Great, Big, Wonderful World - new Spellbinders collection

Hi there friends!   Today I want to share a new Spellbinders collection from Sharyn Sowell with you. It's called Great, Big, Wonderful World....and its full of really fun and unique dies!

The whole collection can be seen HERE.

I used the Shapeabilities Peace Begins Here die.  This is a large, intricate die that cuts out a GORGEOUS piece.

I have a few cards to share with you today.  These are cards, but really they are so intricate and delicate that they would look pretty just sitting out on your desk.  In fact, mine is in my work office...its a pretty reminder.

Both cards were created the same way.  The card design is my own.  I wanted the beautiful silhouette to stand out from the card, so I created a little ledge at the bottom of the front of my card.

For the black die cut, I created a dramatic ink blended background to put behind the die cut piece.  It's almost glowing, and it is really pretty.  In order to keep the die cut attached, I cut a very small strip of card stock and folded it and tucked it behind the die cut, and attached to the card.  It gives the illusion of it floating in front of the card panel.

The other card was made the same way, but I made the card out of black card stock, and die cut the gorgeous die from a light turquoise card stock.  I used an ink blending brush to color the die cut in different areas.

That's all for today!   I've linked the entire collection below (affiliate links used at no cost to you...THANK YOU for your support!)
