Spellbinders | Chantilly Paper Lace Hugs Card. Blog Hop + Giveaway (Now Closed)

Hello everyone and thank you so much for joining us today for Spellbinders November inspirational blog hop! There are 4 new (very different!) collections being released this month. I picked the traditional style dies from Becca Feeken’s Chantilly Paper Lace collection to create the card I am sharing today.

As of September 2016 I work as an in-house creative designer at Spellbinders office in Phoenix. While I do a lot of work for them and create a number of different projects I am only sharing what I truly love made using their products here on my blog. I do not and never will share projects or mention products I not love.

CARD DETAILS

This is a standard size A2 card. I started working on this project by cutting a blue cardstock (I used Simon’s Sea Glass cardstock) to 4 ⅛ x 5 ⅜ “ and foam mounting it onto the base of my card. Next, I die-cut 2 large Flower/Border from the Lilly Pearl Flat Fold Flower/Border set out of gold foil cardstock. This die can be used to both make a border and a flower! So clever! I cut my borders to size and adhered onto the card.

I picked some teal grosgrain ribbon and wrapped it around my card. Next, I die-cut & embossed the Outer Layer and Filigree Frame Layer from the Hannah Elise Layering Frame Small set out of gold foil cardstock. I always make a point of dry embossing my die cuts to have that extra detail added to them (and it always shows so nicely on any foiled cardstock). I foam mounted my elements onto the card.

I also die-cut & embossed Medium Label from the Breanna’s Corset Label set out of gold foil cardstock and foam mounted it onto the card. Finally, I cut & embossed Small Label from the Breanna’s Corset Label set out of white cardstock,  stamped a simple Hugs sentiment in black ink and foam mounted it onto the card.

I made a little bow out of the same ribbon I wrapped around the card, added a blue pearl brad and adhered it in place. I also embellished my card using white self adhesive pearls.
