I created two cards to share with you today using this super cute new set! The first one is a foldable box card that fits easily into a 5″x7″ envelope. The base itself would fold to easily fit into a standard A2 sized envelope but I added a bunch of flowers that added more space. You can be as extravagant or as minimal as you like!
** For the base of my card, simply cut two pieces of Spellbinders Waterfall Card Stock to 5.25″ long and 2″ tall. I scored this piece at 3.25″ and 4.75″ to allow room for a .5″ tab on each piece to glue these pieces together. Once attached, I had a small rectangular shaped base that measure 3.25″ long, 1.5″ wide, and 2″ tall. I then simply glued a typewriter to both the front and back of my base to make it look 3D. I did not decorate the back typewriter and left it plain. **
The fun part about this card (aside from the fact that it’s 3D) is that the note in the middle can slide out for a hidden “typed” message! I used the dies in the set to create a simple sentiment that says “A Note To Say Thanks.”
All of the card stock colors that I used are listed in the links below. I also added a few white accents using a Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen.
For my second card, I wanted to show what this set would look like on a standard A2 sized card (4.25″ x 5.5″). I lightly blended a mix of Picked Raspberry and Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide Inks for my background and splattered this section with some diluted Opaque White Paint for some added interest.
I used 3D Foam Adhesive Tape to adhere my typewriter, giving it some extra dimension. To add my flowers, I simply used liquid adhesive and again added a few white accents with a white gel pen.
