Spellbinders Explore Beyond: Sneak Peek and Giveaway Day 2


***This post is a STICKY and will remain at the top until
the end of the Sneak Peeks and Giveaway
Please scroll down for new posts! ***
Welcome to the Spellbinders Explore Beyond: Sneak Peek and Giveaway! I am excited to be part of this fun event and can't wait to share my project with you using the new dies. I know we say this with each new release, but you are going to ADORE all of this new release, your Wish List is going to be HUGE! I can assure you!!


Spellbinders Paper Arts™ Supply List:

  • Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine
  • S5-179 Cut, Fold and Tuck Pinwheel Delight
  •  S5-181 A2 Bracket Borders One
  •  S4-328 Foliage

Cross Promotional Partners

·         Want2Scrap 72 Count Self Adhesive Le Creme Pearl
·         Bazzill Basics Paper®- white and purple
·         Scor-Pal® Scor-Tape™ 1/4"
·         Beacon Adhesives - Zip Dry Paper Glue 


Other: Dauber, Scissors, recycled button, repositional tape


There is a bit of cutting to be done for this filigree card, but the Spellbinders Grand Calibur®Machine makes short work of that. Start by cutting and embossing one (1) each of size one and two Cut Fold Tuck Pin Wheel Delights in purple cardstock. Secure them using repositional tape, to ensure the dies do not move and give an even cut, as seen in the photo below. At the same time using white cardstock, cut and emboss three (3) of the following border combinations - one (1) edge die and two (2) patterned inserts. Place together using the repositional tape, so they don't move while being run through the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine.







NOTE: To make it easier to remove the card from the Dies, you should add a layer of wax paper on top of the card, wax side up into the Die. This allows your die cut to be more easily removed from the more intricately detailed dies.



Carefully remove the Cut, Fold and Tuck Pin Wheel Delight Medallions from the Dies and remove the wax paper, if used. Start by folding the narrow inserts up and tucking under the portion to the left, as seen in the photos below - making sure you fold it back fully to make sure it tucks under securely. Continue to do this all the way around until it is complete. Spellbinders does all of the cutting for you and makes it so very easy.


Repeat with the smaller Cut, Fold and Tuck Pin Wheel Delight Medallion, then layer it onto the larger one, using a foam dot for dimension. Add a Want2Scrap 72 Count Self Adhesive Le Creme Pearl to the centre.




Trim the A2 Bracket Borders One to length, noting the notches on each side of the Die that act as a guide for different card sizes - this is one of the special features of these Dies. Leave a strip of 1cm at the top of each pattered border, to allow for attaching the next layer. Using the Beacon Adhesives - Zip Dry Paper Glue, layer the pieces together.




You can see the layers clearly in the photos below. Adhere the Die cut layer to your card base, that has been precut using a A2 Bracket Borders edge.




Attach the layered flower onto the leaves from the Foliage Shapeabilities® Die, using strong double sided tape




The possibilities are endless with the Cut, Fold and Tuck Pin Wheel Delight and A2 Bracket Borders One, each can be used alone or paired with any of the other Spellbinders Dies. The A2 Bracket Borders One also have the versatility of being able to be used to create a border (as shown in the card below) or even to create a die cut background as you have seen in my tutorial.
