Spellbinders Grand Decorative Labels One Birthday Card

Things have been quite hectic and very stressful for me in the last 10 weeks having been preoccupied taking care of my other business. The only therapy that somehow helped me relax is letting myself float back in my creativity zone. I have not done much crafting since I finished my Christmas cards last November which made me miss it so much. And once I got the momentum back, I just went on a roll. I got so inspired creating the previous card, the Spellbinders Grand Labels One birthday card and went on to create another version of the framed card using the Decorative Elements of the Labels One. I created this beautiful distressed mono chromatic blue card for my nieces Malaya and Lualhati who both love the color blue. I also made another one for my friend Agnes. I'm so in love with manual die cutting now. I just love all these dies that I have collected and I can't stop staring at the beautiful diecuts with the perfect intricate cuts and exquisite embossed impression. The beautiful designs of the metal dies make it so easy and intuitive in creating a new card design.

For the base of the card, I used the Labels One die to create a two-fold hinged card, click here for the written instructions.

I used the same sentiment tag on the previous card so I did not include the details for this layer here.

Happy crafting!
