Spellbinders | Kit of the month inspiration

Hi friends, it is first of the month and I have a fabulous card to share with you made using the Kit of the Month club goodies from Spellbinders. Believe me guys, these kits just keep getting better.

For this card, I used the patterned paper, dies, stamp, puffy star stickers and the card base – all from the kit.

I started by die cutting the top and bottom of the dress from two different patterned papers from the kit. I also used a silver glitter paper from my stash to cut out a belt and a bot for the dress. In addition to die cutting, I also used the same dies to add embossed details to the top and bottom of the dress. I scored the pleats of the skirt for the dress using score lines from the die. Using liquid adhesive I assembled it.

I cut the hanger from two pieces of cardstock – black and silver – both from the kit and made my hanger look like it is black with a silver metal hook at the top. I also cut out another hanger from a piece of black cardstock at the back of which I had added foam tape. I adhered all three pieces of the hanger – the foam tape one, the black one and the silver hook – using liquid glue. I also adhered my dress to the hanger using liquid glue.

To add a little bit of interest to my background, I stamped the tutu using gold galaxy ink twice – making it appear like a glow of light (or wings?). MISTI helped with the proper positioning.

For the sentiment, I die cut the word ‘you’ using black and silver cardstock again and layered them slightly offset using more liquid glue. To adhered delicate pieces, I find using liquid glue much more easier since it is more forgiving and lets me move things around for a bit.

To assemble the card itself, I added my dress to the card base using foam tape + (yes) liquid glue and added a couple stripes of patterned papers on one side and finished off with 3 puffy star stickers from the kit.

When my princesses saw this card, they were like ‘Can I have a dress like that?’ :-)

Hope you like this idea and give these kits a try. They are amazing value for money and you can make at least 10 cards (and have lots of leftovers for more), each time. Also other than the dies which are exclusive to club subscribers, some of the goodies are available for individual purchase.
