First off, I LOVE Spellbinders™ Card Creator Series collaborated with Designer Cindy Echtinaw. You will notice that S5-133 A-2 Polka Dots has a ton of cuts so I put wax paper between the die template and white cardstock. The paper came out SO EASILY! Love it!!
I cut two of S5-133 A-2 Polka Dots largest die template to create the card base - one for the card front and the other for the back piece.
Then I scored the back piece ¾" from the top and adhered together with the card front die cut.
I used ScraPerfect's The Best Glue Ever because of its fine tip and I don't use too much of it, a little goes a long way with this adhesive :)
Notice the intricate embossed design in the motif die from S5-146 Botanical Swirls and Accents, just BEAUTIFUL!! I pulled out my KURETAKE ZIG Emboss Pen - great for detailing like this! I also used the emboss pen to edge S4-364 Spiral Blossom Four, added the glitter embossing powder and heated it. Can't really see it in the picture but IRL, it's wonderful!
After I cut/embossed/stenciled the "Love" die cut from S5-099 Jewel Keys and cut/embossed a base from A-2 Matting Basic A, I assembled as shown below. Added Want2Scrap pink pearls for the finishing touch and it's ready to send!
For cardmakers, I highly recommend Spellbinders Card Creator Series! The time it took to create this A2 card and not waste paper (from mis-meaasuring) was SO FAST = LOVE THAT!!
