Spellbinders Small Die of The Month (A Set of Cards)

Hello friends!

This die set comes with many sentiment and it was easy to create a set of cards with the Spellbinders Embossing Folders. The inking was done with Gelli Plate and Distress Oxide. You may find my previous post here if you miss it. Don't forget to join the "Show & Share" (top right side bar) , so our fellow card-makers can check out your latest creations.

 With the Embossing Folders (all listed at the end of this post), you can use any sentiment that suits the occasion.

As you can see, I also added some tiny dot details in the leaf sections.

Do not ever be afraid to use vibrant colors for the card front. Look how this turned out!

I was once intimidated by the inky way of using Gelli Plate.  After watching several You Tube videos about it, I finally decided to jump in and get busy....  After experimenting with it in applying all sorts of colors, I am quite pleased that I found another way with the Gelli Plate.
