A Simply Sweet Card Using Edgeabilities   Friday, November 09, 2012
by Guest Author   Post Type: International Guest Blogger

Note from the Editor: There are so many wonderful new dies, that we sometimes forget some of our older favorites. Spellbinders Edgeabilities offer a wide range of uses, from card making to home decor, as we saw earlier this week on the blog. We hope you enjoy this tutorial from one of our International bloggers, Monika Martinson.

 

Hi there! This is Monika, sharing a card I made using the Spellbinders™ Edgeabilities® Classic Edges One.

 

Items used:

GC-001 Grand Calibur®

E8-007 Spellbinders™ Edgeabilities® Classic Edges One

E8-010 Classic Decorative Inserts Two

S4-229 Labels Five Nestabilities®

Back to Basics Tags

Other:

Kaisercraft papers, bow, Stamp from Momas lil´shop of stamps

 

Spellbinders Edgeabilities

 

I started by folding the card base in the middle and cutting it slightly bigger then the size I want it to be.

 

Start by cutting the folded side with the die, make sure that the straight part of the die is just outside of the card like on the photo.

Next step is to cut the next side by placing the die like this. Using a cutting mat with guides makes it easy to align the die straight. Use repositionable tape to keep the die in place.

Now continue with the rest of the card, cut the bottom side last.

 

Next step is to use the Classic Decorative Inserts Two on the red background paper. You'll also want to make a tag like shape of the dotted paper by placing the Labels five Nestabilities die. Finally, glue everything on to the card with 3d tape and ad the little tag from the Back to Basics Tags on the bow.

    Verry pretty, I never think about using the labels plain with a little color on them like you did, I always think I have to stamp something on them.  But it is very pretty by itself.  Thanks again for thinking outside of the box for those of us who do not always do that.

    oh Monika, I just adore the stamps you design! They are soooo beautiful! And what a clever way to use the edgeabilities to create a shaped card! Love it!

    What a super card Monika, love how you have used the Edgeabilities, and your stamps are out of this world. Such lovely fresh colours too!!

    Never thought of using the edgeabilities on all 4 sides.  Thought it would cut through and ruin the card as thought you would have two 4 edgeabilities sided pieces.  Now I  have to go try it.
