Some of you may remember that Spellbinder’s has recently been celebrating the release of their brand new Sapphire machine with a partner blog hop across the web. Their last stop was at BasicGrey, and I got to join in with a couple of card projects featuring BasicGrey’s beautiful Tea Garden collection along with new Spellbinder dies. I’ve shared the first card with you before, and today I’m back with the second.
This sweet thank you card uses a mixture of Tea Garden papers and stamps, along with Spellbinder’s Mini Medallion One die set. I used the dies to create a fun layered flower for the focal point of the design. The mini medallions are petite dies, and may get a bit lost on their own, but stacking and layering die cuts like this is a great way to call attention to some of those smaller dies you may have. I added a stamped Tea Garden flower image in between the two layers, and popped up each with foam dots for depth and dimension.
For extra detail, I stamped the Garden Tile Pattern cling stamp onto patterned paper, and heat embossed with clear embossing powder before die cutting the smallest medallion from the paper. Just that little touch adds a whole lot of character to the flower. I used the same stamp on the background panel, too, to tie everything together.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a wonderful day!
