Cardmaking with Spellbinders July Large Die Of the Month | Video + Giveaways

Hello crafters. Today I’m creating with the Spellbinders July 2019 Large Die of the Month. I also have a giveaway for you at the end of this video to thank you for being my loyal followers and viewers!

In my previous video, I have shared one idea using a part of this die, which is a wheel and I showed you how to make a fun background using just that die. For this video, I have two ideas both showing how to use this bike in a flat version on a card – on a standard A2 card, and also how to make a tandem bike for a long skinny card. Both projects combine die cutting with layered stamping to decorate the bikes with some pretty stamped flowers from WPlus9.

VIDEO TUTORIAL

Watch my video tutorial below or on Youtube to learn how I made the cards I’m sharing today.

A2 PARTIAL BIKE CARD

To use this die on an A2 card you’ll have to make your bike into a partial one. I used the front part, added a basket above the front wheel and created a pretty floral arrangement using stamps from WPlus9 – Fresh Cut Florals.

To create a sentiment for this card I used this month Glimmer Hot Foil Kit which is a set of fun sentiments and coordinating dies to cut them out, and I foiled “Yay, it’s your Birthday” in light blue foil. I used foam adhesive to pop the bike up on the card – this added a bit of bulk, but also that lovely dimension that just brings cards to life.

Next, I added a stamped “Let’s Celebrate” sentiment from Simon’s Tiny Words stamp set. I also stamped some dots in purple next to the floral arrangement making it visually fuller. Lastly, I used glossy accents and coated several bike parts with it to make them dimensional and shiny. I love using glossy accents to add some finishing touches to my cards. Finally, I added dots with Morning Dew drops from Tonic.

TANDEM BIKE CARD

I’ve always wanted to have a tandem bike die in my stash, tandems fascinate me for some reason and while the die I used today is not designed to make a tandem bike, this doesn’t mean I couldn’t tweak it to for that.

I die cut twice as many pieces for the key bike elements. I did look up tandem bikes online as this helped me construct my bike and decide where I needed to add the 2nd seat, handles and just how to connect the two bike bases together. It wasn’t perfect, but for someone who has no idea how this die was intended to be used, it’s not going to matter as this bike ended up looking pretty cute in the end.

I finished this card off in the same way. I just used Gold Mirror cardstock for some of the bike parts and also used gold foil to foil the sentiment.
