Floral Doily Accents and Motifs

This is the Floral Doily set from Spellbinders 

I thought it would be a good idea to show you what the package looks like so that you know what you are looking for if you wanted to buy.

It also gives you an idea of what the dies are like and what they will produce.

I always buy the Accents and the Motifs for any set as that way you know that they are going to work together.

Having said that  any Spellbinders will  work with any other ....  so don't be afraid to  mix and match any that you have in your  collection.

They are very versatile and of course you want to get as much from your purchase as you can.

So over the weekend I am putting together a video that will show you  several different ways to make this set work.

This card is created with Centura Pearl from Crafters Companion

I have cut lots and lots of the shapes with this card and then I play to see what the layers will look like as I build.

The   background  and the  semi circles  have been in  an  embossing  folder.

 One of the border strips has been threaded with thin red velvet ribbon and a small bow added.   Red pearls have been added to the corner pieces and the whole lot layered up onto the red card.

The Diamante swirl is from Want2Scrap  which always makes a card look so rich.
For the back of the card I have made a stand and there is a video to show you how I did it.

Creating Card Stands   gives you  some alternatives on how  to make them ... and it saves you the need to  add an insert.

Just add your  sentiment to the front and write your greeting on the back.

More tomorrow...

  6. Thank you for this post. I went and watched the video on the stands, and I love that way of doing the cards. I make all my cards and the insides are sometimes the toughest, so this next year I am going to do my cards with stands. What a wonderful idea and I thank you so much for sharing this. Have a great day!
