Ornate Blessings - Spellbinders Large Die of the Month Club

Good morning! I'm back today to share another card using the past Spellbinders Large Die of the Month set from October. 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!

For this card I used the mail large ornate frame to create my card. It's hard to see in the photos, but I used the plain square to die cut out the center of the frame, then backed it with vellum for a soft effect. I layered some thin gold glitter washi tape around the edges of the inside of that frame, and secured them down with machine stitching (since washi doesn't always stick super securely to vellum!).

I trimmed a card base to fit behind the inside of the frame - that way nothing detracts from that intricate detail, but I still have somewhere to write a note or message.

Around the edges of the frame, I decided to add a little touch of extra gold - sort of a gilded effect. I dipped the edges in an embossing ink pad, then sprinkled on gold embossing powder and heat embossed it. LOVE this effect so much!

Finally, I die cut a couple of the floral images in both gold cardstock and black cardstock, and adhered them together slightly offset, before mounting with foam adhesive on the front of the card. I die cut the word from anther Spellbinders Die Set - Blessings Vine Frame also from gold and black cardstock, again adhering them together slightly offset for a shadow effect. I glued that directly on my cardfront, and then finished off with several clear droplets from Pretty Pink Posh - including one each in the centers of the flowers!
