Spellbinders | Combining club kits | A fun twist on inlaid die cutting

Hi friends, I have a fun floral card to share with you today.

I used a couple different club kits from Spellbinders for this card. The idea for this card was inspired by a project that the awesome @laurabassen created for #pinkfreshstudio:

Just like in this card, I die cut the word LOVE in a flowing, vertical layout. From July 2018 large die kit of the month, I used the outline letter dies. This set also has matching real letters that fit into these outlines. So, instead of leaving the letter outlines empty, I added the inside letters which are raised with a foam adhered underneath. Also, instead of tucking in the leaves, I added tiny little floral clusters which I made using dies from a previous card kit.

For my top most layer, I used a paper from Live More collection of PinkFresh Studio. This 6×6 paper pack came in August 2017 card kit from Simon Says Stamp. I used the marble like paper, taped my letters + the largest plain rectangle from Spellbinders Hemstitch Rectangle die set and cut them out. To the left over paper stripe, I adhered a piece of fun foam and die cut the inside letters from it. This way my letters were raised. I attached the negative rectangle piece directly to my white card base using scortape and added the raised letters in the middle of each outline using liquid glue (multi medium matte).

To decorate the card, I cut out several flowers and leaves using dies from previous Spellbinders kits. The flowers were from Spellbinders March 2018 card kit, and the leaves are from their June 2018 kit. I arranged the flower clusters and put the card inside my MISTI. Before permanently adhering them down, I used archival black ink with sentiments from Hero Arts Love stamp and cut set so that my sentiment now reads “Sending you” “love” “xoxo”. Once I was happy with the stamping, I used some foam squares and some multi medium matte to adhere all the flower clusters and also finished this card with some iridescent confetti sequins.

I loved this project – it was so much fun to create and I hope the recipient likes it too. You guys, please do give it a try and let me know how you like it. :-)

  1. Hello Varada! just subscribed – thought your love card and two tone happy birthday card using the diamond pattern from simon says were awesome! I’d like to buy the love dies and the inlays how do I connect to get these? Thank you, Denise

    1. Hi Denise, thanks for dropping by and thank you also for subscribing. Your support means so much to me! The supplies I used for each card are listed with links under each post. The dies for the ‘love’ card are from a Spellbinders Large Die of the month kit, this is a monthly subscription and I have linked to it. For the happy birthday card with diamond pattern – all supplies with links to buy those are listed in that same post. Let me know if you are unable to find any of those specific ones and I can share the links with you separately. Thank you!

      1. Hello again, thank you. I did see the supplies list and used the link but did not see the Love inlay Dies, nor did it come up after using the search option. I called Spellbinders left my info but still waiting for call back. I have purchased the Diamond Pattern already. If you would share the specific ones, i’d much appreciate it. Thanks, Denise

        1. Hi Denise, the exact ones I used were part of a monthly subscription kit for July 2018 by Spellbinders. This set is no longer available for purchase. I have linked to the various subscription (club) options in the blog post itself. That way you don’t miss on these great buys. They are good value for money for sure.

          Alternatively you can use this link: to shop for some other alphabet dies that might also work for these kind of card designs.

          Hope it helps!

Love to hear your thoughts. ...
