Spellbinders – Floral Friendship Paper Suite Cards

Hello everyone. Thank you so much for stopping by today. I have a pair of cards featuring more brilliant products from the Floral Friendship Paper Suite collection but this time I paired it with one of the dies from the Four Petal collection too.

I got the idea to use this die with the Floral Friendship Paper Suite when I came across the sentiment die cut for the card on the right. See how it’s the same shape! So cool!

I wasn’t entirely sure how I was going to put the cards together so I started by die cutting Scrolled Punch and Pierce plate from pink cardstock. This is one large die that gives you three separate pieces. So I took each piece and inked the edges of them with picked raspberry distress oxide ink. Next, I decided that I wanted to separate the pieces and make two cards.

I chose patterned paper for each background and adhered them to white card bases with liquid glue. Then I started sorting through the pre-made die cuts to choose sentiments and accent images.

For this card, I popped the pink frame up with foam squares and then added the sentiment with double-stacked foam squares. I chose a sweet 3D butterfly from the stickers and added gold foil leaves and a flower to the opposite corner. To finish it off I added a few of the gemstones to the design.

On my second card, I added the outer frame with liquid glue and popped the center piece up with foam squares. Then I popped the sentiment up as well. Next, I glued leaves directly to the pink frame with liquid glue and popped the bird up with foam squares.

I wanted the butterfly to have lift as well so I double-stacked foam squares on the outer wings and used single-layer foam strip in the body. This was the wings are higher than the body to look like it’s flying a bit.

Last, I trimmed off anything hanging over the edge with my scissors. Then this card is finished too.

I’m still loving playing around with the elements from this beautiful collection! Next, I think I’ll add some to my journal for decorations here and there.
