Glimmeristas, I hope you are ready for more Glimmer Fun!!! We have a new mini collection we are introducing today called Royal Flourish. With two card fronts as well as an oval border shape and square border shape – we’ll have some stash-worthy things for you to look at. We thought it would be fun to make a card and a matching box using some of our favorite die sets and the new Royal Flourish Glimmer Plates. It’s easy to do and is a show stopper when we need to give a gift.
Inspiration for Royal Flourish
Have you ever noticed during period dramas like Game of Thrones that the Royalty each have their own insignia and way of writing? It’s so cool and really fascinating that these things mattered to them. There was actually a lot of thought and flair behind the written word. It’s really no different today; we all have our own flourishes of style that we lay down to call things our own. It was this spirit of honing a style that gave me the inspiration for Royal Flourish. Glimmer is such a lovely way to add rich detail and embellishment!
We’ve been especially loving using borders with glimmer. For this collection, I’ve created two border sets that you can cut with Hemstitch Squares
and Hemstitch Ovals
. Card fronts that can take a sentiment seem to be the favorite, so happily there are two details plates that will make lovely frames to your favorite sentiments.
My Project For Today:
I’m happy to introduce GLP-127 Crowned Rimmed Squares
Rimmed squares is already a favorite of mine because the nested squares allow me to make frames and build dimension. Usually, when I’m working with Glimmer I think of it as a stamp and then go back to my stash for a special die to include to introduce texture. In this case, I’m using Spellbinders Flourished Square – it’s one of my go-to’s and lets me create a frilly underlayer that draws the eye in.
Our challenge today to was to build a card and then to use the same decor on the box. Lol, that’s my dream crafting session because it is so easy to do. Once my card was done, I simply scored up a 5 x 7 box and it makes the perfect ensemble. I think you’re handing someone the wow factor when you gift an ensemble.
These plates are available right now on the Spellbinders website —–>HERE
