Todays tutorial is using the Victorian Collection which is one of my favorite sets
This particular one is Medallions Three and it has a separate outer die that you can use to create the base
It gives such a lacey feel to a card and is sure to please all your female recipients.
Just wrap some ribbon around it and add those flowers and there you have a beautiful card to grace any bodies mantleshelf
For this card I have created my base card in a pale blue and it is a 6" square.
It is this layer that we will work on first.
Cut one of them into quarters and fix foam pads to the back of each piece.
Leave the other piece to one side for now
Wrap ribbon that is wide enough to cover each of the gaps in the centre.
I supported my ribbon with foam pads in the gaps and you can just see them in the photograph
Secure the ribbon on the back and then add foam tape to give dimension.
The layers that you have created with the foam pads or tape will give interest to your card as it creates depth and shadow
I have used #3 Labels One to cut out the words and then mounted it onto #3 Luscious Labels One and I have used foam pads between each layer
Then once you have added in your bow, with a dazzler over the knot and some really pretty flowers you will have a card that you can be proud of.
My final touch was to add a pearl flourish from Want2Scrap coming from behind the floral display
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts apart from the large Gray one which was one of six on a bracelet that I bought form Primark for £1
More tomorrow ...
