CARD DETAILS

For my today’s blog post, since school starts very soon, I thought it would be appropriate to create a World’s Best Teacher card. I started working on my project by doing all of my die cutting first. I picked a few dies and did a lot of layering with the help of regular circles.

I die-cut the main element for my card using dies from the Intertwined Spirals set out of pearlescent white cardstock. I combined the largest insert and the frame to create this piece.

Whenever there’s an insert and a frame die you can cut these in 3 different ways. You can cut just the insert – this makes up for a great lacy card front or window card. You can combine the insert with the frame like I did for my card and make a beautiful freestanding die cut. And you can also cut just the frame die to maybe create a mat to layer behind the intricate piece. I love versatile dies like this are they offer more options and possibilities when crafting.

I also die cut several additional shapes for my project:

My today’s card measures 6×6” – I made a top folding card base and foam mounted patterned paper panel on top. Next I layered my die cut layers using a mix of fun foam and foam adhesive squares. I also added some beautiful peach colored ribbon from May Arts and embellished my card with a large bow.

Even though I made a “World’s Best Teacher” card you can swap out a sentiment and make this card into any other one – birthday, miss you, anniversary project and so on.

Have fun die cutting!

    1. Such a versatile and pretty card. I could easily see this as an anniversary or birthday card! I’ve seen you use the First Edition papers before and I checked them out. They are beautiful papers! Thanks for the introduction. Wish there were more places in the US to purchase them. Can you say again where you found the pearlescent white paper? I really like the way Spellbinder cards come out and yet I still struggle to construct them. Any and all videos are much appreciated as I’m a visual learner. I’ll get it one day!!!!! Thanks for sharing another video, Yana!

      1. Thank you, Debbie! Yes, I too wish First Edition was more freely available here.
        the pearlescent paper is from World Win – look them up online, really gorgeous papers.
