Hello, hi! I’m sharing a card today that showcases the July Small Die of the Month and the Clear Stamp of the Month sets from Spellbinders – it’s a coordinating pair, so you subscribers who get both will be doubly happy!

The stamp set is called Sending Floral Wishes and includes 7 sentiments, a large floral bouquet and a small flower sprig, and three of the sentiments in particular coordinate with the Decorative Mini Slimline Card Creator Dies set.
To make my card, I began by die cutting the front fold of a mini slimline card by lining up my die with a folded card base. I knew I wanted the back fold to extend past the front slightly so that you could see some color on the inside of the card.
After die cutting the front, I stamped the large floral arrangement from the July Clear Stamp of the Month set on the front with Copic-friendly ink and colored it in. Then, matching ink to the pink flowers, I ombre-ink blended the inside of the card, with the darkest edge visible from the front.
Next, I positioned the “for you” die on the front of the card to match the die cut flourish of the card front, and die cut the opening. Because of the ink blending on the inside, the die cut opening is more impactful. Then I stamped the birthday greeting from the stamp set on the inside of the card.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
