Hi everyone and welcome to the Spellbinders Blog. It's Sylvia here with my monthly post.
This week is all about Nestabilities™ here on the Spellbinders Blog. And I just LOVE my Nestabilities! I have so many of them and use them over and over and over again, because they are so versatile and you can use them for so many things in many different ways.
Today I want to show you how you can create an elegant and beautiful Christmas card without using lots of papers and embellishments, but just by using some lovely Nestabilities and some other Spellbinders goodies!
Spellbinders™ Paper Arts Supplies:
- white cardstock, sentiment stamp, light blue inks, light blue ribbon, decorative brad, clear rhinestone, dimensional foam adhesive
Let's begin with cutting the second largest classic oval and the largest scalloped oval from white cardstock.
After you've cut them out, you will want to run them through your Grand Calibur a second time with the B-Plate (embossing plate) and the tan embossing mat to emboss them.
Stamp a sentiment on the cut out classic oval
Use your largest and second largest die from the Card Creator set, cut from white cardstock
Emboss the larger one (see Step 1)
Take the smaller piece of the cut out white rectangle and place it into your M-Bossabilities embossing folder. Run it through your Grand Calibur machine using the A-Plate (Basic Plate) and a Raspberry Spacer Plate
Wrap a ribbon around the embossed rectangle, make a bow and –using dimensional foam adhesive- mount this layer onto the larger card base
Place your stamped and cut out classic oval back into the die and lightly wipe over it from the edges towards the inside with some light blue ink
Embellish the bow with a decorative brad and add a small clear rhinestone to the sentiment.
Mount all of your layers using dimensional foam adhesive onto a card base
You are done!
I hope you enjoyed this little step-by-step tutorial on how to create a simple, yet elegant card with (almost) only using Spellbinders dies and embossing folders!
