Today I am using Spellbinders Labels Thirty Four and some of the other pieces that match. It is a set of dies has been around for quite some time and maybe you already have them in your crafting "Stash"
It makes the most beautiful card and it could be for any occasion. Just by altering the colors and embellishments you can make it suit your recipient. Please remember that the smallest die is always #1 (Number One)
Within this tutorial you will find other links that will take you to a Video Tutorial that is relevant
For the base I have cut my card free hand to 7 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches to Create a Hinged Card
From the pink card I have cut a slightly smaller layer
From another piece of white card that is slightly smaller I have created another layer
Letter Press Technique
The video will show you how to achieve the look and explain about the different effects within the folder
I have used a very pale pink for my card and a brayer to add the ink to the folder
With the Decorative Labels Thirty Four and using dies # 3 and #4 I have cut panels in the pink card
And from Labels Thirty Four #5 I have cut one panel in white.
This has then been placed back into the centre of the embossing folder and run through the Calibur
You can ink through the die if you wish to enhance the sentiment but for my finished card I haven't done this
Foam pads have been added to each of these layers
This will give some dimension to the card and add more interest
The ribbon has been added to the bottom of the card and then the layers can be added to the base card.
I have added beautiful pale pink and white flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts to sit around the sentiment
They are sparkled with Glitter Magic and my satin ribbon is from Mei Flower And as a final touch I have added in a white Dove to the top left of the card.
Designers Tip:Try adding your ink to the opposite side of the folder for a completely different look to your card.
