I am so excited to share my cute card ideas for my very first blog! I’ve been playing around with the Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Paisley Set. You wouldn’t believe all the fun ideas that you can do with Paisley! I would have never guessed it if I hadn’t sat down and thought: “Hmm… what else can I do with this die?”
So I started thinking about this and playing with the set while my husband made me sit and watch a movie with him ( I can’t just sit!), and here’s what I came up with!
My first card is Ahoy Matey.
I used the DCWV All About Boys Mat Stack , found the ship and thought that a whale would look cute with it! The whale and water spray is made from the three smallest dies in the Classic Paisley set. For the tail I just took a notch out of the paisley and that was all I did for a whale! For the title I used Quickutz Banana Split Alphabet. This card would be perfect for a baby boy birth announcement, birthday invitation or birthday card for a boy. You could even use it for a cheerful get well or just say HI card. I may decide to ditch the card and put it on a scrapbook page!
My second is the Latte Flower Card:
For this card I used both the DCWV Latte Mat Stack and DCWV Latte Solid Cardstock Mat Stack. The scalloped window is the largest of the Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Ovals Small die Set. The flower and leaves are made up with the smallest of the Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Paisley Set. The center is made from the smallest of the Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Paisley Set. The stem was just hand cut with scissors. I thought this would be a fabulous all occasion card!
