Spellbinders - Radiant Rectangles

 When Spellbinders came out with their latest release I just knew I had to have Radiant Rectangles!  I have been using it like crazy lately!  I was inspired by a blogger named Elly I found on Pinterest HERE.  Her work is stunning!

If you use patterned paper with this die it should be simple with a small pattern.  I chose Graphic 45's Secret Garden's small purple print.  The most difficult part of making this card was cutting and putting all the foam tape on the backside of the die cuts.
Finished size is 6 3/8 x 4 3/8.

 Here is a second card I made with some roses and leaf sprays from MFT.  The ink and paper colors really do match in person.  They look 'off' in the picture.

 Here is a closeup of the roses in the center of the card.  
Both of these cards would make great Mother's Day cards.
Finished size is 6 x 4.
  • Stamps: None!
  • Ink: Distress - Tattered Roses
  • Paper: Neenah Classic Crest - Natural White, SU! Blushing Bride, Graphic 45 - Secret Garden
  • Dies: Spellbinders - Radiant Rectangles, MFT - Rolled Roses, Medium Leafy Flourish, OH My! Crafts -  Butterfly
  • Other: Pearls

Beautiful cards. My attention to Radiant Rectangles was caught on Becca Feeken's blog and the desire to own it is only heightened by seeing your cards. TFS
