I am excited to be participating in the Spellbinders™ Spring Blog Hop today. My assignment was to create a card with two or more of the gorgeous Classic Insert 4 dies. I love the look the inserts create along with the Classic Edge dies. But I had never used them without a cutting edge. I used all three insert dies without a cutting edge and I really like how it turned out.

Spellbinders Paper Arts Supply List:

Cross Promotional Partner:

I started by laying down the card base on my base plate. I arranged the Classic Decorative Inserts Four dies over the bottom of the back of the card base. (I placed the the back of the card underneath the dies, because the inserts are 8″ long. The way I arranged the dies I had to place them the long way on the base plate. Since the card base is 11″ long, it wouldn’t fit any other way).

I folded the card front over the dies and cut and embossed the card front.

A piece of My Mind’s Eye™ On The Bright Side Two was cut and embossed with the second largest Floral Oval die. A piece of white cardstock was cut and embossed with the second largest Classic Oval Small die. The white oval was stamped with a sentiment from Flourishes Life Lines and adhered over the patterned paper oval.

Ribbon was tied around the card front above the embossed part. A button was tied on over the bow with embroidery thread before the sentiment layers were adhered to the card front with SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ 3D Foam Squares.

A piece of white cardstock was cut with a die from the Wonderful Wings pack. Want2Scrap Wonderful Wings Bling was adhered over the cardstock butterfly before it was adhered to the lower edge of the oval panels.
