Hey everybody! It's been 84 years since I last posted so you must be surprised to see me! Well, I was so lucky to be invited to celebrate Spellbinder's 20th birthday with them! Here are the two cards I made for the occasion:
First up, is this super fun stitching background card:
I used a piece of patterned paper from the new Cheerful Occasions paper pad to cut out the Stitched Fanfare background die. First I glued it to a piece of heavy weight cardstock to give it more stability when stitching and then cut it out.
I then stitched all the half moon motifs with DMC Etoile embroidery thread. It's got a nice little sparkle, which is perfect for celebratory cards! I then took another piece of patterned paper from the collection and mounted it onto an A2 top folding card. I glued the stitched background over that.
I foiled the "a big hello from me to you" sentiment from the Sentiments for Everyday hot foil plate and die set onto white cardstock with gold foil and fussy cut out. I added the sentiment to the background with foam tape and finished off the card with a few baubles.
Second, I have this fun birthday cake card:
This is a top folding A2 white card base with a piece of patterned paper (also from the Cheerful Occasions paper pad) cut slightly smaller.
I die cut the Stitched Fringe Cake layers in pink and red cardstocks, then cut down 2 of them so they would layer in a pyramid. Then I stitched with more DMC Etoile thread.
I cut the cake stand and the candles from silver mirror cardstock, and the wicks and flames from white cardstock, then simply colored the flame portions yellow. I glued everything together to make my cake and mounted it on a piece of white cardstock with rounded corners.
I foiled the sentiment "make a wish" from the Yana's Special Sentiments set with silver foil and die cut it out with the matching die. I inked the edges of the sentiment and the white panel with blush ink and mounted them on the card base with foam tape. Finally I finished it off with a bunch of clear baubles.
Happy 20th birthday, Spellbinders, and here's to many more!! Thanks so much for letting me celebrate with you all!! ~Maureen
