What You Need

You Will Need:

  • Spellbinders Four Seasons Silhouette Die Set
  • Spellbinders Four Seasons Seasonal Words Die Set
  • 7” x 7” White blank base card
  • General white cardstock
  • Watercolour pens or pencils
  • Watercolour brush & water
  • Create & Craft Tape Pen
  • Wet glue
  • Scissors or trimmer to create the base layer on the card

Instructions:

  1. Die-cut 4 plain bases from the plain square die in the Spellbinders Four Seasons Silhouette die set in white card.

  2. Die-cut each of the silhouette dies from the Spellbinders Four Seasons Silhouette die set in white card.

  3. Die-cut all 4 of the seasons from the Spellbinders Seasonal word die set in white card.

  4. Using your watercolour pens/pencils, give the plain bases and the word die-cuts a wash of colour. I simply washed the colour through the centre of each base in seasonal colours and then matched the word die-cuts in the same colour. I applied the colour heavier at the top of the word to produce an ombre effect.

  5. Lightly watercolour the 4 silhouette die-cuts, picking out the colours to suit each of the seasons. Leave a proportion of the silhouette white.

  6. Create a matt layer using the pale blue cardstock for the 7” x 7” base card.

  7. Take the cut out silhouette and the matching coloured base. (I used green for spring, pink for summer, orange for autumn, and pale blue for winter.)

  8. Attach the silhouette die-cut over the top of the solid base.

  9. You will then have 4 mini silhouettes.

  10. Start adding the elements to the card. I started with the spring word, then the spring silhouette.

  11. Add the summer wording and silhouette.

  12. Then add the autumn silhouette and wording.

  13. Finally, add the winter silhouette and wording.

  14. Your card is finished!
