Craft Along with Spellbinder’s Crafty Advent Calendar Day 16

Hello everyone! We are already at Day 16 with Spellbinder's Crafty Advent Calendar! The countdown is real! Today's door revealed a fantastic word die. This die set includes both a script and a shadow die. I am doing it up in RAINBOW style on the this fun slimline card.


Be sure to check out the VIDEO TUTORIAL!

  • Starting with black card stock measuring 4" by 9", a ruler was used to mark off 1 1/2" intervals with ticks. A light pencil line was drawn the length of the panel 1/2" in on the left hand side.

  • Using the shadow die, the outline of the word was die cut positioning the left hand side right along the pencil line while centring it between the tick marks. This shadow die was used to make five die cuts. The die cuts are retained.

  • The largest die from Postage Edge Slimlines was positioned over the die cut black card stock centring it left to right and top to bottom.

  • The script die produces individual letters. HELLO was cut five times from card stock following the rainbow profile of colours. Each HELLO was adhered to the black shadow die cuts.

  • The shadow die was used to cut black sheet foam five times and the word die cuts were stacked on them.

  • Bristol Smooth card stock was cut to 3 1/2" by 8 1/2".

  • The edge of the panel was ink blended alternating between Distress Oxide Inks picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Mowed Lawn and Broken China.

  • The black panel was adhered to the ink blended panel and then mounted onto an 3 3/4" by 8 3/4" black card base.

  • The foam backed words were adhered to the die cut openings.

  • The card was embellished with half pearls coordinating the colours with that oh the word die cut.
