Spellbinders – June Large Die Of The Month

Hello, crafty friends! I’m back today to share a new set of cards created with the gorgeous Spellbinders June Large Die of the Month kit. If you are not aware of this amazing membership deal, you want to check it out! Spellbinders offers two types of monthly memberships, one for small dies and one for large ones, which include not only the cutting dies (of course), but also project inspiration and several benefits, such as discounts and gifts.
This month’s kit features beautiful and versatile corner florals.

For the first card, I started by die-cutting the image multiple times to create several layers. I backed the die-cut for the front of the card panel with patterned papers, making sure to include different shades of the same color for more variety. I fussy-cut extra leaves from another piece and just tucked them underneath for a fuller image.

To give texture to the 4×5.25” card panel, I simply scored lines to form a diamond-shaped design. I then added lots of layers between this and the card base: vellum, foam adhesive, another die-cut that I offset slightly, and patterned paper.

The sentiment, which I heat-embossed onto smooth white cardstock, comes from the Altenew BAF: Hibiscus Stamp Set. Again, I added vellum behind it to create continuity and bring the card together. Clear drops finished the card.

The second card features the other die in the kit.

I thought it would be fun to include some painting, so I used the die-cut as a stencil to watercolor the whole image. To achieve depth and saturate the colors a bit, I went over them with alcohol markers before adhering a clean die-cut on top. I also added a wash of paint all around the image for a messy look. The sentiment comes from the same Altenew stamp set. Again, I layered vellum behind the card panel and also the sentiment. Black splatters and clear drops added the final touch.

For the third card, I just used the leftover die-cut that served as a stencil on the previous card.

I loved the softness of the colors so much I had to use it. I adhered the image in the top right corner of the card panel and trimmed the excess. To balance the design I used part of the die-cut, with positive and negative spaces, in the bottom left corner – I really like the subtle texture created by the white-on-white look. I wrapped twine around the card panel three times and tied it in a bow. The sentiment was just heat-embossed with white embossing powder onto black cardstock and cut into a banner shape. As in the previous card, I finished it with black splatters and clear drops.
