Tuesday Tutorial - Decorated Birthday

Hi Everybody,

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.

 Spellbinders Supplies:
Other Supplies:
Instructions:


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 ...

Hugs xx

  1. Christina, a fun card. This set is interesting and I am thinking it would be nice to have to make a fairly quick card and a pretty card. With 30+ people in the immediate family I can never get cards made ahead of time. Now we are expecting our 11th grandson and grandchildren will number 16. I think our family are like rabbits. Lol.
    Thank you for sharing this set.

  9. What a sweet card and especially helpful when a quick card is needed. I can see that this die set could create a simple card or a fancier card with a change of paper and embellishments. Love your flowers!

  15. Hi Christina,
    What a great way to make a shaped card without having to worry about measuring and not cutting the wrong bits...can you tell I'm speaking from experience here lol. I love the blue card you used and aren't those flowers cute. It looks like another add to my Spellbinders wish list although it will have to wait a while as the next purchase has to be the 5x7 matting basics sets :). Thanks for the tutorial.

  25. Hi Christina, sorry I deleted my txt as when I checked before it was not here so I had repeated it more or less on the 30th blog, anyway I think this die is really good think you could make a lot of easy cards with it but will look like you spent an age on them. A cleaver idea. Take care Melody xXx
