Todays tutorial is another of those that will give you two cards for the price of one .. and no waste at all. I have created two cards one gold and the other silver and just by varying the colors and the way you add in flowers, ribbons and pearls will create a new look for you each time.
- S5-164 Grateful Lattice
- S6-001 5x7 Matting Basics A
- S6-002 5x7 Matting Basics B
- S4-425 Elegant Ovals
- GC-200 Grand Calibur
- Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
- Ribbon from Mei Flower
- Glitter from Glitter Magic
- Gold and Silver Card from Craft Show
- Double sided adhesive sheet
With die #7 from Matting basics A create two card bases (Please remember that #1 is always the smallest die)
With die #7 from Matting Basics B and the Grateful Lattice die cut out one panel.
Cover the waste pieces with double sided adhesive sheet and sprinkle with glitter of your choice
I used a fine silver glitter for mine and pressed it on to the adhesive sheet making sure that it is all covered.
Continuing with the silver panel I have got my base as a Hinged card and to this I have cut a smaller silver panel and another in white and embossed this one.
Layer them all together using foam tape under the Lattice panel.
Wrap these with silver ribbon before adding to your base card
Add the full Lattice piece to some gold card using foam tape around the edges of the die cut and another in the centre to support the sentiment
Again I have added in some gold ribbon around the layers before adding them to the base card
With the Elegant Oval I have cut one gold and one silver oval from die #3
I have varied the orientation of these ovals to add another difference to my cards.
I added in my flowers on the gold card to frame the sentiment along the top right corner
I used a selection of Roses in gold and ivory, with Tuscany rosebuds and gypsophilia and all have been sparkled with fine clear glitter
On the silver one I have added them to the bottom of the oval and used camellia, tulips, small rosebuds and gypsophilia
And there you have two lovely cards ready to send and no waste at all from your precious cardstock.
The same ingredients have been used for both cards but they look completely different
Look at other dies in your collection and see if you can repeat this tutorial with them.
More tomorrow ...
