One of the die templates that I showed you on Create and Craft last week was called Imperial Square
There where two cards on display that featured the die used in two different ways.
The Silver and White Imperial Square Card 1 and was on the Blog at the beginning of December
I promised you the Imperial Square Card 2 would be added later .... well here it is
And I thought that maybe I would make this Tuesday Tutorial a regular thing with some of the new Spellbinders that are on the market.
Create your base card from 5x7 Matting Basics A & B in the colors of your choice and emboss the top card
Set aside for a moment while we make the top layers.
From the largest die cut two shapes in your chosen color.
I used black and pink for mine and once die cut I carefully cut down the centre of both to create two halves
Decide which is going to be the top colour to your panels
I used foam pads to raise the top layer up from the base layer
On your base card take these shadowed layers and trim them so that they will fit the front of the card equally.
I added mine again with foam pads to raise them up as this gives more dimension to the layers.
Hide the join in the card with some matching ribbon.
To create the label for the centre use one of the corner dies as the pattern is slightly different on each one.
Then add one to each side of the centre label and add to the card front with foam pads
I also cut another label and inked it to match the card and to this I added in the sentiment
Add in the bow and any other embellishments you wish
And there you have another pretty card from Imperial Square ... tomorrows card will be a variation of the same die template
More tomorrow ...
