This week the JustRite Friday Challenge 026-Nice Notes is sponsored by Spellbinders and the challenge is to create a shaped note card under 4-inches. Well I have never made a card using Spellbinder dies for the shape of the card. I have seen many cards made this way and keep saying I'm going to do it and today is the day!
I first thought about what I wanted to put on the front of this small card to decorate it. I decided to use my Spellbinder Daisy Petals die to create a flower. I cut two each of each flower -- a total of six layers. I used a very light gingham yellow design paper for the flower. I don't think you can see the design in the photo. I cut between each petal to give the flower some dimension then stacked each layer alternating the petals. A brad was put in the middle to hold it together.
I used the Spellbinder Labels One Nestability for the shape of my card. If you want a folder card, like I wanted, you fold your card stock in half then leave a small portion of the top of the Nestie above the card stock so it doesn't cut all the way through. Next I chose my design paper which is from the Basic Grey "Kioshi" paper pad. I layered it on top of another piece of white card stock and cut them out with the same Labels One Nestie. They were adhered to the folded card with adhesive.
The JustRite verse I used is from the "Friendship" Set. It is black embossed so it would show up well on the design paper. The Spellbinder flower was attached with a large glue dot and pearls added to each corner.
On the inside of the card I used another stamp from the JustRite "Friendship" set. It was stamped with black Memento ink and colored with Copic markers.
This was a fun little card to make. I'm sure I will now start making other shaped cards to use instead of tags for gifts. Have you made shaped cards using Spellbinder dies?
