For todays tutorial I thought it would be good to have a little fun and create this card. So for this it is time to get out those border dies that I have featured in other tutorials.
I used them before in a much more elegant way and you will find a couple of really pretty ideas ... Scalloped Borders One
This card is very easy to do and the sentiment can be anything that reflects the occasion you are making the card for.
Fold an A4 piece of white card in half and then cut that in half to give you an A2 top folded card.
From the Spotty card create a slightly smaller layer. And from more white card create another layer that is slightly smaller than the spotty one
Take the white layer and stamp the sentiment of your choice towards the bottom of the card.
Emboss the card and then take one of the cutting edges of the Scalloped Borders and place it at an angle on the card with the curve facing to the top.
Tape the die in place on your card and run it through your die cutting machine ... there is no need to emboss the card again. Re position the die and repeat the process twice more so that you have divided the card into four panels.
You may need to trim these down a little to fit onto your colored layer but only along the straight edges. Add foam tape to the back of these panels
Add a piece of double sided sheet to both sides of some Craft foam and cut out the word YOU
From either colored card or some black cut the word again making sure that you have your card the correct way round to cut YOU
Add the colored/black layer to the craft foam ready to add to your card
Cut the Sun in yellow card from the Day Dreams set and once all the elements are prepared we can assemble the card.
Add the spotty card to the base ... layer on the scalloped pieces with the curves facing up to represent clouds and the foam tape gives some dimension to the clouds.
Tuck the sun in behind the third layer with your sentiment added and place the word YOU to blend in with the sentiment.
And there is really fun card to send to anyone for any occasion.
