Today I am using Spellbinders LF-190 Grand Labels Four die template set to create a couple of quick, easily-reproducible projects for you! This set of six GRAND die templates ranges from 5-1/4" to 9-3/8" long!
I used the fifth die template (from the inside - second to largest) to make a card that fits exactly in an A2 envelope. It's my new take on a gable card that has the opening down the center front of the card. It was quick and easy to cut with my new Grand Calibur! Since the plates are so large, you can easily cut all of your die templates at one time! Bundle up a set up these and you have a unique gift that will be appreciated.
Open it to see the full Grand Labels Four die template! If your die template is 8" long, score your card 2" (one-fourth of the length) from each end and you instantly have your card base!
What do you buy that guy that has everything? I kept the embellishments to a minimum on my next project so it can be used in the workplace or a men's office. It's a bookend cozy! That's right - I took an old metal bookend and made a little removable cover with my Grand Labels Four die templates! This time I used the largest, second largest, plus the smallest die templates in the set, so you can see the size progression. I love having the choice of six sizes - there's always a size to fit my project! At just around $8.00 per die template, you can't beat the value!
This closeup shows why I love Spellbinders over other die templates (besides the value, the great designs, the embossing....ha!). See the vintage shadow that is inked just inside the embossed border? Spellbinders' open-faced templates allow you to stencil the 'face' of your project with inks, chalks....your favorite medium. I used another die template in the Antiquities set - the Fleur di Lis (yum!) cut from the Copper craft foil this time.
Here's a more feminine version of the Bookend Cozy. It's so simple - come back tomorrow for complete instructions.
