Beautiful blog friends! I hope you are having a wonderful day :-) I’m back with a card to share today – I love playing around with the new Cut and Tuck dies from Spellbinders. It was sweet serendipity when I figured out that they layer with other dies magnificently and it gives such a different look. This time around instead of folding over the cut and tuck part I took a skewer and simply curled that part over. Very dressy. Obviously for a card like this, it will have to go into a box/envelope so that the curls don’t get smashed or this is the type of card that goes in a larger package without having to worry about an envelope. I designed this one as a wedding card. The sentiment goes with a new tea/friendship set, Special Blend, from Our Daily Bread Designs, but I feel like the sentiment works for it well.
I started out the base of my medallion using Spellbinders™ Picot Edged Circles and layered on top Spellbinders™ S5-079 Persian Motifs. After cutting Spellbinders™ S5-111 Angle Approach I curled up each folded over element and put pearls on each section as well as fold up the cutouts from the center part. For the sentiment I used Spellbinders™ S4-353 Labels Twenty Five and rimmed it with my gold pen. I love the subtle and dressy texture of M-Bossabilities™ EL-001 Elite embossing plate, so I used it as the base panel for my card.
