Spellbinders Tea and Books Card

Hey card making friends, welcome back.  I’m on a roll this week with all the club kits.  So, today it’s Spellbinders Tea and Books Card created with the Stitched Die of the Month Kit.  My goodness, I used EVERYTHING on this card.  The 3D Embossing Folder for the month, Classic Backdrop is my background.  I die cut all the flowers and leaves from pink and gold cardstock and then ink blended them.  I used the Glimmer of the Month kit, Sketched Lines for the sentiment, and I inlaid all the pieces of the bottom book, once I finished stitching it of course, then ink blended the edges.

I know this is over the top, and super girly for me, but I had so much fun with it, I just went for it, haha.  Plus I’m using  a pink cardstock I have not played with before, the Dahlia from Spellbinders, combined with Pink Sand and Gold Mirror – what a fabulous combination.

How to create the Spellbinders Tea and Books Card:

Start by cutting a white card front 4″ x 5-1/4″ and embossing it with the March 3D Embossing Folder, Classic Backdrop, and then attach it to the A2 sized white card base.

Next, die cut the tea cup and books from the Pink Sand cardstock, the flowers and inside of the book from white, and all the leaves from matte gold.

Then, stitch the cup and book with DMC #962 cotton.  Cut a second layer from Dahlia cardstock.  Inlay all the little die cut bits before gluing the remaining piece to the back of the Pink Sand.  Ink blend around the large book and cup with Worm Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink.

Attach the books and the tea cup to the card front using Foam Squares.

Embellishing the Spellbinders Tea and Books Card

Start by using a small blending brush to blend Distress Oxide Ink Worn Lipstick onto the flowers, layer the pieces and glue them all together.

Gold Glimmer foil the sentiments from the March Glimmer of the Month Kit, Sketched Lines onto white cardstock and die cut with the coordinating dies.  Then place over the white portion of the top book.

Then, using white glue and foam squares, add the gold leaves and flowers in and around the tea cup, cascading down to the books.

Finally, embellish with Gold Mix Color Essentials Gems.
