Spellbinders Floral Ribbon Threader is one of the A2 Card Creator Dies
There are many to choose from in this size and although the cards are small they can be just as beautiful as the larger counterparts.
They are ideal for posting as the cost will be kept down for you... especially if you are sending your cards a long distance
Let the video show you how to create beautiful cards
In the video More About Card Sizes
I explained the differences between the US and the UK A2 sizes and there is a vast amount.
But Spellbinders have created a range of dies that will make US A2 cards in one simple pass of your die cutting machine ... and it is fast becoming a size that is catching on in the UK too.
And of course with postage costs the way they are the smaller size will saveyour pennies and still give you a card that you can be really proud of
So I have added several short videos on this size of card that will give you some idea of the versatility of these dies.
And show you how with a few other embellishments that you probably already have in your crafting "Stash" ... you can make these dies and this sized card work for you.
You may wonder why you would need to buy two sets of matting dies that look identical but in the video Matting Basics I explained how these two work together to give you a smaller frame around the mats.
And although I showed this with the 5 x 7 matting basics the principal is the same with the smaller A2 matting basics dies.
Here is the A2 Spellbinders Floral Ribbon Threader ....
If it is your preference to make the larger cards then you can still use the same set.
For this pictured card I have simply added it to a larger card base as I have completed the layers and this will create another design. Use it portrait or landscape ... the choice is yours
This makes the sets even more versatile for you.
And as your confidence with Spellbinders grows you will come up with even more ideas on ways to use any of the ones that you have added to your own collection
The flowers used on both these cards are from Wild Orchid Crafts
