Oh boy, today is the day! I have some very exciting news to share! I’m celebrating in two places, so the second you’re done here, hop over to the Spellbinders Blog to see another project I’ve created to celebrate! I am so excited to be debuting new dies for Spellbinders in anticipation of the Winter 2015 Craft and Hobby Association Trade Show. I join you today as the newest Spellbinders Licensed Designer and am thrilled to be bringing everything you know and love about Spellbinders and Amazing Paper Grace together in new dies.
I’m so very grateful to Stacey Caron and the Spellbinders staff for allowing me to bring the dies I dream about to life. I’m told that people ask Spellbinders what new dies I have coming all the time, so thank you so much for your support! Today, mischief doesn’t even describe what we’re doing! We are sneakily pulling two dies out of this collection to give you a sneak peek before anyone else – yep, they haven’t been seen before. Stay with me to the end of the post and you will have a chance to win these two die sets by entering the contest at the bottom of this post. In the meantime, please welcome:
S4-503 – Arched Elegance Pocket
S4-504 Arched Elegance
Over the years, some of my favorite cards shown on my blog, have been pocket cards! To make that endeavor easy, I created Arched Elegance and Arched Elegance Pocket. You’ll be so tickled when you see how many occasions these dies will take you through as well as how many ways they can be used – I can’t wait to share all my ideas over the coming months. For today, I’ve made a project with an unconventional use – a Custom Gift Box and Note Card Set. The box for the set is created using the Pocket upside down as part of the lid!!
The decorative flap on the note card plays into the design and adds just a little bit extra in the presentation when allowed to overhang to the outside. But no worries, in the background you can see what it looks like with the decorative flap tucked inside the box – the choice is yours.
On the inside of each card is a liner sheet with the same Arched Elegance Motif echoed on the bottom – it’s the hallmark of elegant stationary and it’s such easy touch to accomplish with the inlaid die.
I’ve created a video to take you through making this Gift Card Set – step-by-step. Want to see what both sets of dies look like? Click the YouTube play button and you’ll see them within the first minute. This is my first video in more than a year and a half and I’d be honored if you subscribed to my channel – I have lots of ideas waiting in the wings!
