{Decorative Border How-To}
  1. I started by making my card base by folding the white cardstock in half.  Cut a panel from blue paper to fit the front of the card.
  2. Position Spellbinders Edgeabilities® Pointed Edge Decorative Insert and Classic Petal Edge die templates on the patterned paper.  Once satisfied on the placement, flip the die templates over and secure them with repositioning tape (so that the cut side of the die template is on the paper). Cut/emboss using the Grand Calibur machine.
  3. Before matting the patterned paper on white cardstock, lay the paper down and position the Classic Petal Edge die template on the white cardstock so that it fits alongside the cut edge on the patterned paper.  Secure the edge, cut side down, to the white cardstock and cut using the Grand Calibur machine.  Adhere both the patterned paper and white cardstock panels to the front of the card.
{Design Tip}
I love how intricate these new Decorative Insert die templates are which means I can get beautiful detailed areas that are not only cut out but also embossed.  If some sections don't cut on the first pass through the Grand Calibur machine simply add a paper or cardstock shim to that area and run it through the Grand Calibur machine again, then emboss for a beautiful and intricate design.  


{Die Template Frame How-To}
  1. To make a frame embellishment simply nest Labels Twenty-Four #3 and #4 (Where #1 is the smallest) die templates on a piece of cardstock with the cut side facing down.  Secure both die templates with repositioning tape to the cardstock and cut with the Grand Calibur machine.

{Dimensional Frame How-To}
  1. To achieve a shiny and dimensional frame I applied a thick layer of Beacon Adhesive's Ornament Icing.  Once dry it resembles an epoxy embellisment. 
  2. Cut a Labels Twenty-Four shape for the frame backing.  Assemble the frame and embellish with buttons, glitter heart shape and wire swirls.
Assemble the card and adhere elements using 3D Foam Squares and Glue Dots.  Hand stitch a decorative border and finish by applying the rub-on sentiment.


For this project I used today's debuting die templates but in a slightly different way.  Although I used the same Edgeabilities Pointed Edge decorative insert, I paired it up with a different edge called Classic Triple Scallop Edge from Edgeabilities Classic Edges Two die templates to cut the blue border from Graphic 45 paper.

I also used the Classic Bracket Edge die template, paired with a coordinating stamp to create the colored borders above and below my flower.  The stamp is from JustRite Stampers and it is called Cast All Your Cares.

I cut the flower from WorldWin Paper's Classic Linen Cardstock using my Labels Twenty-Four die template.  I cut 3 nesting shapes from the cardstock and then scored them in the corners and points.  After folding along the scored lines I secured my flower to my wall sconce with a corduroy brad from Nikki Sivils.

sissun said...

I just happened to be googling all things spellbinder and happened upon this blog posting in the summer of 2012.

Gorgeous work! I like Labels 24! Confused it with Labels 9 and 5(?), which I purchased. (but they are are all so cool and I have a love affair with die-cutting and embossing. so no loss for me.)
Nice use of the edge abilities on both the card and especially the cone/sconcey thing. Is it a flat piece (the sconce) or a full 3-d cone?

I so admire your work and creativity. Thanks so much for sharing it with us.
