MC Dec/14 - Quill_SB Labels 41 - Makes You Happy - HB Card

size: 6"w x 8"h

Created: December 27, 2014

I got a few of the more recent Spellbinders dies... specifically Labels 41 Decorative Accents set for this card. Not that easy to cut... but worth a little fiddling and eCutting... And I raided my stash of quilled pieces and hand made embellies...

I'm using quote and sentiment stamps from Quietfire Design  ("Twirl Enjoy" 3pc set); ("Happy Family Days" 5pce set)


I die cut the largest from the Labels 41 set, running it through my machine a couple times... then running through using the tan mat to emboss. Sponged Distress "Pumice Stone", removed from die and applied Versamark all over and embossed with Pearlescent embossing powder. Stamped the quote with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

Used the negative of the die cut, scanned it and then eCut a solid under layer for my die cut. Used the negative center drop out from the die cut as a mask and sponged around the edges of the solid piece using "Weathered Wood". adhered the die cut to the solid eCut piece.

Cut another eCut piece of the solid layer as a shadow layer. Applied Iced Spruce around the edges, direct to paper, then clear embossed. Set all this aside.

Side folded my sage green linen textured cardstock and cut card to 6"w x 8"h. Adhered the shadow layer of the labels. Then a piece of Sari ribbon. Adhered quilled leaves here and there to give height to my next layer of the labels along with some 3D foam tape doubled up.

I had the vellum flowers in my stash (Hero arts "Luscious Frames" set) embossed with white embossing powder. I had misc gold/white center florets in them, then I decided to add the quilled flowers from my stash. Love the way it looks.

The bow (Tattered Lace), also from my stash, I added some Viva Holo Iridescent to give it a glittery sheen. Also put a square rhinestone center. Adhered it with a glue gun.

On the inside, stamped the flourish frame and the sentiments (both Quietfire Design) using the black and clear embossing on a white cotton paper. Colored some of the flourish openings with Prisma colored pencils and then a white pencil to blend. Stamped the flowers (Rubber Necker "Dual Rose") - the upper ones using Distress Mini pads and misting with water, the lower ones using Distress Markers and misting with water. (like the lower ones better...). Then adhered the paper insert into the card.
