbinders website to see all the lovely products and a ton of inspiration.

Thank you Spellbinders and thank you for stopping by today I hope you have a lovely day!

Spellbinders never stop making

Hello! I hope you are having a great start to the week.

I was very grateful to receive these beautiful dies from Spellbinders and I had so much fun making these cards. They cut absolutely beautifully and I will be using these dies on many more cards.

I used the Shapeabilities Lavender Swag dieand I added some embossing powder to the edges.

This beautiful wreath is stunning and I had so many ideas of what to do with it but in the end I chose to make a cute baby card and I added some silver embossing to the edges to really make it pop. This die is great to keep on hand as there are so many different uses and it is just gorgeous!

This beautiful flower die is so pretty and elegant I used the Card Creator Poppies Pocket Cardso I knew straight away it would make a perfect wedding card but there are so many uses for this. I added some watercolour on top of the flowers to keep the soft colours and I also added a few sequins.

The flowers also emboss onto the card stock which leaves a beautiful image. So stunning! If you would like to see lots of beautiful dies, stamps and loads of inspiration please have a look at the gorgeous spellbinders website .

Thank you so much to Spellbinders I am truly grateful and I can’t wait to start making more cards with these dies thank you!

Thank you for popping by today
