Spellbinders | Monthly Club Kits | May Card Kit 2018

May 2018 Card Kit of the Month

The May 2018 Card Kit of the Month from Spellbinders is available and is chock-a-block full of crafting goodness!  Each kit contains everything you need to create 10 lovely cards.  Spellbinders -  ready to create when you are!


10 cards & 10 envelopes; 10 sheets of 8.25 x 11" paper/cardstock; Set of 6 dies; Ribbons; Tags, Gemstones/Sequins;  Felted die cut circle; Flowers & Embellishments; Sentiment Stickers; Roll of double-sided adhesive; and 12 foam squares.   Virtually everything you need to craft all month long!


I have a number of cards to show you today.  So let's get started!   I cut the embroidery hoop from gold mirrored paper and placed it on top of one of the patterned paper folk art images - look at the dimension that provided!   Using the large bloom die that comes with the kit, I cut out several flowers and leaves using colored cardstock also provided in the kit, and placed them around the hoop.  I chose a sentiment and backed it with dimensional adhesive. Blue gemstones and a golden butterfly cut using another die in the kit finish the card.  So simple, so pretty!

From Folk Art designs to Birthdays and Weddings, the Spellbinders May 2018 Card Kit contains enough card crafting supplies for all the important events this spring - even a simple Hello!  

I was able to put together wide stripes and add sentiments with no problems - because no stamping is necessary (unless you'd like to add some of your old time favorites).   And honestly, I just couldn't resist that beautiful gold mirrored paper!  Ooh la la!!

Creating on the angle with the gorgeous colored cardstock and strips of mirrored gold paper was easy-peasy - what a dream!  And don't you love the faux wood ephemera?  The sheet of sentiments has something for every occasion.

There are two dies in this card kit that I love - One is an embroidery hoop, and the other is a nice round circle die that nests inside.  I found the small circle die perfectly cuts out one of the Folk Art images from the patterned pattern.  I've cut one to show you how easy it was to create the look of embroidery within the hoop.  I added some flowers that I sponged with ink, some pretty sequins, a strip of mirrored gold paper and those cute sentiment tickets - pretty awesome in my book!  Wouldn't this card be lovely for St. Patricks Day?!

Weddings and Anniversaries are on my mind.  We have a 50th Golden Wedding Anniversary coming up in October!  Where has the time gone?   I am married to an amazing man - generous, kind, and fair.   A man of true character, and we couldn't be happier together!

My last card is a clean and simple, vibrant and beautiful card using the embroidery hoop again as a base and cutting enough blooms in all the colors of the May 2018 Card Kit.  The golden butterfly perches on the blooms for a quick stop to smell the flowers.   Some gemstones and a sentiment finish the card.   The Spellbinders May 2018 Card Kit - We love to see you smile!

  1. I love looking at your work, thank you for sharing these.

    1. Thank you, Mary (she smiles). I loved creating with this card kit. I think you'd love it too.

  2. This would last me a lot longer than a month! What a gorgeous collection and your cards... well, beyond beautiful and packed with creativity. I do adore folk art and used to do a lot of embroidery, so that combo is very appealing to me. Your first card... sigh... You finished up this artful display with such a pretty and colorful wreath. Each card is masterful. You've been very busy, Susie!

  3. Thank you so much, Leslie! You’re correct, this kit will last a long time! I still have ideas. I really enjoy this type of card making. It’s relaxing and a lot of fun.

  4. Nice knowledge gaining article. This post is really the best on this valuable topic.
