Hello Everyone! My name is Melody Rupple and I am so excited to be the guest designer on the Spellbinders blog today! I will be sharing two cards I created with dies from the new Great, Big, Wonderful World collection by Sharyn Sowell..
My first card features the new With Love Die. I love the beautiful details and elegance of this silhouette. The set of three dies includes a floral frame with an insert rim to cut out the center, and a With Love sentiment. I decided I wanted to make a card for an upcoming wedding and went with a classic black, white, and gold theme.
I cut the With Love die twice, once from white cardstock and once again from black card stock. On the black die cut I did not punch out any of the detailed die cuts.
Next I die cut the insert rim from black cardstock and then die cut the sentiment directly into the center of the panel. I cut the rim die a second time from gold foil and layered it behind the sentiment. Then I inlayed the gold vines into the card front.
I rounded the corners of the card front and the layered the black and white die cuts on the card front. I attached the sentiment with form tape to add dimension and finished off the card with a few gold jewels.
My second card is created with the Love Grows die. I created the card in a similar fashion as the first card. I created the background for this card with watercolor paper and Distress Inks. I layered on the colors with a blending tool and spritzed the paper with water.
I thought this card would be perfect for either a wedding or a bridal shower. On this card I die cut the sentiment directly into the die cut silhouette and the die cut the sentiment and leaves again from colored cardstock, inlaying them into the first die cut.
