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

Take care
