A Spellbinding Day!!

Today is a special day for a special lady!

Happy Birthday, Stacey!!!

Stacey is Stacey Caron, President of Spellbinders™ Paper Arts and is a wonderful friend. A bunch of us at Spellbinders created cards just for the occasion! So Stacey, I hope you have a wonderful day full of happiness and joy! xo

Just a quickie to show you all how I created my shaped card. It required just an extra die cut. First I cut TWO pieces of the shape I'm going for (S4-305 Eyelet Squares #4/smallest size being #1). On one of the die cuts, I scored (in this case) 1/2" from the edge - the card's back side. With liquid adhesive (I used Zip Dry - love that stuff!), I covered the scored area and adhered to the back of the other die cut.

I wanted to show you the inside of the card. Using S4-305 Eyelet Squares #2, I cut/embossed over the sentiment from Mint Motif's Very Square Sentiments (Spellbinders 2010 Design Team Member Kimberly Crawford!) - a gift from Santa!

Supplies Spellbinders Grand Calibur, S4-305 Eyelet Squares and S4-126 Classic Squares LG; Cardstock: WorldWin Papers and Bazzill; Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye; Stamp: GinaK Designs and Mint Motif; Ink: VersaMark, Sparkle 'N Sprinkle and Stampin' Up; Flowers and Pearls: Prima; Trinket Pin: Maya Road; Ribbon: Offray; Adhesive: Beacon Adhesives and Glue Dots
