Spellbinders Show Card No.6 – Folded Lace Cut, Tuck and Fold Die Set

August 9, 2013 — 26 Comments

Here is another card sample that I made for the recent run of Spellbinders shows on Create and Craft TV using the Folded Lace Cut, Tuck and Fold Die Set die set.

Spellbinders Show Sample 6 Folded Lace Die Set

Starting with the background paper I chose the green papers to match. I then cut some layers from these and also one of the largest and smallest Folded Lace dies.

I then cut mats using the mat dies from the Folded Lace dies.

The design was finished off with a few small gems and yes, one of them did fall off :(

    Thanks for the lovely clear photos, I only bought a couple of cut, fold, tuck dies recently and had to use the internet for information how to do it. I didn’t think I was that stupid but obviously I am, it is so easy when you find out how!



    Great card John, love the backing paper too. I bought double sided card for my C&F dies. One side is a paler version of the other side, so the C&F’s show up nicely.



    Hi John. Really hope you continue to do demos . When describing how to do the various cards on your blog would it be possible to say which colours you are using.I know I can see its green but which shade.Many thanks. Mabel



      I’ll do my best but to be honest I never really anticipate the someone will copy my cards verbatim so I leave colour choices to the individual.



    HI john Just found your block whilst watching your show. Can I ask a question. recently purchased some spell binder embossing folders, the Royal rook being one. I notices that on the demo card shown they used gilding wax. I have some but do not get the right effect. can you assist me please.



      The recommended application method is by using a cloth and very lightly wipe it over the embossed surface.

      In practice I have found them less mailable.

      I therefore generally use a finger to apply it as warms the wax and I feel like I have more control. Do bear in mind though that you will need some warm soapy water to get it off your fingers.

      Hope this helps :)



    Hi John, what a lovely card you are so talented. I wonder if you would mind me asking you a couple of questions please? I don’t know if you remember but I mentioned a couple of weeks ago I was unable to use the raspberry embossing plate in my original Spellbinders Grand Calibur machine.

    My second question is can you tell me if there will be any more Cricut machine programmes on C&C. I love my various Cricut machines and always enjoyed (and learned) something each time you and Melanie demonstrated them. Really hope they will be back in the near future.

    Many thanks



      Sorry for the delay. I have contacted Spellbinders with your query and am awaiting a response. Will let you know when I have a reply :)

      In the meantime here is a section on the Spellbinders website that you might also find useful. It contains how to videos, product instructions and much more – http://spellbinderspaperarts.com/HowTo.aspx

      As for Cricut shows I am afraid that I have no information on this at the moment. I have not heard of anything in the pipeline for the near future. I hope that C&C do more as I have always enjoyed doing the shows.

      Hope this reply helps a little :)

      A couple of questions Sylvia.

      1. Which embossing folders are you using?
      2. What ‘sandwich’ are you using?

      Feel free to reply on here or email me (link at the top right of this blog – looks like an envelope).



        Hi John, I have no trouble at all embossing and cutting the normal dies and folders for which I use the following sandwiches.

        Grey base plate A
        Rubber Embossing Mat
        Pink Embossing Plate B

        Die Cutting
        Grey base plate A
        White Plate C

        The embossing folder I am unable to use is the Spellbinders 3D M-Bossabilities as this is too thick to go through my Grand Calibur using the normal base plate.

        As mentioned my Grand Calibur is one of the original models manufactured. The sandwich instructions are in a booklet. I think on the later versions the sandwich instructions were actually printed onto the white plate at the front of the Grand Calibur.

        Many thanks again for your help.




        I think I spy the issue. With 3d folders you’ll need to use this sandwhich –

        Pink Embossing plate (not the grey/blue base plate).
        Folder with your card in.
        Raspberry plate.

        If you try this and let me know how you get on :)



    Just joined your blog -Beautiful card John love the colour matches you are so talented x



    Came through your post via Spellbinders RT on Twitter…love your card and the green tones. CFT dies are one of my favorite “EASY” techniques to use on a card and send to friends who think you worked on it for HOURS! LOL!! Wonderful inspiration :)



    Hi John
    An elegant and classy card and the backing paper is lovely. If your on again tomorrow, I shall miss it as Im off to the GBCF at Stoneleigh. Good luck!



    Hi John
    This is the best card yet. I love the colours. Where did you get the lovely backing paper. The only problem I have is that if I had any of that paper I would want to keep it!!
    Carry on crafting ( it could be a film starring you and some of the C&C presenters-definitely Martyn and Howard)

    Hi John what a great card this is, love all the shades of green you have used. The cut fold and tuck dies are great.
    I finally managed to get to play with mine the other day and really enjoyed using them.
    Looking forward to your shows tomorrow. Best wishes from Katie-Louise

    I thought this was a delightful card and would love to make it. Please John, is the Lace Design on the Green Card a Stamp?



    Another stunning card. I have never used the Cut, Tuck and Fold dies but I’m considering purchasing one after seeing your lovely examples. Cannot wait for the shows tomorrow, hope you enjoy them. Take care.



    Hi John, really like the card. Colours and background paper compliment each other.well. Have ordered another cut, tuck and fold dies so looking forward to using them. Your demonstrations are really inspiring and I look forward to see what you are going to do next.!



    Hi John, lovely card as always,, i have brought these dies so you have given me some inspiration, keep them coming as i love to see tour work :-D



    This is so effective. I love the addition of the gems. I’ve watched some of the spellbinders stuff and I think I am going to have to give it a go.



    What a glouriously peacefull card, I love the colurs and that lacy background sets it all off beautifully
