I’m making a slimline card for Father’s Day using the new Spellbinders dies called, “Mini Color Block Crosses.” There are two small dies in this set and they are very inexpensive, but you can do so much with them. They sent me these dies and asked me to create with them. I was more than happy to do so.
These dies have a geometric design, which makes them so versatile. The possibilities are virtually limitless when it comes to color choice and layout design. You can stack them and lay them out side by side or in a staggered, random, or repeating pattern. You can use all of them or just some of them. You can use a mono-chromatic color scheme or choose more of a contrasting color scheme.

I chose to go with using only some of the die cuts with a mono-chromatic color scheme in a repeated pattern layout. For the greeting, I used a stamp set that was released by Spellbinders just recently this year called, “Sentiments for You.” The ink is versa-fine black onyx.
I created a pocket in this card and inserted a piece of frosted white vellum which you can see in the image above through the “windows” I created on the card using one of the dies from the Spellbinders Mini Color Block Crosses dies. It was an easy thing to do and you can watch the video of the cardmaking process is below:
