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

Labels Twenty Five
Create a Hinged card for the base (Video Tutorial)
The picture shows what you the result
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 #3 and #2 together cut the filigree pattern in white
Glue these two together and add foam pads to the back of them
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.
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
Lining the inside of the card to match the front will give a professional look and it will stand better
More tomorrow ...
