A Card for Mom

Sweet blog friends, happy new week!!  I haven’t had a chance to make a card for a couple of days;  I’m on the road taking care of some family business so I don’t have all of the craft room conveniences, as you can tell from my natural daylight pictures (phew, that was a learning curve at dawn).  I finished off a card I started at home and wanted to share ;-).   Are your eyes still twinkling after seeing the peeks and reveal of all the new Spellbinders??  Well, me too!!    Today I have a layered and jeweled card to show.  It’s made using Spellbinders ™ Elegant Labels Four.  It fit like a glove with two of the new CHA sets from JustRite Papercrafts; I used the Garden Gate Background which I stamped on the uppermost layer before die cutting.  Then I also used Buntings and Banners for the tags.  


My sentiment is cut using Spellbinders™ Fancy Framed Tags Two.  The tiny tag is just the cutest ever – it’s Spellbinders™Charmed I’m Sure.  I love the flexibility of this type of card, I can easily switch out my tiny little tag to direct this to another endeared family member or friend!


Because the card is so see through I decided to add design paper to the inside so that it peeks out a tad when the card is closed – just enough to make you curious :-)

    I am speechless. This is the most lovely, feminine, delicate card ever and has just risen to the top of my Becca favourites list. It has everything I love in a card – the intricate see-through dies, the bling, the shape, it’s pink and of course the Becca bow and ribbon. Who could ask for more!ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca

    Loving yr creations more than ever!

    I’m writing from Sunny Sngapore and because of you, I’m gonna take my card making to the Spellbinder level when I return to crafting soon.

    Can you advise which is the best machine to use Spellbinder dies with?
    I do have a Cuttlebug but don’t mind having a new machine.

    Looking forward to yr reply!

    Thank you so much.

    I’ve gotten a little behind on checking my email so I’m just seeing this beauty! I will be receiving this die as soon as they ship to my seller and can’t wait to do a card like this. It is amazing!! One question: How did you get the front and back pieces of the card together? The edge of the die cut looks very thin and my brain is just not giving me a solution! I know you have figured out a way to do this that will seem amazingly simple…. will you share?ReplyCancel
