Tuesday Tutorial - Combining Spellbinders

Hi Everybody,

For todays card I am going back to some of the older dies that you may have in your collection and I am combining several sets to produce my design.  I have used a pretty lilac and white colour scheme and added in the flowers.
Spellbinders Supplies:
  • S6-001 5x7 Matting Basics A
  • S6-002 5x7 Matting Basics B
  • S6-012 5x7 Mystical Embrace

  • S4-646 Labels 56
  • S4-328 Foliage

  • S1-026 Flying Bugs
  • PL-001 Platinum Die Cutting Machine
Other Supplies:
  • Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
  • Glitter from Glitter Magic
  • Card from Papermill Direct
With die #7 from Matting Basics A cut two pieces in white card to create the base
With die #7 from Matting Basic B cut a layer in lilac and emboss this layer with a 5x7 folder
With the largest die in Mystical Embrace cut a layer in white
With die #3 from the Deco Elements cut one in white
And with die #4 from the [plain label;s cut one more in white and emboss the top layer
Stamp and emboss a sentiment
Cut tow butterflies from Flying Bugs
Cut several large leaves from Foliage
Select the flowers to match your colour scheme.
