Spellbinders Spring Blog Hop and Giveaway (Day 6)

Welcome to the Spellbinders Spring Blog Hop and Giveaway!  I am excited to be part of my first ever Blog Hop with Spellbinders and am looking forward to sharing my project with you - using the Floral Tags Shapeabililties.



Spellbinders Paper Arts™ Supply List:
Cross Promotional Partners

Other: Dauber

 There is a bit of cutting to be done for this layered card, but the Spellbinders Grand Calibur®Machine makes short work of that.  I started with the card base, cutting a 6" x 12" piece of card stock, scoring halfway and folding it in half.  Cut and emboss using the Grand Scalloped Squares Die using the second smallest Die, making sure the folded part of the card base is just inside of the die, so it is not cut. Next cut and emboss a single card stock piece with the same die for the card front.  I have used White Bazzill Basics Paper® to cut out both the base along with the largest Fleur De Lis Square Dies.  The My Mind's Eye™ patterned paper was cut and embossed with the smallest Grand Squares Die. Cut one (1) strip of border using the Classic Edges One and Classic Decorative Inserts Two in white card. Cut the Floral Tags from the coloured card stock, making sure I cut two (2) of the rose tags, one (1) of the daisy tag and one large rose flower, along with three (3) leaves in green card.  My sentiment is from one of the gorgeous Jewel Keys Dies.


Remove all card and paper from the Dies, apart from the large Rose - while it is still in the Die, paint it with some 'Smooch' adding some shimmer.  This is quick drying and will not harm your Dies, especially if it is wiped off quickly after use.  Sponge the leaves over the embossed part, ink will go onto the other parts of the leaves, but this is all part of the look we are wanting.  With the dauber angled, lightly ink the leaves on the Floral Tags, this adds to the look when the card is complete. Sponge around the edges of the Fleur de Lis Square - the sponging will go over the edges slightly, but this creates a softness rather than a crisp edge - something we are wanting for this card.




Add 3D Foam Tape to each of the Floral Tags, to the top only of the Large Rose and double sided tape to the lower half (as shown in the photo) and the Fleur de Lis Square.  Adhere the tags to the Fleur de Lis Square, starting the the daisy one in the centre and a rose tag either side. Pop the large Rose onto the middle tag, with the lower petals covering any petals from the Daisy - do not stick the double sided tape down yet 



Add a strip of double sided tape to across the three tags,making sure it goes under petals from the large rose.  Adhere the Classic Edges One. Border Add some Zip Dry Glue in the ends of each leaf, adhere under the rose - placement is up to you. Glue the Die cut sentiment to the lower edge of the tags, blow the Scalloped border.



Add the Want2Scrap Flourish, cutting it to size - that is one of the great things about this bling, it can be cut, making it work with any project and also making it last longer - you have to love that!  Next come the pearls directly onto the lace and finally to the corners of the Fleur de Lis Die...if you have trouble doing this with tweezers, try using your scissors for great control.


I hope you are inspired to try the Floral Tags, they can be used in so many ways and add such a pretty touch to your beautiful creations.
