This is an older set of Spellbinder label dies, but I still find them extremely useful. There are three separate dies which are all approximately the same size. As you can see below, they take up a good portion of an A2 card.  The background paper is black print on distressed tan which has been dry embossed and sanded. We then used a finger dauber to colour the white raised design with Distress Ink in Broken China. We did use Swiss Dots embossing folder on the blue strip on the right side of the card. Joining the tan to the blue, we've used a strip of black houndstooth printed tape from Little B. Love these little rolls that are only 3 mm wide. They add a great accent!

Speaking of accents, these rhinestone/pearl blossoms and butterflies are great addition to any of your projects. All the beads in one blossom are connected by one glue-dot, for easy placement. We have used one of these flowers just below the Happy Birthday on the card above. A great assortment to have on hand at $4.50 a package.
