Spellbinders February'21 Blog Hop + Giveaway!


Hello, crafty friends!
I'm ecstatic to be joining Spellbinders for the February 2021 Clubs Inspiration Blog Hop today. Spellbinders is celebrating all their Club Kits in shop for February 2021.

If you arrived here from, Jenny Colacicco's Blog, then you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Spellbinders Blog. We've got tons of inspiration and giveaways for you on the hop today, so keep reading till the end of this post for more information.


I have a Layered Floral Card to share for the hop today using the Amazing Paper Grace – February 2021 Die of the Month Set. In case you missed, it I shared a Card on my blog few days ago using this month's "Bella Diamante" Set, which you can check out HERE.
Bella Diamante is a 5 x 7 card front, with several element layers and rims to use as inlays. These multiple rims and elements will allow for both A2 and A7 cards. The elegant die design gives you the the ability to create shaped cards,  framed cards, or little gift boxes.

For my card today, I die cut the large decorative die cut from Buttercream Cardstock and Gold Mirror Cardstock using my Platinum Die Cutting Machine. I slightly offset the two frames to create the illusion of depth without an excessive amount of bulk. Then, I die cut the large diamond die included in the set from Banana Cream Cardstock, and adhered it to the panel using Craft Glue

Next, I taped the diamond decorative insert and square dies to interior diamond outline and die cut it from Tin Pail Cardstock and Gold Mirror Cardstock. I adhered the detailed die cuts one on top of the other, slightly offsetting them, for visual interest. I stamped my sentiment on the square die cut piece and popped it on the panel using foam squares

To embellish my card, I die cut some blooms using the flower dies included in the Bella Diamante Set and the Cinch and Go V Etched Die Set. I die cut them from White Cardstock and colored them using a combination of Fun Stampers Journey Inks and Distress inks. I coloured the pink flowers using Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and Bubble Gum Fusion Ink Pad, while the daisies were coloured using Lemon Drop Fusion Ink. I individually embossed the petals using Embossing Ball Tools and added gold glitter balls to the centres for interest. The leaves are from the Cinch and Go III Etched Dies and an older die set by Amazing Paper Grace, which is now discontinued. I die cut them from White Cardstock too, and coloured them using Electric Lime Ink Pad. I also added some embossed details to the leaves for a more realistic look.  


I adhered the flowers and foliage to my card panel using a Hot Glue Gun. This panel was mounted to a piece of Gold Mirror Cardstock, which was then adhered to a side-folding card base created from Buttercream Cardstock. This card was fairly simple to put together and I hope you like it!
