Thank you Spellbinders.

The Gina K Designs team would like to welcome to you this special Spellbinders Thank You Blog Hop. Recently Spellbinders generously gifted each member of our Design Team with the amazing new Grand Calibur!!! What an exciting gift for sure and we are absolutely enjoying this fabulous machine. We have made some special cards and projects to showcase the new Grand Calibur and why we are loving it so much. Thank you so very much Spellbinders!!!

I created this card to say Thank you Spellbinders for this generous gift, I sure love it and I use it a lot :) It is so easy to die-cut, emboss and stencil all your pieces at once, saves you lots of time. I hope you are enjoying the hop and if are here from Gina's blog, you are in the right place :)

For my card I used Square and Oval Nestabilities and Fleur de Lis Dies and the great Grand Calibur.

Thanks so very much.

Directions:
  • Make card from White cardstock.
  • Mat Bubblegum Pink cardstock and Patterned Paper, add stitches. Tie ribbon around and adhere to card.
  • Stamp basket on White Cardstock, color it with Copic Markers. Stamp flowers in a separate piece of White cardstock, color it and cut it out.
  • Die-cut Basket piece using Square Nestabilities. Emboss and stencil as well. Mat this piece with a Bubblegum piece. Add stitches.
  • Die-cut a piece a of Bubblegum piece using Fleur de Lis dies and the Grand Calibur. Cut one side of it and adhere it to the bottom part of stitch image. Adhere to card.
  • Add flowers to image with foam tape. Add Crystal Lacquer and set to dry.
  • Stamp sentiment on White cardstock. Die-cut, emboss and stencil it with Oval Nestabilities using Grand Calibur Machine.
  • Add sentiment to card with foam tape.
