I've created 2 projects for you to demonstrate the versatility of Spellbinders Labels 47 and Labels 47 Decorative Elements die templates. Whether you are just learning to paper craft or you are a paper artist with advanced skill and experience, Spellbinders die templates are an excellent way to empower you to explore your creative genius! Always experiment and challenge yourself to go beyond your dreams and your artwork will be amazing!
This card uses Labels 47 and Labels 47 Decorative Elements and while it looks complicated it isn't, really. It is about layering up pieces of paper. That's it. I cut apart the large frame from Labels 47 Decorative Elements to create additional filagree elements. The sentiment was cut out using A2 Valiant Honor, which I think compliments the intricate cuts from Labels 47 Decorative Elements quite nicely.Cut 8”x12” grey rectangle and score across the width at 6” down the long edge to create a 8”x6” card base. Cut 5 ½” x 7 ½” square of ivory cardstock, 5 3/8”x7 3/8” skyline cardstock, 5 1/8”x 7 1/8” ivory rectangle, 5”x7” pattern paper rectangle. Adhere the layers, apply ribbon, and adhere to card base.

My second project using Labels 47 and Labels 47 Decorative Elements has a more spring or Easter theme to it.
As I was looking at the Labels 47 Decorative Elements, it occurred to me that the inset die (shown here under the star gazer lilies) looked like the wire mesh lids used on beautiful vintage rose bowls. From this thought, I was inspired to use the die in a similar fashion as both a functional and creative element for my card.
I invite you to return to my blog on December 17th for a tutorial to create this lovely spring card.
