Spellbinders | Quilt It Collection – Thanks for Always Being There

Hello, friends! I continue to share cards I created using Spellbinders – Quilt It Collection. You can find first project here and second one over here.

To create this card I used Gems Quilt die. This one cuts out several different shapes – half hexagons, triangles and hexagons that can be arranged in a number of different ways. I went with the traditional arrangement for this card.

I looked back at some of the cards I made in the past and found a few additional ideas. If you are to use triangles only, you can create a pattern like this; if you use hexagons only, you can make a pattern like this one or like this.

CARD DETAILS

I picked just a handful of colors of cardstock for this card – I wanted to keep it rather monochromatic. I went with Surf Blue, Audrey Blue, Sea Glass cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. After cutting the pieces out in my Platinum die cutting machine I added a sheet of strong double sided adhesive to a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″ panel and adhered my die cuts in place forming a pattern. I find adding adhesive to the panel I am building on, rather than to the cardstock I am die cutting from saves me a LOT of adhesive, plus there’s hardly any waste this way.

I trimmed my panel to 4 x 5 1/4″ and foam mounted onto an A2 top folding card base. Next, I stamped a simple “Thanks For Always Being There” sentiment using Simon’s Thankful Heart stamp set in black ink and foam mounted onto the card.

Lastly, I added a number of enamel dots using Nuvo drops in Gloss White.

    1. Yana, Thanks for sharing these card designs and Spellbinders product info.. Playing with these die cuts look like fun. Adding this die set to my wish list.

    1. They are so striking, and the color combinations are so pretty. The large script sentiments are perfect with all the geometric-ness 🙂
