Summer Gnome Card - Spellbinders Large Die of the Month

Summer Gnome 

Today I am celebrating Spellbinders Large Die of the Month for May by dreaming of summer fun.  Summer is on it's way and I'm prepared with the help of my wonderful Spellbinders dies.   

This card uses the the following dies: 
Truckin Through the Seasons - Large Die of the Month Club
Large Die of the Month Membership
Spellbinders Small Die of the Month Membership
Even More Sentiments Etched Die Set


The little gnome does crack me up - too cool for the summer.  The paper is Tulla and Norbert's Excellent Adventure from Photo Play

Photo Play Paper - Tulla and Norbert's Excellent Adventure Collection - 12 x 12 Collection Pack

The surf board and beach ball dies were from Spellbinders blockbuster hit die set, "Truckin' Through the Seasons"  - a very versatile set to have in your collection. In this case, I was able to accent my card with more fun die cut elements.  
The sentiment, "Enjoy" was from Spellbinders Even More Sentiments Die Set which can be used alone or as an additional enhancement for "Trucking Through the Seasons".

Finishing Touches:  
Little details can have a big impact on a card. These usually come in the form of finishing touches.  I added a sweet 3D button sand pail from Buttons Galore, and accented the card with sequin shaker mix for water effects.  The shaker mix is Buttons Galore - Aqua Dreams.

Prima - Finnabair - Art Basics - 3D Matte Gel - 8 Ounces


Adding Sequins and beads to Cards: 
Matte Gel Medium:  Gel medium is spectacular for holding sequins and beads to projects.  I slather some gel onto any project,  pour the beads and sequins, pat into place and sit back with confidence that my bits will not fall off my project. This dries crystal clear and does not warp my paper.  
I love it.   

Grab these adorable Spellbinders sets while available.  
And as always, the dies for Spellbinders monthly clubs are exclusive to Spellbinders and you won't find them anywhere else.
