Good morning! Today I have a special project to share using the BRAND NEW Spellbinders Large Die of the Month for March! It is so very lovely - and I had tons of fun! You can read all about their different kit options HERE - lots of options to check out!
This month's kit includes a fabulous die for a darling little treat or gift package, as well as some beautiful florals, flourishes, and cute little tags!
Here is a photo of the finished project in my hand - just to give you an idea of the scale of it:
I thought it would be fun to cut it out of vellum - and then I actually ended up cutting all of the decorations from vellum as well, and coloring it with Copic markers to add some interest and color variation.
I love the look of Copic markers on vellum - you have to use slightly more intense colors than you normally would to get it to show up clearly.
After adding a scribble of Copic marker to the tag to mimic a bit of a watercolor background, I heat embossed a sentiment from a cute Heffy Doodle stamp set by stamping with Versafine black ink and then sprinkling on sparkly embossing powder. Once it heat set, I added the leaves and flowers with glue, and then weighed the entire thing down with clear stamping blocks until it dried sufficiently - this kept it from curling up as the glue dried.
I did the same thing for the decorations on the side of the box - laying the die cut vellum down flat on my desk, glueing the flourish on, then adding one of the brand new gems from Pretty Pink Posh over the center - then weighing down with another clear stamp block until it dried and I could assemble the box.
I punched a tiny hole in one side of the top of the box, and used that to tie on my tags with a touch of jute string.
What do you think - isn't that fun? These kits are a great deal - lots of value for the cost! Go check this one out HERE!
