9 Cards 1 Kit | Spellbinders Kit of the Month April 2020

April 12, 2020

Hello everyone,  I hope you are doing well!

"Weekend Fun" the Spellbinders Craft Kit of this Month  - May 2020 landed on my door here in the Scottish Highlands and I have nine cards and a couple of ideas to share with you.

First,  I want to invite you to use the cardstock in the kit to create extra card bases and to emboss only their front panel.

This is an excellent canvas for your cards as it adds a beautiful texture and a touch of elegance that you might not want to fully cover.

Easy Layout Over Embossed Card Base

  • This 5x5 inches card base.
  • A good card size to use Floral Splash Cut and Emboss Folder.
  • As this is a 5x7 inches embossing folder it will emboss the whole panel of the card. 
  • You will need a large format (A4) die cutting machine to emboss only the front panel of the card base using 5x7 inches embossing folders.
Once you have the card base done, then you can use the die set, stickers die-cut shapes and embellishments included in the kit to create easy layouts
  • For the sentiment, I use a sticker that says "We are stronger, funnier, happier, crazier together".  I glue it over a rectangular piece of gold cardstock and foam mounted on the card base.
  • Then, I added all the elements around it.

Easy Striped Card Sketch 

  • This simple card sketch is a good starting point to create clean and simple compositions.
  • It will allow you to easily mass-produce cards 100% made using supplies in the kit.
  • It will also allow you to use the paper included in the kit with minimum waste.

Top Tips


  • For a better finish, use the double-sided tape to adhere scrapbook paper to the card bases. Liquid glue can generate air bubbles under the paper or it can also make it stiff and bulky.
  • Use the sentiments in the stamp set to stamp over the paper lines, on the paper or below the paper lines to complete your design.
  • Avoid overthink, I'm trying to practice this more often.
  • Remember that less is more. You don't need to cover the whole panel of your card.

That's all for today.

I hope you like these ideas.

Happy Crafting

  1. I like the idea on how to use up the patterned paper. I always end up with tons and never too sure how to incorporate them.
