Tiptoe Through The Tulips!

Hi, everybody!

Are you ready for another Wednesday inspiration today?  I sure hope so!  Today I want to show you just how beautiful your cards can be by using just 2 amazing Spellbinder dies, the Spellbinders Floral Oval and the Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Borders Two.  Both of these are among my favorites & should be in your collection too!

I began today's card by cutting a 6 inch card from white cardstock. I also cut a 6 inch square from red gingham. I decided which edge I wanted on my finished card & put that edge along the very bottom of the red gingham square & cut it. I used that same edge on the white cardstock next.  I also ran another piece of gingham through with the same edge die I used on the bottom.  Along with that, I chose one of the cutouts in the die set and cut that in white. By layering and alternating your border edges, you can come up with any number of beautiful edges to any card.


Here is a close up of just how beautiful your bottom edge will be.  And remember, with the number of dies included in this set, you can vary this and end up with a ton of different looks!

For my card, I colored a digi from Power Poppy, but if coloring is not your thing, you can simply substitute a beautiful sentiment for the image.

I hope you have already checked out the inspirations from Mikha & Darlene and will come back tomorrow & Friday to check out Robin & Alicia's beautiful creations.

Don't forget we also have a Dies R Us Challenge Blog!  Head on over there for a chance to win a prize!
And crafters, you just HAVE to head off to the Dies R Us Store!  We are adding so many new product lines every week that it is just hard to keep up with them!

I'll see you again next Wednesday!  Have a happy, relaxing week & go create something spectacular!
