Hello!  I'm keeping busy creating in my crafty area... how about you?  Today I'm popping in with two cards that I made using the Spellbinders April Add-on die set called Even More Sentiments Etched die set.  This die set works back to several Spellbinders die kit of the month sets including the April Small Die Kit, the April Large Die Kit and the November 2018 Large Die Kit.  I subscribe to the small die kit, but unfortunately I don't have my kit yet.  However using other Spellbinders products that I already have I created two cards using the die set.  First up is a card that I think could be used for several different occasions.  I combined the die that says 'so sweet' with a butterfly, flower and leaves that I foiled using my Glimmer Hot Foil System and pink foil.   The little stamped sentiment is from a Spellbinders sentiment stamp set.   I used a Spellbinders classic rectangle die, cut from white cardstock as my backdrop for the butterfly, flower, leaves and sentiments.  The die set includes eight sentiments and then a rectangular label that allows you to die cut the sentiments and then die cut a backing for the sentiment should to decide to do that.  I die cut the sentiment from pink cardstock and the label from white and adhered them together.  I created a card base using the same pink cardstock used to cut the sentiment and then layered up all the elements.

The second card is more masculine in feel, but I think it would work for both guys and gals even though it has a butterfly on it!  I used the Sedona emboss and cut folder and embossed some light gray cardstock.  I then die cut the sentiment grateful from teal cardstock, cut it out with the label die and then die cut a backing label from white cardstock.  The two were then adhered together.  I looked through my little box of goodies and found some Spellbinders butterfly stickers that were part of the Stay Wild card kit that I purchased several months ago.  I found one that worked well with the gray and teal and adhered that to the center of the embossed panel that I had trimmed down to fit the card front.   The sentiment was then adhered over the butterfly.  I created a card base using the same gray cardstock as the embossed panel and then adhered the panel.

Here is a photo of the two cards together:

 If you haven't tried out the Spellbinders clubs yet, you really should.  They are a really great value!

Thanks for stopping by, stay safe and have a wonderful day!

Oh wow, Rosemary--love these! The pink & white with foiling grabs my heart, of course! But how you used the butterfly sticker & the Cut N Emboss panel for your second card is fabulous! It could definitely go to a guy or a gal!

A lovely butterfly duo, Rosemary ... the pink one is so soft and delicate ... and the background texture on the grey one is brilliant, positively touchable! Hugs, Anita :)
