Hemmed In Prayer
Hi everyone! I have another fun card to share with you....I just LOVE to make shaped cards with Spellbinder dies and my Grand Calibur! Since I have a Spellbinders Wizard, which I totally love, I don't use my Grand Calibur every day, however, when it comes to cutting out both layers of a card, the Grand Calibur is da-bomb! For this card, I cut a 5 x 10 piece of cardstock, scored it at 5" and folded it as if I were making a regular square card, then taped one of the Grand Labels One dies to the card so that the top (fold) edge would still be attached after it was cut. The "patchwork" layer was made by punching squares out of three different patterns from the Bo Bunny 'Gabrielle' paper pack, sponging the edges, then adhering them to a piece of cardstock. Once they were adhered, I used the next smallest Grand Labels One die to cut and emboss the panel, then paper pierced, added May Arts Watermelon ribbon and crocheted lace (unknown company), Zva Creative Pearls, 'Pearl' Glimmer Mist, and the sentiment panel which was stamped with "Weave In Faith - the Full of Grace Collection" and cut out with an ODBD's Elegant Ovals die.
