Thank you, Spellbinders Paper Arts, for sponsoring this contest!

Spellbinders is thrilled to introduce a new line of Edgeabilities® die templates! The new Edgeabilities come in sets of three, and include one Edger for beautifully detailed edge cutting and embossing, and two Decorative Inserts for sophisticated cut and embossed border lines. Mix and match between sets for maximum versatility. The six themed sets combine for over 70 design options!

(If the embedded video is not showing up for you, HERE is a link on YouTube.)

Let me show you how I’ve used them today.  With the projects below, I am introducing E8-002 Classic Brackets and S4-347 Labels Twenty-Three with you.

Missing You So Much card


1. Using a Scor-Pal, score the card stock in half.

2. Take the Spellbinders E8-002 Classic Bracket Edger die template, and the Fleur de Lis Decorative Insert and place them at the bottom of the card, and run it through a Spellbinders Grand Calibur™ Machine, to cut/emboss.
*Designer tip...run through 2 inches, then back out to cut or emboss only an edge.


3. Using the E8-002 Classic Bracket die template, cut a border onto purple Bazzill card stock using a Spellbinders Grand Calibur Die Cutting & Embossing Machine.

4. With a Scrapbooks Adhesive by 3L EZ-Runner, place adhesive onto the die cut.

5. Adhere the die cut to the inside front flap of the card.

6. Using die #3 from the Spellbinders S4-347 Labels Twenty-Three set, cut/emboss white card stock using a Spellbinders Grand Calibur Machine.

7. Using black ink, stamp the Flourishes Chrysanthemum flowers from the Year of Flowers 3 stamp set, onto the die cut, color in the flowers using Copic markers.

8. Stamp sentiment from the Flourishes Tag Lines stamp set.

9. Run black ribbon around the card front, and tie a pretty bow.

10. Using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, 3D White Foam Squares, apply the foam squares on the back of the Labels Twenty Three die cut, then adhere to the card.

Add some Want 2 Scrap bling, and make a pretty tag to match your card, and your project is complete.
