Spellbinders Small Die of the Month January 2019 | First Crush

Today I am sharing a card created using the Spellbinders Small Die of the Month Club. This kit allows you to put together a cute little paper doll and it comes with lots of options so that you can make a really unique character. It also comes with dies to make a cute little heart balloon.


I cut out all of the pieces for my doll from different colors of cardstock. I used a piece of patterned paper for the dress. I also cut out the balloon and sting.


I used Gina K Connect glue to put my paper doll together. I decided to make a 4x8 card base for this design and I popped up a blue piece of cardstock onto that. I glued down my paper doll to the card. I also added the heart balloon.


Using a T-Square ruler and a white gel pen I added a frame around the doll. For my sentiment I stamped the ‘hugs’ stamp from the Floral Love stamp set onto some dark gray cardstock. I stamped it with Versamark ink and embossed it in Alabaster white embossing powder. I cut the sentiment into a strip and popped it up on the side of the card.


For the finishing touched on the card I first went over the balloon with Glossy Accents to give it some dimension. Next I added some cute puffy heart stickers around the sentiment. I used a white gel pen to add some details and highlights to the paper doll. Finally I created a fun wavy swirl design along the background using my white gel pen, some small clear star sequins, and a Wink of Stella glitter brush.
