Spellbinders Chinese Knot Frame Tutorial

Hello friends - welcome and thank you for stopping by! I am delighted to be sharing a tutorial for Spellbinders using another Die from the Spellbinders Destination China Collection by Lene Lok.  I am mixing it up a little with both the Dies and the colours and am very happy with the outcome.  

'From detailed frames to intricate accents to beautiful lanterns, Destination China Collection by Lene Lok is a wonderful grouping of Asian inspired elements to bring an exotic flair to your projects.' -Spellbinders

1.Cut/emboss four Chinese Knot Frame Etched Dies using the both the second largest die, along with the insert and white card 
2.Adhere two dies together using by overlapping the inlaid rectangles on one side.  Repeat this with the remaining two dies.
3.Glue the two sets of die cuts together in the same way as above.

4. Adhere to patterned paper, trim abut the edges leaving approx 1/4cm around each edge.
5. Trim each corner diagonally leaving 1/4cm border of patterned paper.
6. Pop up onto a slightly larger white pre-cut card base using 3D Foam Squares.

7. Hand cut four (4) lanterns from the patterned paper, going around the edges using the Wink of Stella in Gold.
8. Adhere the larger lantern onto the centre of the left side of the card using double sided tape, followed by the smaller lantern using 3D Foam Squares - as shown in the photos above. 
9. Repeat on the right side, next sure a gold gel pen to draw string from each lantern to the  inside of the white patterned frame - as shown in the photos above.
10. Stamp the sentiment from the 100% Sweet Sentiments Clear Stamps onto white card stock using black ink.
11. Cut/emboss using the smallest die from the A-2 Matting Basics B Card Creator Etched Dies.
12. Use the Die as a stencil, sponging inside the cutting edges using Sea Breeze Ink.
13. Remove from the die and pop up across the lower portion of the Chinese Knot Frame using 3D Foam Squares.

  1. What a beautiful card Linda - love the way you have interlinked the frames, and they 'fit' your patterned paper so very well
