Since the tutorial last week I have had many emails telling me how much you love the Victorian Collection from Spellbinders
And many of you have also said that you have the Medallions Three and enjoy working with it.
So for todays tutorial I am staying with this lovely die and showing you a couple of ideas that you can do with it to ring the changes
Matting Basics A #7 (#1 is always the smallest) in white
From some petty blue card I cut another mat from Matting Basics B #7
The other white layer is cut from #4 Matting Basics A
I added my panels to the white with foam pads to give depth to the design
The next thing we are going to do is create a double frame to sit around this panel
Tape them in place so that they don't move and with the EMBOSSING sandwich run them through the machine
This will push the impression of the dies into the card but won't cut it ... you are just embossing
Once you have embossed the card very carefully remove the centre die #5 without disturbing the other two dies
And this time you are going to use the CUTTING sandwich for your machine
Once you have done this, again carefully remove the tape and the dies from the card ...
To the back of this frame we can now attach the foam pads we need to raise it up
Dress it up any way you wish and you will have a really pretty card to give to someone special.
I have added satin ribbon from Mei Flower to mine and tied it in a single bow
The blue and white flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts
Behind the flowers I have added some pieces of pearl flourish from Want2Scrap
The base card and frame are created in the same way but I have added in the Medallions Three to the top and bottom of the frame and trimmed it to fit.
The sentiment is stamped and embossed and then cut with Labels One and then mounted onto Luscious Labels One
There you have one die and two ways to use it as well as the variation I showed you in last weeks tutorial
Such a versatile die and such beautiful cards created from it.
More tomorrow ...
