SPELLBINDERS VICTORIAN ARCH
Hello, and welcome to Guneaux Designs. Today’s card share features the Spellbinders Victorian Arch Dies. I have had these dies for over a year but have not used them. I decided to use them yesterday to respond to a Splitcoaststamper.com challenge related to hand fans. When I read the challenge, I immediately thought of the Spellbinders Victorian Arch dies as they remind me of a hand fan.
This is a photo of the Spellbinders Victorian Arch dies:
I used the dies and white card stock to cut out the arch. I decorated the white arch with Nuvo Crystal Drops Bubblegum Blush drops and Heartfelt Creations Crystal Clear sparkly granules. Subsequently, I cut a second Spellbinders Victorian Arch with white card stock on a foam sheet. I did not want the small cutouts to come out of the die cut, and the adhesive foam sheet kept them in. I colored the arch with a light green ink and adhered the first arch over top of the second one.
I cut a piece of designer paper from the Heartfelt Creations Classic Wedding Collection and attached it to my card base made from Stampin’ Up! Mossy Meadow card stock (retired). I used a Stampin’ Up! Blushing Bride marker to outline the roses on the designer paper. Then I attached the Spellbinders Victorian Arch onto the designer paper.
I wanted a butterfly to fill in the left side of the card. Therefore, I used the Heartfelt Creations Botanical Wings Stamp Set and matching Die to create a butterfly. Using green and pink Distress Oxide inks, I sponged the colors onto the butterfly and attached it to the arch with its wings raised.
For my “hugs” sentiment, I used a CottageCutz Hugs Phase Die to cut three Mossy Meadow “hugs”. I adhered the three together and covered them with VersaMark® Watermark Ink. I added clear embossing powder on the sentiment, heat set it, and attached it to the card.
I would love for you to share your thoughts about the card. Feel free to leave a comment(s).
