Tuesday Tutorial - Floral Gazebo

Hi Everybody,

Todays tutorial is using the beautiful Floral Gazebo from Spellbinders and this can make the loveliest of wedding cards for you so easily.
Here I have dressed it up with flowers, ribbons and pearls and I am very happy with the result.
Spellbinders Supplies:

Other Supplies:

Instructions:

For the base I have folded an A4 piece of cream card in half along the short side and simply cut it in half. This will  give me two cards with the fold at the top to work on.  Save the other piece for another project.

I have matted and layered it with some vintage paper and cut a smaller layer 8x11 cms and layered that with the same paper
With the Gazebo I have cut two pieces ... one in card and the other in Craft Foam and glued the two pieces together.  This will make the die cut thicker as it is added to your card
Off setting the smaller panel I have added it to my card and wrapped the layers with ribbon before adding them to the base. Trim the panels as needed.
Have a practise run with where to add the bow, flowers and leaves and when you are happy with the arrangement  glue them in place.  Add in the appropriate sentiment using foam pads to raise it up.

Designers Tip:

Vary the color scheme to suit the wedding and the sentiment to suit the occasion. The die is pretty enough to blend with anything and this is the only die used on this card

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  1. A lovely card Christina! I'm a huge fan of pink so this card holds great appeal but the die cut is beautiful against the softness of your background paper, wide ribbon and fabulous flowers! This could easily fit so many occasions, including a birthday card, thinking of you, wedding and even sympathy. I really appreciate that you share versatile cards and easy to follow tutorials. Thank you!

    What a pretty card! I love the background paper you've used and the gazebo die is really intricate. I think I'm going to practice using craft foam with my dies for a different effect :). Thanks for the tutorial. xx
