Hi Crafty Friends and welcome back! Today I have a lovely card featuring the new Spellbinders Stitching Die of the Month Club. I like that this card took a masculine turn, and I think it’s perfect for my son’s birthday on Monday.
I began by selecting colors using my Color Cubes. After selecting three different color combinations at random, I selected the one that spoke to me most. I love the blues with black and dark taupe. I didn’t have a taupe cardstock, and so I selected a gray with a touch of brown in it.
Then I die cut the different blues, and stitched with silver thread. After deciding on the sentiment and middle colors, I embossed the grey background panel using a previously released embossing folder of the month club, and layered the background pieces.
I die cut the FOR YOU letters from brushed silver cardstock, and then layered four gray die cuts for dimension. Next, I glued the blue stitched petals together, and then popped up with foam tape. Finally, I added foam tape to the middle die cut, and adhered sequins.
What do you think? I love how quickly this card came together, and that it lends itself to a masculine look. Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. Love and crafty hugs!
