Spellbinders Get Well Soon Card
Hello again bloggin peeps
A quick-ish card from me today made for a friend at work.
I used an 8 x 8 card blank and cut a mirri base mat and then a smaller mat from pearl cardstock.
I used an A4 Mbossibilities folder to emboss the beautiful background design.
From the DCWV luxury stack I cut a base layer with a spellbinders label die. I then used the same die and the next size down to cut a frame which I colourised with spun sugar distress ink.
I took some pink card already embossed with dots and cut the marianne butterfly and the small scalloped circle spellbinders die.
I then used a die from a spellbinders persian accents die twice from white pearl and again colourised with the spun sugar distress ink.
To assemble I inked the edges of the embossed white pearl base with the spun sugar then glued it to the gold base. I arranged the cut from the luxury DCWV where I wanted it on my card and then glued the little frame with glue gel so it was raised. I then glued the pink scalloped circle in the middle again with glue gel and then offset the two persian accent cuts. I had to use peel offs for the sentiment as I could not find a get well soon stamp to use (might have to look for a nice one) and stuck them down centrally.
I added the butterfly in the corner and then added an offcut from a gem swirl which had some pinkish pearls in. I decided I didn't like the body of the butterfly so added some large clear gems to cover it. To finish I added a gem in each corner, glued it all to my base card and added an insert.
I really liked this card, there are quite a few stunning spellbinder cards being made now having been inspired by Sue Wilson, and I have to admit I haven't made many of this type before so definitely need to play around more with this style.
Anyway all for now
