Hi there! Today’s video shares how to create four clean and simple cards using dies, embellishments, and cardstock from the Spellbinders Monthly Subscription Kits for August.

For the first card example, I used dies from the Card Kit to create a focal point on my card front. I also used Distress Oxides to blend a soft background and add some color variation to the foliage. After everything was adhered, I added some Nuvo Drops in groups around the scene and on the sentiment for some added dimension and embellishment.
On the second card, I used some of the paper rose embellishments from the kit to create a simple yet stunning effect. They were a bit too bulky to add at first, however I peeled back the petals and flattened them a bit to make it work on the card. To finish off the card, I adhered the flowers down around another die cut sentiment using brads that were included (I may have also added some Nuvo Drops :))
To create the third card, I used the four intricate dies from the Die Of The Month Kit and colored them using Copic Markers and a Blender Pen to get a nice soft color. Then, I added them onto a cardbase with foam tape and added a Hello die cut sentiment. To add some extra detail, I used some Metallic Silver Nuvo Drops in some of the small pierced holes to get a fun dimensional look.
For the last card, I only used two of the dies from the die kit to create a fun and simple border card. I blended some color onto the dies using CTMH inks and added them onto the side of my card.
