Spellbinders’ Large Die of the Month for December
Hello everyone! It's reveal day for Spellbinders' Clubs! Always exciting! The Large Die of the Month is gorgeous with all the beautiful layering details. I love the two floral sprays that nestle together to fit perfectly on the heart. I have created a card with a vintage look ... a nod to Victorian Valentines.
This beautiful die set consists of a large heart, two floral sprays, flowers and a sentiment. The floral sprays were cut from dark green card stock and black foam. The leaf edges were brushed lightly on a Versamark ink pad and embossed with gold embossing powder. The sprays were stacked on the foam die cuts.
The heart was cut from ivory card stock and embossed using Bevelled Diamonds Embossing Folder. The heart was adhered to a black foam die cut.
The floral sprays were adhered to the heart. They are designed to fit neatly together on the heart creating a cohesive floral design.
The flowers were cut from shades of pink and red card stock. The flower centres from matte gold. The flower shapes, including the centres, and any layers are scored on the sprays making it very clear where to position the die cuts. Some flowers were adhered directly to the base and others popped up slightly with low mount foam squares.
A Versamark ink pad was rubbed lightly on the edges of dark green card stock sized 4 1/8" by 5 3/8" and embossed with gold embossing powder. Very sparingly, sprinklings of gold embossing powder was added to the panel and melted by applying the heat to the underside. This panel was mounted on a black top folding, A2 sized card base.
Using the edges of the flower spray dies, dark green card stock was die cut and the leaves trimmed off. The edges of the leaves were also embossed in gold.
The heart was adhered to the card base leaving the edges free to attach the leaves.
The sentiment was die cut from both matte gold card stock and foam and stacked. The sentiment was 'tacked' on to the heart catching the high points of thr flowers.
Gold foil pearls were adhered around the fringe of leaves.
