Spellbinders | Layered Dimensional Die Cutting Series. Episode #1 – Birthday Card featuring Venise Lace collection

Hello everyone! This blog post and video marks the start on a new monthly feature I’m hosting on Spellbinders blog and Youtube channel called “Layered Dimensional Die Cutting Series”.

What is “Layered Dimensional Die Cutting Series”? Once a month I’m sharing a card project along with a detailed video tutorial showcasing traditional Spellbinders style with lots of die-cut layers and dimension!

For my today’s blog post I made a birthday card using several dies from Becca Feeken’s Venise Lace collection.

CARD DETAILS

I started working on this card by doing all of my die cutting first. I decided to go with pearlescent white cardstock for my die cut pieces. I love to use thicker papers with my intricate dies so that they hold their form better and I also love to use specialty papers like this pearlescent one as they add a lot of gorgeous shimmer to the finished project.

I die-cut and embossed the Plume element from the Marcheline Plume set. I cut just a label shape, if you want, you can combine this die with a circle die that comes in this set and create a gorgeous frame. I also die-cut a circle out of patterned paper, I used papers from the Pretty Posy 12×12″ paper pad from First Edition – these are my all time favorite papers for die cutting as they have beautiful finishes to them. I used this same circle die and cut 2 circles out of white fun foam. I needed those to add dimension to my card. You can skip this step and use foam adhesive, but I prefer to have solid dimension with the help of fun foam.

I die-cut two frames using dies from the Hemstitch Rectangles set. You can also cut these to be label like or a frame like by combining multiple dies. I cut and embossed 2 frames for my card. I really love these rectangles for the unique hemstitch detail, it’s gorgeous because it effortlessly makes your paper die cuts look like lace. One final piece I cut for my card is the Floral Oval from the Victoriana Crest set.

The card I am sharing today is rather large, so I made a 5 ¼ x 7 ¼” top folding card base. I used a 12×12 sheet of paper to make it. I cut two pieces of cardstock, scored one of them at the top, added adhesive, adhered the second piece of cardstock to create a top folding card and later trimmed it to size.

I used a piece of patterned paper cut to 5×7” for my background; I distressed the edges using scissors and layered beautiful floral paper underneath it. I took this even one step further by adding Glass Beads into the distressed crevices to really make my background pop. After foam mounting all of the die cut pieces in place I added a hand stamped Happy Birthday sentiment and embellished my card using several flowers (I fussy cut them out of patterned paper) and a silk ribbon bow.

    1. What are you doing after you die cut? It looks like you are flipping it over and using a silicone mat (tan) and a different pad (blue). Does that help with embossing?

      1. I replied to your comment on youtube with links to more video, Mary. Hope it’s helpful! Let me know if you have more questions 🙂
