CARDS

I have 2 cards to share today.  The dies from Spellbinders are amazing and make the most fun addition to any card!  The best thing about Spellbinders dies is the cut AND they emboss.  I just love those details.

This first card uses the Tropical Pineapple dies and the Hello Expressions dies....

Spellbinders

To create this card, I added a piece of striped paper to the card front and layered it with a shimmery vellum.  I die cut the pineapple out of gold glitter paper and the top from green card stock.  I popped the pineapple up on foam tape after adding some shading to the pineapple top with a green Copic. I die cut the hello with white cardstock and then added it to the pineapple with liquid glue.

This next card was fun to make.  I love watermelon.  So much!  When I saw these Fruit Salad dies, I knew I had to go crazy with the watermelons!  :)

Spellbinders

To create this card, I die cut and layered up several watermelon and then added them around the front of the card with foam tape.  I added a simple sentiment to the bottom of of the card to finish it off.
