Perky Penny Picks - Spellbinders Paper Arts Die-secting the Dies

I saw these dies and my head started filling with possibilities of what I could do with them. As you may know if you follow me I am a big fan of thinking outside of the box.  Here are to pretty cards I created by doing just that.

I die cut 3 of the Love Grows die from white card stock and 1 from a pink glitter card stock. I then stacked them and offset the pink glitter layer on the very bottom.

I then die cut a panel of French Flair die from the Rouge Royale Deux Collection and trimmed it to connect with the Love piece.

I took an A2 card base and trimmed it down to the width of Love Grows die and adhered the trimmed down piece of the French Flair die on first and then the die cut stack to the bottom.  I finished this card off with the "with" die cut out of the same pink glitter card stock and backed up with a piece of white.



I die cut a duo of the top flower spray, of this With Love etched die and then butted them up opposite each other centered on a 3 3/4" x 5" white card stock panel and then place that over a silver mat that measures 4" x 5 1/4".  I die cut the 25th out of the center of said silver mat.  These numbers come from the Shapeabilities Filigree Numbers Etched Dies.  I glued the numbers to the Vellum which I wrapped around the card to appear as if it is a belly band.

Quick and Easy, Minimal Supply Christmas Cards Part 4 - This and That

Welcome to my final day of the Quick and Easy, Minimal Supply Christmas Card series.  Today I will be focusing on other craft supplies I found in my local stores,  from washi tape to pom poms, stickers to gift tags with a little bit of the good old "chenille sticks" mixed in. 

Check out the video and then head on back for card measurements, images and notes on the cards.
