The Magic of Spellbinders

As you may know, ItsyBitsy recently introduced Spellbinders Dies at the store. Spellbinders can very easily be called the very best dies in the world and we're stocking 48 wonderful options. They come in a variety of different designs and have fabulous capabilities - you can cut, emboss and stencil with them making them extremely versatile and giving you great value for your buck. In keeping with our Two's Company theme this month, I have made a card and envelope both using the Spellbinders Kaleidoscope Pendant Die

The card I've made is pretty straightforward, what I really had fun with was the envelope. I am a firm believer in matching envelopes so with this one I really went town and this awesome Spellbinders Kaleidoscope was my vehicle.

This is the other side of the envelope. Isn't it gorgeous how the card design is incorporated on the envelope flap? Love it love it love it. The great thing about this die is that it had 3 complementary components and I made sure to incorporate all of them in my entire project. 

This is how the pair looks when you turn the envelope around. Striking and attractive, wouldn't you agree. Watch this space for a tutorial on this project where I will show you in detail, how I made that gorgeous envelope flap.

Hope you all are excited about our Two's Company Challenge. We've got 9 fantastic entries so far and looking forward to seeing many more from you talented crafters! Also be sure to enter our Facebook Photo Contest to win an awesome Rotary Cutter with mat. Sathya's entry is in the lead and we've got just about 16 days to go!
