Hiya friends! Hopefully the second time will be a charm in getting a winner for the Clear Case Blog Candy. Stay tuned to the end of my post. In the meantime a cheery ‘Hello Friend’ card using all older dies except this precious new window, Spellbinders Shuttered Window. It’s my favorite kind of card because I can take a new die and mesh it with the classic Spellbinders core shapes you already have in your stash :-) Did I mention I love windows? I guess you know by now even though I use a lot of large sentiments, I have a thing for tiny tags. Quick tip: Create a card using all the sweet stuff you pile on the front – great dies, flowers, cute buttons – then when you need a card simply put a one, two or three word sentiment on with a little tag – you’ll never be caught empty handed!
Here’s how I made it – step by step:
Start with a card base using Spellbinders Enchanted Labels Twenty Eight and simply cut off the bottom to give it a different look – you can see my tutorial on How To Make Hinged Card Bases. Next layer up add Spellbinders Labels Twenty Eight and cut the bottom off using Spellbinders A2 Bracket Border One – adhere using double foam tape. Cut design paper with Spellbinders Labels Twenty Eight then cut off top and bottom using clean edge bracket piece from A2 Bracket Border One set – adhere using foam tape. Next layer up add Spellbinders Window Four (I covered the back of my window so my design paper would not show through), adhere using foam tape. Next layer up add Spellbinders Shuttered Window. Add bow, flowers, button, pearls and hang sentiment tag from bow using Spellbinders Back to Basics Tags.
