Each New Day is a Blessing Card – Sneak Peak Video Tutorial

Hello everyone, This is Yana Smakula here at Spellbinders and thank you for joining me today! This week we are taking a look at some of the new dies and collections coming to Spellbinders in 2017. I’m going to share peek at Becca Feeken’s Graceful Border Collection.

I started working on this card by die cutting base panels for my project. I used dies from the 6×6 Matting Basics A and B sets and die cut squares out of shimmer gray cardstock and glitter patterned paper. I didn’t do any embossing here, I simply cut those out. You can emboss these if you’d like to add some detail to the panels. For my borders I used gold foil paper and I die cut 2 borders at once. I used a border from the Graceful Damask set and a border from the Graceful Brackets set leaving some space in the center to accommodate the ribbon. I also die cut another border from the Graceful Damask set and for this one I used shimmer gray paper. I needed to die cut a few more pieces to complete this card, so I cut 3 circles using Large and Small circle dies. The largest one was cut out of shimmer gray paper, medium one – out of gold foil and for the top small one I used white paper where I stamped a sentiment. The last two pieces I needed were corners from the Graceful Corners One set and I cut those out of gold foil paper.
