Good morning everyone. The weather here has been so gloomy, rain, hail and thunderstorms. I have wanted to create a card using the Spellbinders Nestabilities A2 Matting Basics A for a while now but just could not come up with a design.
Well since I am stuck indoors all day I had plenty of time to figure out something.
Die cut the Spellbinders A2 Matting Basic A (4⅛ x 5⅜” ) in White then (3⅝ x 4⅞”) in purple, attach together. Cut a larger purple piece to mat behind white cardstock. Then die cut Opulent Oval in White and glue to center.
For leaves die cut 4 each in white and purple Memory Box Meadow Leaves
You will need several sets of Fabulous Phlox in white and purple. Then just glue them alternating the colors and add Star Dust stickles to center of flowers. Attach flowers and leaves to left side of Oval.
For Butterfly punch out two pieces in each color, attach purple on top of white and then coat purple with 3D Crystal lacquer and sprinkle Art glitter. When dry attach to top part of Oval.
From the A2 Bracket Borders One pick one you like and die cut it in white and add purple cardstock to piece then attach to botton of card. Finally attach completed piece to card stock below.
Trim white cardstock with Rotary cutter to 8' X 10'. Score the card in the middle at the 5" line and use a bone folder to crease the edge of paper to form 5" X 8" card.
