Spellbinders Precious Memories Tutorial

Hello Blog Friends - I hope you are having a good week - it is time for me to share a Spellbinders Tutorial - I have created a card that is very personal to me - it is for a very dear friend who has lost a family member way too early.  I wanted it to be a little different from the normal card for a time like this, to have a sense of celebrating a life rather than a sombre Sympathy card, but still being respectful

I was inspired by an insert from a photo frame which was too pretty to throw away and has worked perfectly to create a frame and made the 'recycler' in me very happy - check it out!!

Spellbinders Supplies:
Preferred Partners:
Other: Image, Narrow Tulle, button; recycled photo frame insert


1. Cut card base to measure 12cm x 17cm
2. Cut/emboss one (1) Detailed Scallops #4 (#1 being the smallest) using white cardstock
3. Adhere Detailed Scallops later to the card base using double sided tape
4. Position A2 Matting Basics B #1 #5  (#1 being the smallest) to create a frame as shown above
5. Secure using masking tape to ensure the Dies do not move
6. Cut/emboss using the Grand Calibur Die Cutting and Embossing Machine 
7. Adhere to the layered card base using Foam Tape for dimension

8. Fussy cut/hand cut the coloured image using scissors
9. Pop the image into the center of the frame using Crafty Foam Tape
10 Adhere the sentiment across the frame using foam tape in the center and double sided tape at each end
11 Adhere thin double bow using liquid glue
12. Attach a small button to the center of the bow
13 Attach Baby Bling around the scalloped edge as shown in the main photo.

I hope you are inspired to 'think out of the box' when it comes to materials and I have shown you, even in some small way how versatile the Spellbinders Dies are.
