Spellbinders Diamond Anniversary: Sneak Peek and Giveaway - Day 4

Welcome to day 4 of the Spellbinders Summer Sneak Peek and Giveaway! The dies that have been shown  over these past four days are slated for release at the upcoming Craft and Hobby Association Paper Arts show in Atlanta, Georgia. I am excited to get to introduce a fun, new Spellbinders die template named Cascade Dots S4-456. 
 Spellbinders is giving away this new die template set , as well as the new die template sets used on previous sneak peek blogs this week and a fabulous grand prize! Be sure to  look at the end of the post for more details and instructions on how to enter the giveaway.
**Please Note: There is a clickable link at the bottom of this post for entering;  commenting on this post does NOT enter you into the giveaway.**
1. Create a card base of 6" x 4 3/4".

2. Cut/emboss one Cascade Dots to use as a template, then, using a craft knife, cut your desired size "rays".
(I used a die cut I had used previously as a stenciling template, hence the glossy accents seen on the picture.)

3. Cut/emboss four Cascade Dots in your desired color, then using the template earlier created, cut your rays using a craft knife.

4.Adhere your pieces onto your card base, creating "rays."

5. Using red thread, sew lines down between each ray created.

6.Cut/emboss Standard Circles Small  die #4 (with 1 being the smallest from the center) in white, using a yellow pen, draw a ring of dots following the embossed edge.

7.Trace then cut out the inside of Standard Circles Small die #3 in navy blue, use Cascade Dots as a stencil and stencil the dots using a white gel pen.

8. Adhere the Standard Small Circles die cuts to card.

9. Adhere bow and button to finish.
