I recently purchased the Spellbinders Grand Labels Eleven, just for the reason of making card bases with it. I haven't tried in my Vagabond, but I can get the second largest die through my Cuttlebug with the long plates, yippee!
This card will be going off to Susan here in Southern California. Susan has some major health difficulties and is in need of cheer. What do you think, is this cheery enough?!
The bg is done with the SU! reinkers, the flowers were painted with the Inktense blocks, then a coat of the Judikins gold mica inks. These inks can be used as watercolors by just putting into a pallet and adding water. Talk about some fantastic colors, I love the glimmer the mica inks add to the projects.
Anyhow, I hope this card will go a long way in bringing some sunshine into Susan's life. TFL

The second-largest fits in your Cuttlebug! Then for sure it would fit in the Big Shot. I've always held off the Grand dies because I have no intention of ever getting the Grand Calibur and can't afford a Big Shot Pro, but this is interesting to know. Great shape for your gorgeously coloured base - and those flowers are fascinating. I love their sinuous shapes; they remind me of the photos someone has been sharing in the photography forum of a Chilhuly exhibition in her local Botanic Gardens.
