My Cards on the Spellbinders Blog

How special to see my cards on the Spellbinders blog yesterday! 

Spellbinders featured the new Edgeabilities on the blog.    Here's a link if you missed it!

How to use the new Edgeabilities Die Templates! on Spellbinders' Blog.

I mixed and matched many of the new Edgeabilitiesto create these cards!  The Edgeabilities™ are so versatile! All these designs can be mixed because the sizing is in 1" increments for all the pieces. Just imagine the possibilities!!!! There are over 70 combinations!

The directions for all the cards are available from Spellbinders.  The Spellbinders blog post of July 14 (link above) has links to them all!  I'm not going to give the directions here.  I've added a brief description with a few details with each card below.

On the friendship card, I used the Edgeabilities
on the edges of the pearlescent cream mat and the navy one, too!  This takes a little extra effirt to align them and tape to hold them in place while cutting!  The results are so unique!  I had fun with it!

The directions for all the cards are accessible from the Spellbinders Blog posting from July 14.  You can access it from the link at the beginning of this post.

I cut a scalloped edge with a decorative accent for this card.  A very easy and simple application of the Edgeabilities.  It adds so much to this simple card design.  For an even more elegant presentation of this card, cut the envelope flap to match!

This card is definitely more involved.  The edge however isn't hard to duplicate.  I cut a scallop edge and the half flowers on a strip of navy card stock.  It's layered over a cream strip which also has a scalloped edge.  The top edge is straight.  I layered it over a strip of MME stripe paper.  Then I added the "negative" strip of cream paper behind the stripe.  It's the reverse of the scallop edge!  None of it is hard to cut, it's just several layers!
For all the directions, go to the Spellbinders Blog post of July 14.

For this birthday card, I ceated a decorative panel by cutting multiple designs into it.  I started in the center and moved out on both sides.  To cut the flowers in the center, I cut a length of the "half" flowers.  Then I laid the Edgeabilities the opposite way and lined up the center holes.  Lots of tape to hold the die template in place while I cut!  Next I cut the diamond/circle strips.  I've added a strip of deep pink behind to add a different color.  Next, the flowers again and finally the scallop edge.  I cut a cream mat with scalloped edges to layer behind.  The dark pink scallops are just strips added at the edge.  The little navy points between the scallops are the "negative" left from cutting the scallop edge on flower piece.  I adhered them behind so that just the points are visible.

Thanks for visiting!
Have a great day!
