I have been a collector of Spellbinders for many years now and these are some of the first ones I ever bought. I always bought the Accent dies that matched the Motifs and that way I could get the most out of all the sets.
This particular set is the Vintage Lace Accents and Motifs and they are now retired from Spellbinders website. If you shop around to other places you may still be able to buy them but I wanted to include tutorials with older dies as I know that many of us have them in our collections

With die #7 Matting Basics A cut two panels and create a hinged card for your base
With die #7 Matting Basics B cut another panel in your chosen colour
From the Vintage Lace Accents and Motifs cut the largest circular dies in white and from the border strip cut six pieces in white.
From dies #4 and #6 cut these circles in blue to layer under the lace panels
Add the border strips to the blue panel spacing them out evenly across the panel.
Have a dry run before you glue them into place so that you are happy with the look and the glue them in place. Trim the edges for a neat finish.
I hand cut another blue panel to fit slightly smaller than the base and layered this lace panel onto it so that it also leaves a small border.
Layer up the lace circles with their corresponding blue ones and use foam tape in between the layers
Stamp and emboss your sentiment and add to your card front.
Wrap all the layers with ribbon before adding to your base card and place a double bow in the centre
Cover the bows knot with a dazzler and dot pearls around the sentiment for effect
More tomorrow ...
