Tuesday Tutorial - Majestic Labels Twenty-Five

Hi Everybody,

I like to buy the matching pieces to the die sets to make them go further and give me my monies worth. and this set is so pretty and can be used in lots of ways.

For this card we are going to create lots of layers and a frame for hold the centre piece. I have used white and purple Centura Pearl for my design  ... and there are two other video tutorials within this written one ... just click the links to view

Spellbinders Supplies:

5x7 Matting Basics A
Majestic Labels Twenty Five 
Labels Twenty Five
Labels Eleven

 Cut two pieces in white from 5x7 Matting Basics A  #7  (#1 is always the smallest die)

Create a Hinged card for the base  (Video Tutorial)

From the same die cut two more pieces one in white and the other in your chosen color

On the purple card I have carefully positioned  #6 from Majestic Labels Twenty Five and cut and embossed it.

The picture shows what you the result

Place this panel over the white one so that the edges marry up and with a pencil lightly trace around the #5 from Labels Twenty Five

Remove the purple panel and cut the white one with the #5 die taped in place aligning with your pencil lines

Once cut you should then have a solid white piece and the filigree pattern to go on the top to create your frame and it will look like the picture

Trim if needed, glue both pieces together and then add foam pads to the back of the frame.

From #6 Labels Twenty Five cut a colored layer

With the white panel from the step above place #5 from Majestic Labels Twenty Five and tape in place then cut and emboss

Layer these two together with foam pads and for mine I have used a double layer  (one on top of the other) ... to raise it above the framework

From #4 Majestic Labels Twenty Five cut one colored layer

From #4  #3 and #2 together cut the filigree pattern in white

Glue these two together and add foam pads to the back of them

Stamp and heat emboss the sentiment in silver and with  #4 Labels Eleven cut it out.

With the same die trace around the outside edge and carefully cut it out

This will create a  Faux Nestie  (Video Tutorial) that leaves a small border around the sentiment

Glue these two together and add foam pads to the back of them.

Build up the layers to your card and wrap ribbon around them before you add it to the base card leaving the sentiment last

The foam pads will create shadows and depth and so add interest to your design

I have added in a pretty Hat pin to my card and a white satin double bow

Designers Tip:

Lining the inside of the card to match the front will give a professional look  and it will stand better 

More tomorrow ...

  23. Another awesome card. I think this is one of my favorites.


  24. Loved the blue and white hinged card, don't have the matting basics dies but i am sure I can use my guillotine to cut the card to size. I also liked that you used 2 square dies and made them look as though it was just 1 oblong. For me the finished card didn't need the extra bling. Margaret xxx
