Tuesday Tutorial - Heirloom Oval

Hi Everybody,

Todays tutorial is using the Heirloom Oval from my all time favorite Victorian Collection. This is the most beautiful set of dies and I love using these often on my designs.  This particular set comes with an outer oval shape that can be used to cut the base and this is the foundation for my card

Spellbinders Supplies:

From white card I have created my base using die  #4

Take one piece fold over the top by about 1" and glue together

(Please remember that die #1 is always the smallest in any set)
To create the frame use #4 and #2 and cut two ovals one from white and the other from your chosen color

My card is a 255gsm and because these dies are not intricate I was able to cut both pieces together 

You may have to do them one at a time if your card is thicker 

Then with die #3 I lined it up onto my colored card and cut the pattern into the card

Once this is done I glued these two pieces together to create a colored frame that is now backed with white


I stamped and embossed my sentiment onto a piece of card that was larger then the aperture in my frame

Adding foam pads to the back of the frame will raise it up from the sentiment which makes the card more interesting
Add the frame in place carefully over the sentiment and  trim around the edge to remove the surplus card

Angle the scissors just under the edge and cut around ... that way the sentiment will fit under the frame with no card showing through.

I placed my sentiment on the  finished card off centre and added  flowers from  Wild Orchid Crafts  around one side.

I also added foam tape to the back of this panel before adding it to the base



From Les Papillions Two I cut the solid layer in peach and the lacy layer in white and glued the two together at the body line.

Bending the wings up a little gives some dimension and I glued it to the frame work just along the body part

I used La Creme Pearls from  Want2Scrap to highlight the flowers and along the butterflies body line

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
