Winter Pine Cone Card - Spellbinders Layered Kaleidoscope Die


Wonderful Options Using Layered Dies from Spellbinders

Continuing the magical wonder of the layered die, Spellbinders has introducing a new die to add to the collection.  Oh the options and intrigue one can create with these dies.  This is the Kaleidoscope Petals Etched Die. This is also the prefect compliment and addition to the Large Die of the Month for December, the Kaleidoscope Trio Strips and Borders.

My card uses the petals as frosty winter pine cones.  
The image below shows the die designs with various shades of blue.  The darker shades indicate layering.

The base layer here is the silver.  I really had to play around with the layers to decide which I preferred.  Oh the choices - fun for a paper person.  

The glittered silver became the base layer because I wanted to keep the glitter look to a minimum with only accents of frosty appeal.  

The paper used on this card is Ciao Bella - Time For Home 12x12 Paper.  The winter scenes in this collection are peaceful and delightful.  One of those collections that's difficult to cut apart and yet needs to be displayed on projects for others to enjoy.

Bright Bold Embellishments with Sequins

The card has been accented with sequins from one of my favorite shaker mixes at Buttons Galore /28 Lilac Lane.  This mix is Dragon Fire and is part of their  Embellishment Bottles collections.  The bold sequins are great for berries on my card.

Amazing Cards of Encouragement - Spellbinders AGP and Card Club Extras


You are Amazing - Spellbinders APG  and Card Extras for December

Today's card theme is kindness, encouragement and support.  While everyday is a great day to reach out with encouragement and positivity,  the Christmas season seems to hit many in a most difficult way.  

My card is simple yet has a powerful sentiment.  Graceful elegance is the whole concept of Spellbinders APG - Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month (designed by Becca Feeken).  The monthly die is thoughtfully designed with the idea of creating cards and projects with unique grace and charm - Becca Feeken's signature look. 

   This month, one of the elements from the APG die set is a beautiful rose panel, exquisitely detailed and eye catching. I pulled out the stamp set from the Spellbinders Card Club Kit Extras and created a wonderful encouraging sentiment. 


******************************************************************************

******************************************************************************
 
The "Extras" are embellishments and elements from the monthly card kit that can be purchased individually at a great price from Spellbinders. 

Here's a link to this month's Extras from the Spellbinders Store.  Each month the selection of extras changes, and this month the stamp set captured my heart.  It's perfect for so many occasions through the year to provide someone with those much needed words of encouragement and support. 


My card has few embellishments to distract from the most important message but the sweet 3D buttons Hearts from Buttons Galore are perfect finishing touches.

You are special, kind, amazing and so thoughtful for stopping here today to encourage me. Happy crafting.
