Todays card is one of the new additions to the Spellbinders range and this is the Decorated Birthday.
The die cuts the whole shape of the card for you and all you have to do is fold and decorate it. I chose to use the flowers die that is in the set and I am happy with the result.
Lay the main part to the die cutting edge down into the correct side of your card and cut and emboss and remove from the die.
Carefully fold the card along the scored lines left by the die starting at the front. Mountain fold the first two and valley fold the second two. Mountain fold the top part to the card and also waht will create the back of it. Your card should now look like the photo.
Cut the Happy Birthday section from some card of your choice and carefully remove from the die. I sued spray adhesive on the back of mine and pressed it into place on the front panel
Cut the flowers and leaves ... I chose to cut mine in white and then ink with Distress Inks using a sponge dauber. layer the parts to the flowers and add a corresponding leaf to the back of each one.
I added a pearl to the centre of each flower too. I have inked the crown with Gold but you could simply cut it from gold card
Space the flowers and leaves onto your card and add the crown at a jaunty angel to the top of the sentiment panel
More tomorrow ...
