Spellbinders - Home for the Holidays Lady

November 16, 2019

Happy Saturday, crafty friends! I hope you are having a good weekend so far! We are sitting here watching football, and I thought I would write up a blog post. I feel like this card has been a work in process for about a month now...lol! When this Home for the Holidays small die from Spellbinders arrived in October, I was SO excited to use it. The first thing I did was find the papers that I wanted to use with it, and I finally settled on the My Mind's Eye Splendor 6x6 paper pad. Then those items sat together for a couple weeks because I was just so darn busy.

I brought them with me to Texas, but didn't end up getting a moment to start. When we got home, I got all the pieces diecut and finally....I got most of it done last night and finished the rest this morning. Sheesh!
1. Diecut the pieces of the lady from patterned papers & cardstocks, then layer together with Connect glue.
2. Diecut the pie, ink blend with antique linen oxide ink, then layer together.
3. Diecut the scalloped background from 6x6 patterned paper, then mount to an A2 card base with foam adhesive.
4. Diecut the label frames from cashmere cardstock & gold glitter paper.
5. Diecut the ribbon from striped patterned paper.
6. Stamp the sentiment to the cashmere colored fancy label, then adhere it to the gold glitter layer.
7. Adhere the sentiment label to the upper left corner of the card, then accent with the bow.
8. Add the diecut lady to the right side of the card with foam tape.
9. Finish by accenting the middle of the bow with an iridescent jewel.

 I used a little bit of tulle to finish off her apron, which I think is such a fun touch! I love the little added texture it gives the card. As you can see by the instructions above, there is A LOT of diecutting on this card! Lol. But I love how it turned out! I did want to mention that most of the cardstock I used on the lady were scraps, so I don't have the exact colors for you. Just use something you have on hand if you want to recreate it! :)

That is everything I have for you today! If you have any questions about my card, feel free to leave them in the comments and I will be sure to reply.
Before you move along with your day, I wanted to invite you to follow me on social media. I would love to be crafty friends!

Have a great rest of your Saturday!
