Spellbinders blog hop featuring Sharon Sowell, Marisa Job, Stacey Caron and Lene Lok


Hi there crafty friends,

Today I'm joining the Spellbinders blog hop showcasing the following four collections:


You should have arrived here from the super talented Rubeena's blog!

To create today's card I used a wonderful floral die from the Blooming Garden collection by Marisa Job. I die cut the shape twice, once from patterned paper and a second time from white card stock. I created an A2 size card base from white heavy weight card stock and adhered an A2 size striped patterned paper panel on the front.


I then glued down the patterned paper die cut using liquid glue. Now, I prefer dimension on my cards so I added foam dots to the negative shapes in the flowers I cut from white card stock. I adhered these down. I fussy cut some black and white leaves from a patterned paper and attached them around the flowers. For my sentiment I used a die cut circle. To finish off my card I added some Nuvo Jewel Drops. 


I don't like to waste anything, so I thought I'd use at least a part of the white die cut shape too. I fussy cut out one of the flowers and glued it onto the flap of a black envelope. I also added in the negative shapes I had left from the patterned paper die cut. Done! I hope you like how it turned out!
