A Touch of Glitz & Glam for Spellbinders' LILAC

Hello everyone! I have a glitzy, glamorous birthday card featuring Spellbinders‘ Lilac Etched Dies . It’s a card for celebration, or consolation depending on the person.... lol, and why not take it up a notch with lots of sparkle. Although not your typical garden variety, it is sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face … even those who would rather run and hide when their birthday rolls around! Yes, I have a friend or two …

Mosaic Bracket Card Builder was die cut from both pale gold glitter paper and foam and stacked. The die cut was adhered to a panel of pink card stock and the overhang trimmed off. Three strips of of card stock, one each of glitter paper, pink and ivory card stock were adhered along side the trellis. The panel was attached to an A2 sized, top folding card base.

For each lilac, the following were cut:

  • two small and one large lift

  • 3 set of blooms; 2 of card stock (pink for one flower and ivory for the other), 1 of glitter paper

  • 1 set of ivory leaves

The small lift was adhered to the trellis. The large one was positioned over this lift so the smaller lift was sitting at the base of it. The second small lift was adhered on top of the large lift in the upper area. The flowers and leaves were shaped. Please see the 'Video Tutorial'. The little blooms were adhered to the lift and the leaves positioned.

The sentiment from Spellbinders' Layered Mix & Match Sentiments was die cut from foam, glitter paper and ivory card stock. The glitter die cut was mounted on the foam and the ivory one offset onto the glitter one. Two small groupings of blooms were added to either end of the sentiment to highlight it. All of the flower centres were finished off with Nuvo Crystal Drops Caramel.
