Any of the Spellbinders Alphabets can help you bring that special touch to any of your projects.
You can add some ones name ... no matter how unusual the name is.
Add an occasion to the card, recognise a new baby, job or house move with that special message.
Or simply add a single word like Love, Peace, Noel or Joy for any occasion in the card making calendar.
Both of the Alphabets featured are available from Spellbinders and they can make all the difference to your cards.
As long as you have the space on the card to add the word then you can put whatever you want.
I have created two cards using letters from each of the Alphabets that I have.
This card is created with the Jewel Alphabet by Julianna Hudgins and is very ornate
And no matter how hard I try I always add the letters wonky ... so to save the problem I just add them wonky in the first place.
Nothing looks worse than a word that you have supposedly added straight ... only to find out after you have stuck it all in place that it's not.
Save yourself the stress and add it crooked to start.
Raise some of the letters up on foam pads so that one letter sits under another.
And with an Alphabet you can cut as many of the letters that you need as you go along.
The Baby card is from Donna's Alphas by Donna Salazar and the letters are very easy to read.
These are the ones I used on the Keepsake Box and the effects was really pretty.
The pearls are the Frilly Flourish and it is quite a large flourish.
But don't be afraid to cut them up.
Select the part that you want to add to your card and cut that bit off. Save the rest for the next project
Both of these Spellbinders Alphabets are completely different to each other ... which is the main reason I did the two cards.
You can see the difference and choose which ever one suits your needs. One is very simple to read and excellent for everyday sentiments.
The other is very ornate and would suit occasions like weddings, birthdays, special occasions and Christmas.
The edges of the letters have been marked with a silver pen and this really makes them stand out on either set ... bringing them to the fore front.
A lovely touch especially if you add ribbon with silver in it as well. Or try the gold pen for another look.
