I realised as I was taking pictures of this card that I hadn't blogged anything made with spellbinders for ages so I thought I should!
I love the multi layering you can achieve with the labels sets and labels 42 has 2 sets that accent it allowing you to make multiple frames and tags.
On today's card I have gone very simple with layers of the dies cuts and some simple stamping to create the focus. I started by cutting the largest die from the Spellbinders Labels 42 decorative accents set. I then stamped a few of the smallest sized daisies from the Daisy Corner elements set around the edge of the frame. Next I added the sentiment, from the same set, using Black Archival ink. I then placed the piece back in the die and inked around the die cut using squeezed lemonade distress ink using one of the new smoothies.
To make the frame I used the same die however I added the second largest die from the Labels 42 set to create a frame. I cut this in Sand foundation card and matted this onto a layer cut with the latest of the plain labels 42. I foam mounted, at an angle, the stamped panel using foam tape over the frame adding a strip of white seam binding behind.
To make large card I matted a couple of layers of Sand and Khaki card with the largest being 21 x 21cm. I added a panel, matted again in the darker colour, embossed with the quilted flower embossing folder and added Pearl PVA glue dots to pick out the pattern.
Finally I added a messy bow and a dazzler setting, the dazzler setting has been filled with pearl ova which looks like it is set with mother of pearl!
I hope you have enjoyed this trip down the spellbinders path for a change.
