Fall Sneak Peek Blog hop for Crafters Home Day One



Join Spellbinders™ Paper Arts and Crafters Home as we celebrate a Fall Sneak Peek!
Spellbinders and participating stores in the Crafters Home Buying Group are excited to introduce three new die template sets sold exclusively through Crafters Home stores through January! You’ll have to wait until February to find these die template designs in non-member stores. 
These new dies are in stock! Get yours now at a participating Crafters Home store! See the Spellbinders Blog for a list of participating stores.
 
Visit the Spellbinders Blog November 14 - 16 to see a new Spellbinders die template revealed each day! Visit designer blogs to enter the daily contests and see inspiring projects using the new releases. Comment on Designers Blogs and the Spellbinders Blog count as entries into daily drawings. Daily winners receive all three of the new designs!

Today's new die is S4-341 Wavy Rectangles
 $24.99  
1: 3/8 x ½”
2: 1 1/8 x 1 ¼”
3: 1 7/8 x 2 1/8
4: 2 ¾ x 3 1/8”
5. 3 5/8 x 4 ¼”

For my card, I used the E8-001 Classic Scallop Edgeabilities for my card base and the S4-341 Wavy Rectangles for the focal image.  I cut out the center of the patterned paper, and then cut and embossed a ivory piece of cardstock to place where the negative space was.  I stamped the image, and colored in the stars with the atyou pen to add some sparkle. I adhered the patterned paper frame using Foam Squares to pop it up off the card. 



SKU: E8-001

Funny card - love the sentiment. Thanks for the details. I was trying to figure out if you cut out a window or if you stamped on a separate piece of cardstock...and you did both!
