I'm up on the Graphic 45 blog today sharing this card I made for my sweetheart on the occasion of our 23rd wedding anniversary. It's really a simple card to make. First, I cut a card for the base, 6” wide and 5” tall. Then I used Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Borders to cut the layered borders. Each border cut is around an 1” and they layer so nicely over each other. I love dies and use them all the time. I have a Cameo but find myself reaching for my dies most of the time. After cutting 3 border pieces to layer, I cut the final piece which is 4” from the center point to the top of the card and layered on top of the other scalloped border pieces. Then I diecut another little frame piece from ivory cardstock, topped that with a cut apart that I popped up with foam tape, added some pretty flowers and some diecut leaves and that’s it, all done. ½ hour tops and you have a simple, but elegant card. That’s 20 minutes to decide on the papers to use and 10 minutes for the actual assembly! J
If you like to make cards and tags, you might want to invest in a few basic dies. Diecuts give your projects such a nice finished look and you can use the dies over and over again.
