Inspired Basics Collection with Annie Williams

Hi there, this is Annie Williams and I’m excited to be back on the blog today to share a couple of projects using the new Inspired Basics Collection from Spellbinders. The versatile dies and pretty hot foil plates in this collection inspired me to create three easy and uplifting cards perfect for sending a little cheer.

Create a Decorative Tag Card

The Create A Decorative Tag Die Set is perfect for creating gift tags for all kinds of occasions.  I added a foiled and die-cut tag to an embossed background for this pretty floral card.

Create a Slimline Border Card

I love how versatile the Create A Slimline Border Die Set is.  Here I’ve used the beautiful loopy border on a slant with some of foil plates in the collection for a simple and pretty mini slimline card.

Create a Flutter & Flower Bow Card

I thought the Create A Flutter & Flower Bow Die Set was so unique, that I had to use this set next. Here I’ve added a cute butterfly bow to a simple background for an easy and pretty card perfect for lots of occasions.

  • Trim a piece of white cardstock to 4.25” x 5.5” and die cut it three times across the center using the 4 petal flower border die from the Create A Slimline Border Die Set.
  • Trim pieces of Purple Mist, Lilac Blossom, and Royal Amethyst Cardstock to about 4.25” x 0.75” to adhere behind each die-cut row.
  • Add the cardstock strips to a top-folding A2-sized white card base with tape runner and then pop the die-cut panel up on top with foam adhesive.
  • Die-cut white, Waterfall, and Mirror Silver Cardstock using the Create A Flutter & Flower Bow Die Set and assemble with liquid glue.
  • Apply Silver Hot Foil to white cardstock using the Everyday Sentiments II Foil Plate Set and trim it out into a small strip.
  • Add the bow to the center of the card front using liquid glue.
  • Pop the sentiment up beneath the die-cut rows with foam adhesive.
  • Embellish with Silver Mix Gems.
