Just a quick and easy card for todays tutorial as I am sure that many of you are not in cardmaking mode over the holiday season.... too many others things to be doing. So this is using just two sets of dies and one embossing folder to create this pretty card for any occasion
- S$-640 Botanical Flutters
- S4-642 Twisted Floral Tags
- SEL-007 Blistered Embossing Folder
- PL-001 Platinum Die cutting machine
- Cream/ Turquoise card from Papermill Direct
- Silver Mirror Card from Craft Stash
- Hummingbird stamp set free with SC&P 153
To create the card base simply fold an A4 sheet of cream card in half along the short side and then cut in half to give you two cards.
Cut a smaller panel in turquoise to leave a small border around the edge.
Cut another slightly smaller panel in cream and emboss this
Cut the parts of the die that you wish to add to your card.
I used the two butterfly pieces and the bird
Add small foam pads in strategic places to the back of these pieces
Using the loops on the butterfly pieces link them together
Stamp and heat emboss your sentiment and cut one of the tags
Add foam pads to the back of this for dimension
Add the tag to the embossed panel and add in the looped butterfly pieces along the bottom edge.
Place the bird at the top of the tag
Add all this to the turquoise panel and then add to the base card
It creates a card with just a little dimension that will fit into a standard envelope
More tomorrow ...
