Plant Joy Card with Spellbinders Half Slimline Diamond Dies

I’m making an any occasion card today. It would make a beautiful Easter card…just substitute the words on this card with “Happy Easter!” I used the new dies from Spellbinders called: Half Slimline Diamond Dies from the Layered Fleur Boquet Slimline Collection available now. As you probably guessed from the name of the dies, this card is a slimline card, which measures 3.5″ x 8.5″. I just trimmed an 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of cardstock to 7 inches along the 11 inch side and then scored it at 3.5″.

These dies can be used to inlay the cut or you can use the “cut-out” die that comes in the set to cut the design out (which is what I did for this card) and adhere the pieces to another piece of cardstock or specialty paper. In this case, I adhered it to some gold vellum.

The set comes with the words, “Plant Joy.” I cut them out of the same dark purple that I used for the decorative die and I also cut it from black cardstock and adhered the purple and black layers together with the black slightly askew so it creates a shadow for the words.

Finally, I die cut some flowers and their centers to dress up the front of the card. The flower dies are also from Spellbinders. I subscribed to the card kit of the month last year, and this one was the August 2021 card kit called, “Art School,” which had dies to cut out these 3 sizes of flowers as well as an art pallet and paint tubes and brushes (which I didn’t use). I used the light purple cardstock to cut out the flowers and some yellow cardstock for the centers.
