Hello everyone! This is Hussena from Quill and Punch Works, and I am really excited and honoured to be guesting today on the Spellbinders Paper Arts blog. I have a card to share today I made using several dies from the Special Moments collection by Marisa Job. This is a spectacular collection with a wide variety of gorgeous, intricate dies. I love how there a number of different dies in this collection, and there is something for everyone! Here’s a look at my card:
To create my card, I first started by die cutting the largest die from the Vintage Stitched Squares die set from a lilac patterned paper. I adhered this square piece on my card base.
To embellish my card, I die cut the lattice oval die from the Floral Oval die set. I used White 80 LBS cardstock for die cutting the oval. I also die cut the same die from some White Fun Foam so that I could pop the white die cut piece on the foam for added dimension. I lightly colored the frame using a light pink marker. I also added touches of purple ink here and there on the lattice frame so that it would highlight the pink.
I wanted this card to have a very light, fun, and whimsical look to it so I decided to create some simple handmade flowers to go with the frame! I used the flower crescent die from the Floral Oval die set to create the floral foliage around my frame. I die cut the flowers from white cardstock, colored the centers of each flower using different color markers, and added a black enamel dot to the centers. So simple yet pretty, isn’t it?
The leaves were also lightly colored using green markers. I added some gold foiled buds here and there for added interest.
The Floral Oval die set also offers stand-alone flowers in case you don’t want to use the entire flower crescent die, which I think is very thoughtful and well designed. I die cut the largest flower using the stand-alone piece and added it to the right side of my card to help balance my card design.
The Special Day sentiment comes from the Special Day Frame die set. I die cut it from black cardstock and popped it using white foam for dimension.
