As part of my commitment to Spellbinders as their UK Ambassador I write a short tutorial for their blog once a month.
It was my turn at the end of December and I created a pretty card in yellow titled Labels Forty - Happy Birthday Card
But I thought it would be a good idea to show another way to use the same set of dies and so ensuring that you get your monies worth from the dies that you buy.
For this card we are going to use the largest die from Labels Forty to create the base
Then with the same large die I added in the #3 from the Decorative Elements and this made a frame in white
Using some low tack tape will stop the dies from slipping as you put them through your die cutting machine
I used the largest decorative one and added in the next size down #3 and cut this in turquoise.
Both of these can then be added to the base card with foam pads and the pads won't show through because of the white layer to the frame.
Using foam pads between these layers will give dimension to your card and make it much more interesting
The pearl flourish is from Want2Scrap
I used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and for those new to my blog they are a UK company but they will ship abroad
I hope you enjoy this tutorial and will visit again, and it will be my turn again to be add another to tutorial to the Spellbinders Blog towards the end of this month
I will be sure to let you know when it is due.
More tomorrow ...
