Purple and White Spring Day

Good morning everyone.  The weather here has been so gloomy, rain, hail and thunderstorms.  I have wanted to create a card using the Spellbinders Nestabilities A2 Matting Basics A for a while now but just could not come up with a design.

Well since I am stuck indoors all day I had plenty of time to figure out something.

Die cut the Spellbinders A2 Matting Basic A (4⅛ x 5⅜” ) in White then (3⅝ x 4⅞”) in purple,  attach together.  Cut a larger purple piece to mat behind white cardstock.  Then die cut Opulent Oval in White and glue to center. 

For leaves die cut  4 each in white and purple Memory Box Meadow Leaves
You will need several sets of Fabulous Phlox  in white and purple. Then just glue them alternating the colors and add Star Dust stickles to center of flowers. Attach flowers and leaves to left side of Oval.

For Butterfly punch out two pieces in each color, attach purple on top of white and then coat purple with 3D Crystal lacquer and sprinkle Art glitter. When dry attach to top part of Oval.

From the A2 Bracket Borders One pick one you like and die cut it in white and add purple cardstock to piece then attach to botton of card.  Finally attach completed piece to card stock below.

Trim white cardstock with Rotary cutter to 8' X 10'.  Score the card in the middle at the 5" line and use a bone folder to crease the edge of paper to form 5" X 8" card.

Decorative Purse Tutorial

Completed Purse Card

Cut Edges to create shape

Same Technique just a different style

I had some leftover pieces from the Palace Oval Frame that I wanted to use so I thought it would be fun to create a purse card.  Take your 8 1/2" X 11" piece of cardstock and score in half then fold over.  Using a cutting mat with printed rule take a rotary cutter and ruler to cut off one side of the card.  Use the cut piece as your template to trim off the other side then cut so each side matches.  Now you almost  have a purse shape, with scissors trim off corners to give the purse rounded edges. 

Purse handle is created using the two largest Classic Oval die together then emboss with Polka Dot folder.  Attach to back of card.

Using the Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Labels Four die cut the shape and then cut piece in half.  Emboss with Polka Dot folder.  Attach to top of card.  Create Fabulous Phlox flower add a little Stickles Icicle Glue to the flower and when dry attach to top of purse.

Add center of Palace Oval Frame pieces in center under pink button and then Madera Corners and the completed Fabulous Phlox. 

When complete the card will stand upright.

Simply White Delight

This was such a quick and easy card to make.  I first die cut the Decorative Labels Eight, then added the Palace Oval Frame to the center.  Next I die cut two sets of Fabulous Phlox and glued them together and added the Primula Blooms to the flower center.  I attached the die cut Small lace Faerie Queen to the bottom of Oval Frame.

To create the punched edge for card you need to cut a piece of cardstock 5" X 11".  Punch corners first and then work your way up the sides of paper.  I did not punch the back bottom of card.   When attaching Decorative Labels Eight fit piece inside punched area so top is slightly above the fold.
