Spellbinders Curved Border Cards

a Cut at Home Design Team Project

Spellbinders has a fantastic collection of dies called Borderabilities Card Creator - Curved Border. They add that extra decorative edge to a plain card base.  There's lots of sets to choose from and you can combine any number of dies to create you own decorative design.  This set includes 7 dies in the set.

On the inside I continued the look of Tim Holtz idea-ology paper collection Wallflower.  By slicing the paper along the edge of the flowers you can create a pocket to house a tag, I added colored seam binding and a charm to the one shown here.

This is the card we'll create step-by-step in the video below.  You can see how different the edge looks by changing up the dies.  I fussy cut the butterflies from the Wallflower papers, added some Wink of Stella glitter, Glossy Accents on the body and hand drawn antenna.  Joy!Crafts, creates this wonderful card stand die.

On the inside of this card I used an acrylic sentiment from Cloud 9, a gift from Papercrafter45.  Using EK Success's Deco Scallop Edger on both sides of a think strip of Core'dinations Aegean cardstock creates this little border strip across the Webster's Pages lace trim.

On this card I've combined 3 of the 7 dies to create this beautiful border edge.   I also fussy cut sections of  Sizzix's Floral Vine with Bird embossed mat.  By using just a smidge of Tim Holtz Distress ink in Victorian Velvet I was able to bring the embossing to the forefront and match the paper behind.  The flower is cut from Spellbinder's Die D-Lites Blooms Two.  

Using just a piece of the border this becomes the mat for my inside sentiment.
