The One with the Spellbinders Lilly of the Valley Card Project


Hello everyone. Today I have a project using the Spellbinders Lilly of the Valley die set by Susan Tierney-Cockburn. I was inspired to create this card based on one of my favorite video games, Animal Crossing New Horizons. In this game when you reach the level of five stars you are given a special Lily of the Valley flower as a trophy of sorts, hence the sentiment "you will always be five stars to me". 

To check out more from Susan and the Spellbinders team (CLICK HERE!) and visit the website to shop and to find inspiration. 

This card is simple but the dies can be a little tedious to handle due to their size. Once you cut out all of the pieces in the Lilly of the Valley die set, you shape them with a round ball tool. I used my scoring tool that has a small and medium ball on the two ends. I followed Susan's video that you can watch (CLICK HERE!) to assembly the flowers. Once they were assembled I adhered them onto my background panel using liquid glue. 

For the background I used an old embossing folder by Stampin' Up! to emboss the triangular trees that mimics the look of the designs of the animal crossing game art. 

The sentiment was created in Photoshop and printed out. Once I printed it out, I trimmed it down using my paper trimmer and popped it up using foam adhesive to give it dimension. 

I can't wait to send this card to one of my crafty friends that I play Animal Crossing online with. In fact, I may make several and send them to all of my gaming buddies. 

I hope that I've inspired you to create something today. To check out more from Spellbinders (CLICK HERE!).
