Spring Floral Cards with Spellbinders

Monday, January 29, 2024

I'm still loving and playing with the latest release from Spellbinders! The floral products have me wishing for Spring - give me all the flowers! Well, at least on cards because pollen makes my allergies go crazy. I was gifted a lot of what I used on today's cards, so let's go through them individually as while they're both floral, they're so different!

I kept things simple for my BetterPress card! I used the new A Friend Like You Bouquet Press Plate at an angle to get as much of the image to fit on an A2 cotton card panel. I used three different colors to try and give the flowers dimension and add interest to the card - Tawny Owl, Apricot and Strawberry. My sentiment is Tawny Owl only.

The panel was then trimmed down to 4x5-1/4" and added to a Kraft cardstock base. I put some of the Coral Mix into my wax spoon to melt down and I made small little embellishments when the wax melted. I added one of the twine impression on the card to make it look like a mini wax seal holding them together! I love the coral colors and think this card turned out really pretty.

For my second card, I let the dies do all the talking! I started with taking a sheet of each color from the Scrapbook.com Sprinkles paper pad and embossed the Columns Embossing Folder in blue. I die cut all of the die set pieces from the rest of the colors - I love using coordinating paper pads for die sets like these as I know they'll coordinate well together! I adhered my embossed background to my white card base after trimming it down to 4-5-1/4".

My flower images were popped up with foam adhesive to my card base. This die set fits together like a puzzle and I think looks so pretty! Which card is your favorite from the two? Let me know in the comments!
