Shape Card featuring Spellbinders’ Painter’s Palette

Hi everyone! It is fun to change up the format of cards that we make. I love ‘shape cards’ but it is not always easy to find a die that is suitable. The palette die in Spellbinders’ Painter’s Palette is perfect! This pretty card with a touch of whimsy is a perfect fit for an A2 sized envelope and it will display nicely for the recipient. This die set includes some great elements to support the palette die! All in all, Painter’s Palette is a winner!

The card base was die cut from Neenah Classic Crest 110lb card stock. The card stock was folded in half and the palette die positioned so the top would overhang the fold. The overhang area creates the card base‘s hinge. The die was run through the die cutter a couple of times. The hinge area of the palette will be misshaped. To compensate, a single palette was die cut to be adhered to the front of the card. Before it was attached, this panel was spattered with the same Distress Oxide inks that were used to colour the paint splotches.

There are four styles of paint splotch dies in this set. They were used to die cut white card stock and sheet foam. The splotches were coloured in soft shades of Distress Oxide inks and mounted on the foam die cuts before being adhered to the card. The paintbrush is created with three dies. The handle and the brush were cut from a soft dusty rose and the ferrule from white card stock. A Darice thin foam strip was used to mount the paintbrush onto the card.

The sentiment from Spellbinders’ Just A Tweet die set was cut from dusty rose card stock. Three flowers and stamens from their Cinch and Go Blossoms set were cut from white and the rose card stock. The flowers were shaped with a ball tool using the shaping mat from Susan’s Garden Ultimate Tool Kit. The paint splotches were coated with Nuvo Crystal Glaze. Soft pink confetti finished off with Nuvo Crystal Drops Morning Dew were used for the flower centres and to highlight the sentiment.
